Some interesting data on mobiles.

{edit: this link seems to be dead.. hmmm }

Notice Microsoft’s rise in the voice-centric sector. I believe this growth will double that over the next year, with more and more Pocket PC devices around on phones and WiFi devices.

This will make it really easy, using existing skills and technology, to create compelling content with html, Flash, and windows media. The potential for mobile feedback, comments, opinion polls etc are huge. And at very little cost.

The people behind the product, Flash Studio Pro [http://www.multidmedia.com] (which I have banged on to a few of you about already) have just assured my they will have a Mac output plugin hopefully by end of July… this means ‘Skinkers’ for all!

BUT.. they have said that a PocketPC standalone executable output will be available sooner. (I will be on the beta program)

Stand-alone executables on PocketPC, created using Flash (with a host of extra functions provided by FSP) will enable us to create mindblowingly cool applications for PocketPC devices. News aggregators, voting booths, image/audio/video uploaders and viewers, blogging tools, video consoles, all sorts… oh, and news stories and specials πŸ˜‰

It would also be very easy to obtain valuable usage and tracking statistics from these applications, based on FSP’s ability to retrieve a lot of system data from the pc or device. MAC addresses (unique to each device) ip addresses obviously, machine ‘names’; all sorts! πŸ˜‰

God, I want a Motorola MPx ! πŸ˜‰ [ HERE…. ]


Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at podcast.com for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
