Well, this had to happen sooner than later…the peak of blogging. On the occasion of 50th anniversary of the conquest of Mount Everest, multiple teams are attempting the conquest once again. Only this time the Chinese team will be recording each and every move through mobile blogging: using SMS and MMS. Chinese internet compay Sohu.com, China Mobile Communications and Motorola have tied up to enable everest blogging, though they have not necessarily characterized it as “blogging”: The Chinese team will have “wireless communication capabilities through GPRS, MMS and SMS during their expedition. China Mobile, the largest mobile operator in China, will set up a mobile telephone system at the Base Station to provide the wireless signal. Motorola, the largest mobile handset manufacturer in China, will contribute 388C multimedia messaging enabled phones. Meanwhile, SOHU will provide the value-added content services for live SMS and MMS broadcasting throughout the expedition and bring exclusive online reporting on the SOHU website.” You decide.
