The mobile media war continues with Zannel

I am finding most of the audiences I’ve spoken to lately have never seen Kyte.tv. Many have never seen Twitter. Or even know they can upload photos to Flickr from their cell phones.

But someday they will.

Zannel is another company that’s trying to make cell phone media easier. Here’s Zannel’s CEO and CTO to show us Zannel.

Why is this important? Well, how many cell phones will sell in the next year? Now let’s say that even 1% signup for Zannel. That could be a pretty sizeable audience.

Either way, these guys give us their view of the cell industry and where it’s going.

I know mobile phone stuff is important because of you. I got more email off of my Fast Company column about cell phone services than any of the other columns I’ve written for Fast Company. Thanks!

  1. Great, great, great! I’ve actually thought of a similiar idea and wondered how long it would take somebody to put this together.
    My 2 cents, these guys should sell to Twitter or somebody as soon as they can. As a brand they seem very susceptible to being overtaken when you get into the brand/positiong area and given there’ll be a lot of competition on this (very soon?) they ought to get moving. Be a great way for Twitter to protect their market position; unless, they fail to see themselves in the Mobile “Expression” business which is agnostic to the medium.

    Robert, are you getting away from kyte.tv? See less videos from them.

  3. That was actually a good, informative video (no offense, Scoble, but they’re not always like that). These guys seem nice and smart but the truth is, mobile media is not going to take off the way they want. Think of how few people even use Twitter which is arguably the biggest of these services. I think companies need to consider what people are using their phones for, not what companies want people to use their phones for.
