Nokia readies for a perfect Twango

We have heard about Google buying href="http://youtube.com">YouTube and News Corp buying MySpace, and this time another giant to snap up another social networking site is Nokia. The largest manufacturer of mobile phones has acquired the picture sharing site Twango. While the market speculates if Nokia would really do the popular dance with its new acquisition; Nokia striking a confident smile have announced, “ The Twango acquisition is a concrete step towards our Internet services vision of providing seamless access to information, entertainment, and social networks – at anytime, anywhere, from any connected device, in any way that you choose.”

Hmm ... so much so, seems like it makes some sense after all. Nokia has till date sold over 140 million connected cameras, and would further want to ensure that the users enjoy all that mobile multimedia goodness as much as possible.

The platter of Twango indeed comes with desirable goodies. The service allows users to share, organise, and republish photos, videos and audio clips easily. Unlike the popular photo-sharing site Flickr, Twango also supports multiple media types (110 file types in total). Further, the Twango platform allows developers to create companion applications, connect with mobile devices, and integrate with other Web services.

If the near future has any radical change in store for social networking services, and if mobile phones increasingly become the primary tool for accessing and sharing them – its sure a clap clap to the futuristic vision of Nokia.
