Nokia relaunches content-sharing service

Share on Ovi enables photo- and video-sharing

Nokia has rebranded Twango, the photo- and video-sharing site aimed at mobile users, as Share on Ovi. The service is based on one developed by Twango, a company Nokia acquired in July last year.

Share on Ovi becomes the first Ovi-branded service, said Camilla Pagliaroli, a Nokia spokeswoman. The service is still in beta but anyone can use it, she said.

Ovi is a Nokia site designed to be a central spot where phone users can visit to access a variety of mobile services. The site already includes Nokia's music download service, available in the UK; Nokia's mapping offerings and N-Gage. Nokia also plans to launch a service there that lets users sync their mobile calendar and contacts information online.

The mobile market is closely watching Nokia's Ovi offerings because the services may compete with those offered by the phone maker's operator customers. They'll also compete with those offered by big names in the computer-based internet world, such as Google and Yahoo. Those companies are increasingly expanding their services for access by mobile customers.
