Nokia pushed further into the mobile services space with the launch of its social networking site “Share on Ovi,” which went live today. Based on technology acquired from U.S. company Twango, users of Share can organize and manage multiple media formats and share uploaded content easily among contacts and other sites.
Nokia acquired Twango about six months ago.
On the new Share on Ovi blog, the Twango “team” wrote about recent changes to the service, including the “new look and feel” that will be common to all Ovi services and a “streamlined user interface.” The blog post also cites improvements to the service infrastructure, which will allow it to scale to millions of users. The Share Online tool allows users to capture photos and videos and upload them to the service directly from their Nokia mobile phones. The new site also includes tools to let users view their content or content from contacts more easily on a mobile phone.
Nokia also rolled out its delayed online gaming service N-Gage today.
