Boost IT visibility and business value

Ericsson and Canon have snuggled up to work together on a way of transferring images from digital cameras to mobile devices.

The agreement centres on the development of imaging applications for the current GSM standard, GRPS and the forthcoming 3G. The companies said they would release consumer devices, separately, next year.

Ericsson said that the technology would allow simple fast and reliable transfer of images to wireless devices and other Internet users. The consumer would, it said, be able to easily send images along with text or voice messages.

Bearing in mind the human condition, the potential for embarrassment if the sender accidentally taps in the wrong number is, it must be said, huge. Just think about that one for a minute. ®
