Think of it as YouTube for your phone, with a Google twist.
Vodafone is poised to launch a video upload-and-view service that will allow customers who have camera-enabled mobiles to upload MMS or WAP videos the Vodafone Live portal, for viewing by one and all. The most-watched videos will earn their creators actual cash as well, as Vodafone rewards the videos with the most downloads in a given time period.
You don’t have to have a mobile to download those videos, of course. A PC works just as well. An enhanced search function will accompany the online presence.
We’ll find out more details about this new use of the Live portal at Cebit, the Hanover, Germany, trade show.
