Access to social media and networking takes on new dimension as new portal allows integration to the mobile phone Monday 21 April 2008 PDF Print New mobile portal brings together social networking, instant messaging, mobile ringtones, games and shopping all in one place and all available directly from the mobile handset London-based global mobile solutions integrator Infinite Solutions Ltd (ISL) has today launched Brightpod (www.brightpod.com) which, for the first time, allows mobile users to truly realise the potential of their mobile handset. The mobile entertainment portal is available online as well as via the mobile device and offers users the chance to use all their favourite services under one roof. The portal integrates mobile entertainment such as videos, games, themes and applications with instant messaging and online shopping. One of the key features of Brightpod is its ability to offer multi-platform instant messaging (with chat rooms) available from the majority of mobile handsets. Users can use their existing instant messaging account on, for example, MSN or Yahoo directly from their mobile. Brightpod has been developed for the mobile phone within a Java application that has the look and feel of a Flash-based website. This means that users experience virtually the same quality on the mobile device as they would on the desktop. Brightpod uses a leading payment service that ensures a secure method of making payments via the mobile phone and also offers age verification. Users complete a simple registration process (during which they are advised not to pass out personal information) and for additional security the service offers a limited personal profile available for view. Commenting on the product’s launch, ISL’s Chief Executive Officer, Duncan Ward adds: ‘With the massive growth of social media and networking sites in recent years the next logical step is for users to demand accessibility from their mobile phones. Brightpod really takes this to a new level as users have this fantastic functionality straight to their mobile device. Being able to use your existing instant messaging account on your mobile as if you were in front of your PC is very exciting and saves users swapping between sites. Brightpod encompasses all that the modern mobile user has ever wanted from the device. In addition we are able to offer the latest mobile content such as ringtones, games and applications at vastly lower costs than the leading providers.’ - ends – Editor’s Notes: The content is universally U rated as per telecommunication guidelines / code of practise which means it is suitable for all. Parents and guardians also have the added advantage of being able to use parental controls on our payment system to further protect minors. The mobile payment service is available in 200 countries worldwide. The attached screen shot shows Brightpod as seen from the mobile phone.
