There’s an interesting discussion taking place in the comments to this post on using the mobile for uploading photos on the web.
Almost on cue, Alootechie reports that ibibo, the site run by Naspers owned MIH India has launched several new features among which is a mobile feature that allows users to upload photos and blog using the mobile.
They’re also allowing users to blog in local languages including Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu, though the tags and categories for posts remain in English…why? Other features include an answers solution called ibibo sawaal, wherein users will be paid for asking and answering questions. ibibo is also searching for ideas: they’ve got ibibo labs, much like Google labs, where they showcase products in the works. ibibo is preparing what seems to be a digg clone called newscola, with was acquired alongwith Bixee and Pixrat when RHR Networks Ltd was acquired by MIH India. Of course, we’d been told about some of these products by Arunava Sinha, Content Head at MIH India. When is the big ticket acquisition taking place?
