Samsung and GyPSii team up for new location-based and social networking services on handsets
To take advantage of the built-in GPS and navigational systems on Samsung’s upcoming new mobiles, GyPSii will offer their mobility digital lifestyle applications as part of a new worldwide non-exclusive agreement with the handset manufacturer.
In accordance to the new agreement, Samsung will include GyPSii’s leading mobility digital lifestyle app with the Samsung Omnia i900 and the Windows Mobile-powered Samsung SGH-i780. This is Samsung’s take on location-based services and social networking for their mobile phones.
The GyPSii suite will rely on user-generated content to drive traffic, and will be pre-bundled with all new Samsung handsets with GPS capabilities.
At the moment, GyPSii already works on most Symbian, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry smartphones, and even the iPhone, so if you want to do an advance beta testing, you may do so by going to www.gypsii.com (on your computer) or via your phone at www.gypsii.com/m.
