From InfoSyncWorld Nokia bringing P2P to phones
Nokia researchers have developed a new peer-to-peer (P2P) scheme tailored specifically for mobile phones.
The network differs from traditional Internet P2P services such as Gnutella or Kazaa in that they do not directly link all users on the network. Rather, users are grouped into "clusters", with each member of a given cluster having a complete index of the files being offered by all users in that cluster.
The current version of the P2P application works with pictures and text, ranging from camera phone shots to SMS and MMS messages.
Now throw in NTT DocoMo buying 40% of Tower Records. Do you see the possibilities?
