Nokia social network beta
Finnish phone maker Nokia has begun a semi-public beta of a social networking site, InfoWorld reports. Called Mosh, it is used by mobile subscribers to upload and download items such as images, videos and ringtones, which can then be tagged for search or kept in a personal collection. In spite of its association with Nokia, Mosh is open to anyone with an approved e-mail address; the only advantage of a Nokia phone is the ability to download a client that provides faster access.
File sizes can be as large as 100MB, but Nokia recommends downloading from a PC, since items can then be transferred directly to a phone without incurring data fees. No date for the complete opening of Mosh has been set.
