TeliaSonera working on MMS workaround for iPhone

TeliaSonera MMS for iPhone

Swedish telecom company TeliaSonera is working on an MMS workaround for the iPhone, a company spokesman says. MMS is used on many cellphones to send photos and videos, but despite its commonality as a format, the technology has been left off of the iPhone in favor of e-mail and third-party applications. Some form of MMS is slated to arrive within the next two months, says Telia's Bengt Olsson. It should be incorporated in the form of an application, possibly alongside software easing access to WLAN networks.

Telia's interest is said to lie primarily in attracting more customers, some of whom may make heavy use of MMS, given the widespread availability of 3G in Europe and the popularity of cellphones among Swedes in particular. MMS also supports communication with devices far cheaper than a smartphone, which is the ideal format for receiving iPhone content. Telia sells the iPhone throughout Scandinavia and in other countries such as Latvia and Lithuania.
