CTIA – Comverse-Secondlife-Samsung:CCSS episode #1

Posted by shimikoif on April 7, 2008

This week in CTIA I had the chance to be @ Samsung booth. Together with their phones (quite impressive ones) and infra services, it seems that they decided to invest in SecondLife enablement, specifically communication and messaging. So, Samsung created a client on the device which sends messages to a dedicated blogging server and from there the message is being routed to the SecondLife world. Users can chat with their “SecondLIfe” friends by using Samsung mobile devices…. quite nice. The thing is, That Comverse done it two years ago without a dedicated client and on top of standard SMS… I don’t say that a client is a bad choice; my point is that creating this type of service using only SMS is much more impressive then a client based service which, in terms of functionality is rather trivial as long as you have SL API’s…
Comverse (innovation labs) continues to invest in SecondLife Telco services but has also created the GDP (gaming delivery platform) which delivers the game to mobile devices, currently iPhone(Safari) and symbian s60 3rd edition. This platform enables you to actually PLAY SecondLife on mobile devices and not only send messages:)
