Motorola and Avvenu Announce New Mobile Service for Image Sharing On the Go - Jan 5, 2006 08:00 AM (PR Newswire)
With new Motorola Share service, photos stored on your computer can be viewed and shared remotely using your Motorola mobile phone
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Today at the Consumer Electronics Show, Motorola Inc. (NYSE:MOT), a global leader in wireless communications and Avvenu, a Palo Alto, California based start-up specializing in remote access and sharing technology, announced Motorola Share, a free service for mobile users providing on-the-go image access and sharing capabilities from a wide range of Motorola mobile devices -- including the popular RAZR, ROKR, and V557 models.
Sharing photos with the new service is easy, requiring only an Internet- connected computer with Motorola Share software and a web-enabled mobile handset.* From a mobile device, users can view images stored on their computer and select a guest to share them with. An email notification with a link grants the guest safe, password-protected access to only the images selected. Users of the service maintain complete control over what pictures are shared, who has access to them and for how long.
The Motorola Share service is flexible, allowing for optimized image viewing on the mobile phone screen. An automatic image scaling feature enables users to share even high-resolution photos with ease. Also, because images are stored on the user's Internet-connected computer, the service does not require guests to download the images to their mobile phone or upload to a centralized server, reducing time for image load and preview.
