New Geo-location social networking platform accredited for Nokia's N95
and 6110 Navigator
AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, November 23 /CNW/ - GyPSii the leading
geo-location and social networking platform and service for mobile phones and
other Internet-connected devices, today confirmed that the Symbian version of
the GyPSii application has been accredited by Nokia for its N95 and 6110
Navigator mobile phones.
GyPSii combines - in a web-based application - a social networking
platform, location-based news and services such as search and friend-finder,
and user generated content-creation and sharing.
Designed specifically for use on a mobile phone, the GyPSii platform is
already compatible with Windows Mobile devices and by adding Symbian and Nokia
support, GyPSii is now available on the vast majority of mobile phones and
almost any Internet connected device. GyPSii for Nokia and Windows Mobile is
available for download at the company's website- www.gypsii.com.
"Consumer demand for mobile location based services is rising
dramatically," said Dan Harple, CEO of GyPSii, "and widespread handset
compatibility is key to any company wishing to launch new and exciting
services such as GyPSii into that market.
"Symbian is the dominant handset operating system, and Nokia the dominant
handset manufacturer - as demonstrated by its increase in global market share
to 39(*) per cent and sales of some 111 million devices in Q3 of 2007 alone.
Adding Symbian capability, accredited by Nokia, to the GyPSii platform is
therefore a major breakthrough and milestone endorsement," he added.
Bena Roberts, Chief Mobile Search Analyst of BKI Media added:
"Geo-location is nearing the tipping point. It's the connector that is
currently missing from the mobile search, data and UGMC market. But soon it
will, without a doubt, be the backbone of the mobile communication ecosystem.
Knowing where your friends are, how to meet them, where they have been and
what they thought of it, will transform the mobile interface from a passive
device to an active addictive tool."
GyPSii integrates a wide range of location-specific functions and
services into a single easy-to-use interface that works on GPS and
non-GPS-enabled devices alike. These functions include user-generated content,
friend finding and sharing, and also Point-of-Interest (POI) proximity search
for immediate surroundings, maps and directions.
