Nokia Buys Media Sharing Site Twango

Nokia, which has tried to build its own mobile-oriented Web sites like Lifeblog, has acquired media sharing site Twango with the intention of making it easy for Nokia phone users to upload and access photos, videos and other documents.

Twango is similar to Flickr, but supports a variety of multimedia content types and uses "channel" terminology instead of the photo "sets." Nokia hopes users of its fancy N-Series multimedia phones will use the site as their primary social network. It is unclear if Nokia plans to change Twango's branding, although the company says, "As we grow Twango into a global service we may decide on a name that is more suitable."
