Blackberry and similar such services along with high end mobile gadget in market mostly targeting these internet geeks.

In the past few years we have seen increasing use of mobile gadgets for social networking than PC’s.

These services really help people to stay in touch with subject who matters to them and luxury to stay mobile with least interruption.

Through this article I am just trying to list down various services and features in high end gadgets which makes socializing a fun to be with.

  • BlackBerry Internet Service

The primary alternative to using BlackBerry Enterprise Server is to use the BlackBerry Internet Service. It was developed primarily for the average consumer rather than for the business consumer. This service allows POP3 and IMAP email integration for the personal user. It allows up to 10 email accounts to be accessed, including many popular email accounts such as Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo and AOL. There are also special bundles for just MySpace, Facebook, & MSN as well.

A less common alternate to using BlackBerry Enterprise Server is to use the BlackBerry Desktop Redirector. This software is installed on a desktop computer that has the Enterprise email client installed

  • Nokia

Nokia is promoting the social networking and sharing features of the compact phone, noting that Facebook and MySpace status updates and favorite contacts are easily visible on the handset’s phonebook. “The new Cseries represents the core of Nokia’s portfolio, focusing on social interaction between friends and family,” the company said in announcing the phone.

  • Sony Ericsson

Loaded with  Social network tool (Windows Live™ Messenger, Facebook™)

  • Android Powered Mobiles

Powered with Unique and powerfull application like NavEx (Navigation Exchange Service ) and Commandro
