RALEIGH, N.C. — Oasys Mobile
is expanding its content and services offerings to build what it calls a "mobile community" for wireless users.
Oasys, which changed its name recently from Summus, is launching a blog geared to teens and young adults called Omobb. The community features "Get Stuff" where users can rate and recommend content; "Share Stuff" for creation of blogs; and "My Stuff" for online profiles, photos and other information. Users can create profiles, post photographs and make comments from their mobile phone or computer.
The blog was launched at the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association (CTIA) tradeshow in Las Vegas. It augments the "locker" feature recently launched by Oasys where users can buy, own and store mobile content such as games, ringtones and wallpaper.
