China Unicom chooses GyPSii for 3G Mobile Social Networking

GeoSentric Oyj, developers of the award-winning GyPSii mobile social networking application, has announced its partnership with China Unicom’s Shanghai Unicom, to become the premier mobile social network solution for its new consumer 3G SNS Service, UniSpace.

More than 5 million Shanghai Unicom customers are now able to download the GyPSii client directly on to their mobile device from the UniSpace website. This roll out will expand to 130 + million subscribers in China. As part of the GyPSii community, UniSpace members can immediately start to create “geotagged” content for sharing in “real-time” with friends, family and the growing global community of GyPSii members.

GyPSii uses various handset location technologies – including GPS, A-GPS and cell ID – to allow Shanghai Unicom customers to automatically tag their location with photos, video, status updates and other information, for sharing their experiences in real-time.

GyPSii is available for UniSpace customers to use on a wide range of mobile devices, including Java, Symbian and Windows Mobile phones. Further mobile platforms will follow shortly.
