Telenor Launches Online Backup Facility for Camera Phone Photos­

Cliff Boodoosingh on February 20, 2009
­Telenor Norway has launched a service that offers an online backup service for photos and videos taken with mobile phones - and also to share them with other online social networking websites.

"Photos are perhaps some of the most cherished and personal things we have on our mobile phones and PCs, but unfortunately, many photos remain on our mobile without them being backed up or shared with others. With Online Album from Telenor, photos are safely stored and can be easily shared with friends, family or online social networks," says Svein Henning Kirkeng, Director of Consumer Markets in Telenor in Norway.

Users of Online Album can back up their photos as soon as they have been taken and thereby ensure their photos do not simply stay on their mobile phone. Users can be sure that content will not be lost and that their photos cannot be accessed by unauthorised persons. A survey shows that mobile phone cameras are the most widely used by Norwegians in the age group 18-35. Almost 4/10 choose to take their mobile camera instead of a digital camera when going on holiday.

Users choose whether photos are uploaded automatically or via a confirmation message that appears after a new photo is taken.

Telenor Online Album is available in beta from 23 February and the widespread commercial launch will take place shortly after.

The service is being launched in collaboration with PixSense.
