Vodafone 360 has been announced today. It’s the new name for Vodafone Live, ie, the new icon on your phone you will NEVER EVER CLICK ON or even put the cursor anywhere near for fear of spending ten minutes staring at your phone while a load of adverts/ring tones/wallpapers blunder down the inadequate pipe.
They’ve got Samsung to make a phone that also says “360” on it and put out a press release that goes on about Twitter.
In other news, the new Extra-Last HTC Magic has arrived. The novelty has worn off and it is yet to receive a call or text message. But it is nice.
Vodafone Announces Vodafone 360
24 September 2009
A Suite of Innovative, New Internet Services for Mobile and PC
24 September, 2009. London. Vodafone today announces the launch of Vodafone 360 – a new suite of innovative internet services for the mobile and PC.
All of a customer’s contacts, status updates and messaging services are brought together in one place enhancing the customer’s experience and use of social media. Customers will have integrated contacts, music, photos and mapping services and can share their favourite music choices and even their physical location, how and when they choose, with their chosen groups of friends.
The service is automatically backed up and synchronised, regularly and wirelessly, between the mobile and PC or Mac. All contacts updates, emails, photos and conversation history or settings changes made either at home or when on the move are saved, keeping all the content up-to-date.
“Vodafone 360 is the first service of its kind to offer customers the benefits of a truly integrated mobile internet experience that gathers all their contacts and content, all around them, in one place,” said Pieter Knook, Director of Internet Services at Vodafone Group.
“The beauty of Vodafone 360 is that all the services work together and they are easy to use. Vodafone 360 enables customers’ digital lives. Customers can stay in touch and share experiences through social networks, instant messaging, email, apps, maps, music and buying digital content on their mobile bill, with the personalised address book at its heart.”
