Nokia works on peer-to-peer for mobile

Nokia is currently experimenting with exchanging files on the mobile phone. This should make it easier to exchange ringtones and wallpapers, but soon also music and movies. That this is not happening is probably because Nokia does not want to harass the music and film industry. The exchange of files via programs such as Bittorent and Kazaa is still gaining popularity on the internet

Nokia is currently experimenting with exchanging files on the mobile phone. This should make it easier to exchange ringtones and wallpapers, but soon also music and movies. That this is not happening is probably because Nokia does not want to harass the music and film industry.

The exchange of files via programs such as Bittorent and Kazaa is still gaining popularity on the internet. Through such programs it is easy for users to exchange music and films with each other.
Nokia wants to capitalize on that popularity by also offering peer to peer programs on the mobile telegone. For the time being, only photos and videos can be exchanged, but the exchange of MP3s and ringtones must also be possible.
At the moment, according to The New Scientist, peer-to-peer applications are being looked at by Lorant Farkas and his colleagues from Nokia at the Nokia Research Center in Budapest. For the time being, the tests are only performed on the Nokia 6600 devices.
Together with researchers from the University of Budapest of Technology and Economics, the Nokia researchers have used a mobile network simulator that can simulate different ways of exchanging files (file sharing). By having done so, they ultimately think they have found the most suitable form of file exchange, according to The New Scientist.
