Social Media Mobile Phone – Brainstorm

Update: it looks like Dave Winer is experimenting with exactly this sort of thing with the N800, this will be very interesting.

[note: when I say blogging, I don't mean primarily text, i'm including photos, audio podcasting and video blogging in the mix. i'm trying to get at the value of mobility, video, audio, pictures, and a bit of text]

With the Samsung announcement of a 3G mobile phone targeted at bloggers

Samsung Electronics will launch in Europe this month its Mobile Blog 3G Phone (SGH-L760), which allows users to upload content directly to blog sites on the Internet such as YouTbe, UBlog and Buzzet. Digital Chosunilbo reports.

“The mobile blog function’s speedy data transmission will distinguish the phone from other handsets. The phone will debut in Germany and Spain this month and next hit the Southeast Asian market.”

I was just thinking, what would I really like in a boggers/podcasters phone? Here’s a few features that spring to mind:

  • Posting photo’s as a blog entry – Already doable using flickr MMS, would like to automatically add tags to the blog post, put it in a certain category, would like to include multiple pictures in one post (currently flickr system does one pic per post
  • Stereo audio recording – I don’t think i’ve found a phone yet that has different settings for recording audio. For me I would like to easily select my recording options depending if i’m interviewing someone or recording music. Being able to plug in external mics would also be amazing (should be able to record audio stand alone, or with video)
  • background audio and video uploading to selected services over most appropriate connection. I have wifi on a few of my phones, I would love it if I could tag certain recordings to be uploaded to specific services when I come in proximity of previously defined wifi locations.
  • Also different content should be uploaded to different services, for instance I might want a video to got to youtube,, and dailymotion at the same time; podcasts should get posted to my blog, or what ever service i’m hosting them on. Ideally this should happen on the server side, that way I upload once and it is automatically distributed from the server
  • Podcast editing – not sure how this would play out, but basic cropping and joining of audio and video files would totally rawk

If your are a blogger and a podcaster what features would you like to see in your phone?

Quick plug for Shozu which already does some of the things i’m talking about around uploaded content to different services.


LOL, David Armano has just designed his own phone and posted it on his blog, it’s called the MyPhone :-)

Jeremiah pointed to this post on Dave Winers scripting news on the features that should be on an “open podcast player”

Open podcast device ideas Permanent link to this item in the archive.

I’m at the mobile identity workshop today, and I led a discussion this morning about features that people want for an open podcast player device. The rules were anyone could blurt out any feature they wanted and I put them all on the list. (I’m not endorsing these ideas, or explaining them.)

open platform
auto-tagging/voice tagging
TiVO features/last ten seconds
voting mechanism
popup menu for categorization
no buttons
text input
video input
not modal
lots of dials
real volume control
multiple people
one-click publishing

Love the one “lots of dials” hysterical :-)

    You may find this interesting, it’s the results from a brainstorm at Doc Searls mobile ID workshop

    Candidly, I’m just not that interested in the cellphone as a blogging device. If I’m going to blog on the move, I’d rather use my laptop. I’m also not one to do the quick, from the hip, blog posts (I do that when I leave comments on other people’s blogs). Writing my posts on the go just isn’t practical for me. Additional, I’m aesthetically detail oriented, and I don’t think a mobile device could give me the kind of control I would demand over the visual presentation of the post.

    Small plugin-style editors for the different platforms — Typepad, Blogger, WordPress etc. Integrated camera options — send to blog (similar in the way that Flickr works).
    These would make life easier.

    Hey Chris, I totally agree that full text blogging from the majority of mobile devices is not going to come close to the laptop experience. What I was trying to get at was what photo blogging, video blogging, podcasting, and a bit of text :-) Now I may be banging on about this because I’m a big fan of podcasting and video, but I find it very time consuming and hate the fact that i’m tied to my laptop for all the production. If I could do some of the production on my phone, collecting clips, etc. I think my workflow for photos, audio, and video could be a a lot better. Thanks for your note, it really made me think about it more.

    Amen, I have said ALL along that the biggest barrier to the growth of podcasting, is the creation process. It’s just too damned complicated, and time consuming. I loved creating the few episodes I have so far of Mind The Gap, but it still takes me a couple of days to create an episode. I just don’t have time for that. Any device that comes along that can make this process easier, and is promoted as a device that makes the process easier, is going to sell.

    On a semi-related note, are any phones marketing their ability to easily create videos that can be uploaded to YouTube? I think that’s another chance for growth.

    Errrrr besides the one you are blogging about here?

    Well LG has got a deal with YouTube:

    “For the first time, LG customers will be able to film, upload and view videos on YouTube using their mobile phone just as they would be able to from their home computer,”

    But also provides all those tools for any device that can run the app. They have a native version for Nokia devices, where you can preprogram it to send certain content to certain outlets, including blogs, flickr, youtube etc.

    I think Nokia or any other company has a real opportunity to create a phone that truly works for participants in social media. My dream phone which does not seem to exist at the moment would look something like this:

    Real typepad comparable to that of a Sidekick–perfect for fast, rapid typing perfect for blogging, twitter, surfing etc.

    A multi directional trackball and user friendly UI (or maybe touchscreen, typepad combo)

    A 3 megapixel camera that takes decent pictures indoors

    A video recorder with zoom

    Wifi and a decent web browser that works with javascript and css and some ajax

    Media playback of mp3 etc.

    A decent sized bright and clear display

    Chat software that works with most chat formats

    Quality speakerphone

    One things that is keeping me away (just barely) from an iPhone is the lack of a typepad. This stupid sidekick has spoiled me. However, if I don’t see an alternative in the next six months or so, I’ll cave in and buy an iPhone. Unless you have another suggestion for me?

    Hope this helps.

    I blog all the time from events & conferences using my Nokia 9500. The keyboard is a perfect size for blogging, at least for me, but I miss spellcheck! Yea, I know everyone thinks it’s huge, but it’s a lot easier to blog on a moments notice using that phone then having to take my laptop out. I’ve seen the new E90 (and yes, would happily grovel to be a user-tester for that phone!) and think that it probably comes closer to the size that would more “carry” friendly then the 9500 is. But it’s still not easy to do multi-media postings yet, or maybe I just don’t know how to do it. And, since I use TypePad, it would sure be nice to have the Typepad QuickPost function available on a mobile device. I do have the iPhone, but I find I still do all of my writing on my 9500!

    All due respect, that list of features reminds me of the design process for the Homer Simpson car (I’m looking for the Tom Landry hat now). A feature list like that would require Jonathan Ives to design it, and even he might not be up to the challenge.

    But the reality is that for the amount of time it would take to do much of the stuff you mention on the phone, you could open your laptop, do it, upload it, check your mail, update your feed reader and comment on some Flickr photos.

    Maybe I just don’t have the same usage pattern as you do for my content creation, so maybe I just don’t get the need.
