Telia opens a new marketplace for mobile services

Telia opens a new marketplace for mobile services Telia today opens a new marketplace for mobile services - PocketMode. With an open interface that makes it easy for content providers to hook up services, the effort will speed up the development of the mobile Internet. "This is a natural step for us, and together with content providers we will make PocketMode Sweden's largest marketplace for mobile services. The open interface means that content providers have a direct channel to our three million mobile customers," says Kenneth Karlberg, President of Telia Mobile. For example, today there are already around 400 different icons, 350 ring tones, games, news and postcards at www.pocketmode.com. As more and more content providers become involved, it is expected that the number of services will increase dramatically. Telia has invested in the creation of a simple, functional website. For example, it only takes a few clicks to buy an icon or a ring tone. PocketMode has been designed so that it can be changed all the time to suit users' preferences. PocketMode also allows easy billing through Telia's mobile phone invoices or prepaid cards.
