As we took a look at some videos on Nokia’s YouTube Channel in relation to their new Windows Phone handsets, we came across this. A video about Nokia Pulse.
It is apparently Nokia’s new revolutionary way to communicate. It marries together texts, calls and GPS location to create Pulse.
Essentially a secure private messaging system, it shares real time information with others in that group, you have created and belong to and nobody else.
Whatever information you share with one everybody in the groups sees it. So you may share a picture, send a message asking a question. Other group members then see the content and can respond.
The killer feature is said to be its interactivity in the GPS locations that are shared that can then be clicked on for driving directions and more. It sounds interesting, but will it really work in an everyday scenario?
In the video they use the example of a family, which helps with the visualisation process of how this works.
A nice touch too is that it is accessible from the web too thus making it easier when at a desk to respond to content and messages that appear in the live stream/group messaging.
It feels as if Nokia have taken BBM and GTalk and thought what can we do to make it different and better.
See it explained and demonstrated in the following video.
