The BBC has published a review of four of the top wifi capable media players currently on the market.
The Sony PSP, the Nokia N800, the Archos 605wifi and (of course) the Apple iPod touch.
Gadget lovers are spoilt for choice when it comes to portable media players, with an increasing number offering web access through wi-fi connections. We take a look at four different players – Sony’s PSP Slim, Archos 605wifi, Nokia’s N800 and the Apple iPod touch – and assess their strengths and weaknesses in different categories.
Their winner, well it’s only fair that you check out the article, but it doesn’t surprise me.
Of course this meant I needed both a computer and internet access.
The Nokia N73 does come with an application to upload images to Flickr, however this never worked for me, and I suspect it is because Vodafone (my phone provider) blocks access to Flickr as part of their content control!
So I was interested to see how ShoZu would work out.
Shozu is an application that works on a range of phones and allows you with just one click take an image (or a video) and upload it straight to a Web 2.0 site of your choice.
You give ShoZu your mobile phone number, they send you an SMS text message, you download and install the application on your phone.
Rather than use the phone to configure the destinations (though you can) you can configure your account via a web browser. Which is great if like me you don’t really like to input data and information via a mobile phone number pad.
Configured it all.
So in London for a meeting took a photo at Paddington station and after I had taken the photograph, up popped a dialogue asking me if I wanted to send it to Flickr, so I click okay.
The image is automatically uploaded to Flickr and then into my other online sites which Flickr feeds into such as Jaiku and the VLE.
You can also add the images to your blogs (as seen here).
Works really easily and simply.
