    Vodafone unveils 360 service

    Vodafone unveiled its new 360 service yesterday in Dublin, with the help of chief executive Charles Butterworth and Dita von Teese.

    Personally, I was disappointed that DvT didn’t explain the finer points of the service. But moving along.

    The service integrates social networks, content sharing and messaging applications into one platform, which you can either download to your existing hadset (provided it is compatible) or you get on a customised Sasmsung handset.

    It stores contacts from the phone, social networks and other applications in one place, so you can use Facebook, Windows Live Messenger and Google Talk all from the one app. It synchronises wirelessly all the time, so if you have an IM conversation with a friend on your PC, you will be able to continue the conversation through your phone should you need to leave the house or office. And contacts, updates, e-mails, photos, and settings changes are kept current between both devices. Plus you get some good extras like a 3D address book.

    Customers can also share their locations, tag and share images and get current status updates from social networking sites.

    No ideas on cost yet, but I was told pricing would be pitched at the lower end of the scale.Newspaper story here
