News roundup: FON-BT, NTT Docomo health phone, MySpace-O2, Fox News to VM, Nokia Conversations

October 4, 2007 at 3:37 pm

FON the largest WiFi community in the world has made an agreement with BT. Existing BT wireless users (I am actually one) need to opt in to be part of the BT FON community. Why is this on a mobile blog… well obviously with the number of WiFi enabled devices such as the iPhone (US now and UK next month) and the N95 this will provide more potential access points to connect via. The deal has been in the works for a while, we reported on rumours in Feb this year.

In Japan NTT Docomo has released a health focused phone that amongst other things monitors your pulse and has a pedometer.

MySpace has announced a deal to be packaged with O2 handsets. O2 is the only other carrier in Europe besides Vodafone to have a MySpace mobile centric interface. The service will include free data charges for November and December.

Fox News Radio has announced a mobile radio offering called Fox News Radio Mobile. The service is delivered in partnership with GotVoice and delivers news twice daily to voicemail boxes.

Nokia beta labs has released an application called Conversations. The application groups SMS messages together that are part of the same conversation (much like the iPhone does and like Gmail does for email).
