Social Networking Site Offers Mobile Access Via E-mail

Social networking site Multiply has added the ability for its 3 million users to update the site from mobile phones, through the almost ubiquitous method of e-mail. “Users can now post photos, videos, audio, and links to their personal blog or profile from any email-enabled device, including mobile phones, blackberries, as well as laptops.” It’s a fairly good idea in that they don’t have to configure an app for each mobile handset, but the flip side is that e-mail can be difficult to use on a lot of mobile phones. Obviously I’m not talking about Blackberry’s or high-end business handsets, but there’s a lot of mid-range phones that have e-mail capabilities which aren’t easy to use, at least from what I’ve seen.
