Mobile Marketing : E-Series Blog Archive – Five Reasons Why I Like Widsets

mars 19, 2007

Here is a good article from E-series Blog on Widsets and their evolution :

With the risk of sounding like a broken record (I have written about Widsets several times before) here is my list of why I really like Widsets – the company behind, stunningly beautiful mobile Widgets.

Continuous improvement
I was very impressed with the first release of Widsets, which I wrote about back in June 2006 (If you are new to Widsets I recommend you start with that post, it will give you a good overview of what Widsets are).

Since then, Widsets have gone through a number of enhancements each one gradually improving the service. The last enhancement I wrote about was in September 2006. Since September the Widsets team have been busy working on the library of Widsets, the application itself and enhancement to the website. Which leads us to next reason..great website.

Great Website
I really, really like their website. It is simple, beautiful AND very functional. A pretty amazing combination to pull off. So many websites are either beautiful or functional. Some websites are simple but not beautiful.

Their newly redesign website makes registration for new users and managing your widsets even easier. Great work guys! (the web team at Nokia could learn a lot from Widsets’ web designers)

There is also a new Widset simulator online so that you can take Widsets for a spin online without actually downloading the application.


Future Potential
From the very first time I used Widset I always felt that the application and service have so much future potential. I am fully convinced that we’ve only seen the very beginning of what Widsets can become. I can’t wait for future versions of the service. I wonder what Widsets will look like one, two, three years from now.

Attitude!
This is a company driven by passion! I’ve never met anyone from Widset but it is easy to tell from their blog, their website and their excellent user forum that the people of Widset truly believe in their product. I like the fact that they are approachable and open. Ping the people at Widset and you *will* hear from them! That is a sign of a company that cares.
It also seems as if they have a lot of fun while working. It must be a good place to work!

ver Growing Library Of Great Widgets
If you haven’t tried Widsets I strongly suggest you do – you’ll like it. If you tried it before but for some reason haven’t used it for a while you have an equally great reason to try it out – you’ll be mighty impressed.

Most of the earlier widgets were more or less RSS feeds. While that isn’t bad in itself it might not impress the hard core users.

However, new widgets such as the excellent Wikipedia widget which lets you search Wikipedia. For all those Sudoku fanatics I can recommend the Sudoko widget.

There are also great widgets for eBay, BBC, 43Things, Digg, Technocrati, Flickr and a widget for this very blog – the E-series widget

Mobile Marketing – Press Release : Nokia Service Suite prepares the way for tomorrow’s mobility today

octobre 31, 2006

Technology Innovators already offering Consumer Services

The convergence of cellular and Internet technologies has reached a stage where the future of mobility will be determined by players ready to take the next step. For consumers, using a PC and broadband connection to reach friends and family around the globe has become a familiar procedure. Now with dual mode phones and the increasing availability of home and hotspot wireless LANs (WLANs), consumers can get to the next level.

Nokia today announced Nokia Service Suite, a software solution which automates both the connectivity over the available access methods like cellular and WLAN, and also provides the preferred location and presence specific services to the user. Nokia Service Suite heralds a whole new generation of consumer services for voice, data and rich media. Telio, a leading European broadband telephony provider and technology innovator, is the first to adopt and deploy the technology for consumers.

Nokia Service Suite is capable of simplifying and economizing any communication application – the download and upload of rich media, including pictures, music, video podcasts, email and voice. Nokia Service Suite does this by automating connectivity and achieving the most convenient combination of cellular and WLAN access.

Alan Duric, Chief Technology Officer and co-Founder of Telio said about the Nokia Service Suite: « The combination of Nokia’s powerful solution and Telio’s flexible technology platform has enabled a whole new world of possibilities that go well beyond VoIP. As a core technology, I see Nokia Service Suite creating a wave of innovation in the mobile industry and revolutionizing the way people will communicate in future. »

« Nokia Service Suite opens up great new business potential for new and existing services that can be seamlessly deployed by providers and easily consumed by end-users. Telio has proven to be a valuable front runner in the adoption of our technology for consumers. We are delighted with the close cooperation, » said Markku Rauhamaa, Vice President of Local Interactions at Nokia Emerging Business Unit. « All the elements are now in place for the public to enjoy a richer, more economical and accessible mobile experience. »

The possibilities enabled by Nokia Service Suite are already being commercially deployed by service providers like Telio as well as Information and Communications Technology (ICT) companies, including Fujitsu Services Oy.

Nokia Service Suite is available today for all Nokia WLAN enabled dual mode devices, both Nokia Nseries and Nokia Eseries devices. Equally important, the Nokia Service Suite is an open platform that can be used for other WLAN enabled devices. For example, the Nokia N80 Internet Edition is a multimedia computer optimized for Internet Calls. The VoIP framework, based on SIP-protocol is integrated into its user interface, so making an Internet Call on the Nokia N80 Internet Edition is as easy as making a regular voice call, only the call is carried over WLAN.

Nokia Service Suite makes its official debut and will be demonstrated at VON Europe Autumn 2006 Conference in Berlin Germany on November 6 – 8.
