Nokia, Six Apart come together on mobile blogging

handset maker Nokia announced a partnership with blog services developer Six Apart to equip its N-series multimedia handsets with the firm's Vox free personal blogging app. The Vox service promises consumers a simple interface for uploading video, photos and text from their handsets to their weblogs; the Vox website will host the multimedia content, although users may also post their pictures and video clips to sites like MySpace and Blogger. The Nokia N93i, also introduced at CES, is the first product to include the Vox service.

"People want to share their discoveries instantly with friends and family, and Vox is a perfect service to share your videos and photos," said Nokia's director of multimedia experiences Mikko Pilkama in a prepared statement. "We want to make sure that Nokia N-series offers the best possible way for people to participate in Web 2.0 communities when they're mobile. Nokia and Six Apart are making it easy for people to connect and share their photos, videos and life experiences without being tied to a PC."
