Vodafone is well-positioned to win a piece of the software market

Wednesday 26 August 2009 | 08:52 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
Vodafone is preparing the launch of Vodafone People, according to recent reports. Vodafone People is a software suite giving users access to a range of communication platforms, including SMS, IM, social networks, Twitter and Google Talk, from a newly developed user interface. The software also enables users to synch these applications in the cloud, making them accessible from the mobile phone, but from a PC or a Mac too. Other capabilities include back-ups and maps. The technology is from Zyb, acquired by Vodafone last year for EUR 31.5 million.
