You're at home, driving, at the park, office, party, club meeting, conference, wedding (oops), running, and anywhere else you happen to hang out. Your friend, family or business colleague tells you the latest gossip on any of your favorite topics: politics, fashion, movies, music, sports, local, global, technology and more. The first thing you want to know; is it true? Second, where can I find out more information?
What equipment do you usually have with you? An Ipod, your flash drive, your laptop (sometimes with zero or flaky WIFI available) or no PC/laptop at all, your watch, GPS, and your cell phone. Just about everyone all ages and all levels of socio-economic status carries a cell phone.
Radio stations, television stations, and newspapers are realizing that everyone carries a cell phone. So, what better way to get out the news? Infonumber.net is signing up these media like crazy for their own news by phone.
A few examples of media who are signing up are a global music magazine, GeoNews, an online news source, the "CNN" of an international country meaning the most popular news source in that country, a social networking website, and several tv and radio, both traditional and web 2.0 type stations and channels.
The most recent is sharing up-to-date information with cell phone users all over the world regarding the Pakistani elections which will take place this coming weekend. I've done something kind of fun, emailed several people around the world who are Pakistani and some who are not, to ask them who their favorite Pakistani leaders are and who do they want to win the election. They each love the news by phone that Infonumber.net is making available to their favorite news sources. I'll add their comments as I receive them. Others I have asked their opinion may add their comment here at the end of my blog post. A website that gives some information about Pakistani Leaders is at http://www.pakistanileaders.com.pk/.
