Mikz - How different is it from httpd4mobile and mymobilesite?
Conveneer, a Swedish mobile startup with offices in Lund, Sweden and Palo Alto, California, closed a $4.5 million venture round, led by the Swedish foundation Industrifonden. Broken Arrow Venture Capital also participated. The company previously raised seed money from the founders and Teknoseed. Conveneer is building a mobile platform called Mikz, which will be able to assign a URL to your mobile phone, making the content on your phone accessible on the Web. In essence, it turns each mobile phone into a Web server. Once your phone has a URL like http://joe.mikz.me, other Web applications and services can ingest the data that is locked in your phone, and also your phone can take advantage of common Web APIs. Mikz can pull information off your phone such as your contacts, GPS coordinates, photos, music, ringtones, and other files. It creates a Web interface for your phone.I haven't gone too deep into how they do it, but I see that httpd4mobile also does something similar. Httpd4mobile is an HTTP mobile server for Java J2ME mobile devices that enables you to access and control various features such as Camera Picture function, Audio Record function, Contact List, SMS Send, File Download, File Upload, etc.
See also mymobilesite that works on Nokia S60 devices, that allows users to create, share and access contacts, calendar appointments, SMS text messages, emails, phone logs, share pictures, etc.
