Saki Mobile Now Fully Accessible from the Web
Consumers now have real-time access to all mobile features directly from popular Microsoft site Live.com.
PLANO, TX – May 19, 2006 – Digital Standard, Inc. today announced that Saki Mobile™ is now fully accessible through Microsoft® Windows Live™ homepage (www.Live.com), one of the most popular search destinations in the world. The new Saki Mobile “gadget” provides unlimited access to all applications and features. Consumers can now change their mobile theme, update their mobile profile, or even add a new friend, from anywhere in the world using a Web browser. This new addition further defines Digital Standard’s commitment to provide truly pervasive access to mobile content, expanding its current usability on phones, PDAs, PCs, browsers and beyond.
“Windows Live is a great example of the programmable Web, allowing users to customize their page with an almost limitless variety of online content.” said Suresh V. Mathews, CEO. “With the addition of our mobile client on Windows Live, subscribers now have a one-stop online experience that combines the best of the Web with the best of mobile.”
Gadgets are a new category of mini-applications designed to provide information, useful lookup, or enhance an application or service on your Windows PC or the Web. With the Saki Mobile gadget, mobile content can go directly from phone to Live.com. The web-based gadget is also a 2-way (over-the-air) communication link, automatically updating in real-time and removing the hassle of repetitive PC-to-device synchronization. Furthermore, the gadget acts as a “backup” in the event of a lost or damaged phone, an additional service charged monthly by many carriers.
The new addition on Windows Live is built upon Digital Standard’s core Saki™ multi-tenant mobile platform technology. Major brands can utilize this same technology with Saki Mobile Services™, extending their reach into the wireless space at a fraction of the cost of a traditional MVNO. The service incorporates many industry-firsts such as personalized Avatar Instant Messaging and customizable mobile desktop Widgets. Also included are a suite of powerful applications such as multiple E-Mail access, photo-enabled RSS, and social networking. The Saki platform successfully combines an unmatched user experience within a rich, graphical user interface.
Pricing and Availability
The Saki Mobile gadget for Windows Live is free and available immediately to subscribers inside the gadget gallery on the official gadgets website, www.MicrosoftGadgets.com.
