Globe PixLink: Mobile Photo & Video Sharing
Globe Telecom will officially launch their new web2.0-ish service tomorrow, called PixLink — a service that allows users to upload photos/videos and share it online.
PixLink can be used in different ways:
- Allows you to upload pictures from your phone and upload it to PixLink and then republishes them on other photo-sharing sites like Flickr and Picasa Web as well as social networking sites like Facebook and Friendster. You can do the same with videos too (which is automatically republished to YouTube).
- PixLink can also be an online backup site where you can store unlimited number of photos and videos for free.
- Share photos/videos with friends who are on PixLink. All uploaded files can be automatically synched with other mobile phones on your friend’s list.
To download the PixLink mobile app to your phone, just text “PIXLINK” to 2988 or you can register online here.
The service is still in beta stage and is free to use until March 5, 2009 (when they decide the final price for the time-based subscription). The web component will always be free but the mobile part will have some sort of time-based subscription (similar to UnliTxt) instead of standard 3G rates.
