Posted in T-Mobile Web'n'Walk Zinadoo Trial, Zinadoo Trials on July 16, 2007 by nubiq

Welcome and thanks to everyone for joining our T-Mobile Web’n’Walk Zinadoo trial! 

As many of you know by now; this trial is open to all people in the Netherlands and the service is completely free for the two month duration of the trial. 

Your feedback throughout this trial is really important to Zinadoo and T-Mobile’s shared commitment to improve and grow the Zinadoo service. So we are using this blog as a forum to gather your feedback and get some discussion going on the Zinadoo service. So please feel free to post comments and reviews! Also; we would appreciate it if you could take a few minutes out to complete our pre-trial questionnaire.  

To get you started we thought we’d give you an overview of some of the things you can do on Zinadoo: 

  1. Create your mobile website and design it to your own personal tastes with different fonts, colours, images etc.
  2. Add interactive features to your mobile website! Add a page where your friends easily post messages to your mobile website, create a page that your friends can email you from, have your mobile site visitors call you from the site at the click of a button, and lots more!
  3. When you are happy with your mobile website publish it and add relevant keywords; so that your site can be found in the mobisphere.
  4. Share your site by text with all your friends. Send a “Text Invite” from Zinadoo to all your friends so that they can visit your mobile website at the click of button.
  5. Check out other mobile websites by going to http://zinadoo.mobi on your mobile phone.

T-Mobile Web’n’Walk Zinadoo Trial

Posted in T-Mobile Web'n'Walk Zinadoo Trial, Zinadoo Trials on July 6, 2007 by nubiq

Nubiq have partnered with T-Mobile, the Netherlands to run a trial of the Zinadoo service in conjunction with their Web’n’Walk service. The focus of this trial is to work with T-Mobile and you, our trial participants to improve and grow the Zinadoo service. 

Nubiq, the company responsible for Zinadoo, is working towards making mobile Internet services mainstream by enabling everyone to have a mobile Internet presence. According to a recent study, 17% of the US and U.K. markets browsed the mobile Internet in January of this year. That is a positive growth in mobile Internet usage, but worldwide the market continues to be hindered by a number of different factors: 

  1. Slow download speeds.
  2. High download costs.
  3. Difficult mobile site navigation issuing from both poor handsets and mobile website design.

The challenge for everyone in the mobile Internet value chain is to break down these barriers to entry. In turn it is also essential to reverse the negative stigma surrounding the mobile Internet and educate consumers that the mobile Internet IS easy, user friendly, functional and won’t cost the earth! 

For Nubiq, we are working with like minded organisations such as T-Mobile, who are also working towards overcoming these issues and promoting mass mobile Internet usage. With services such as “Web’n’Walk”, T-Mobile have had the foresight to offer their customers the real Internet on their mobile handset for flat rate data fees.  

With such close alignments it is an obvious choice for Nubiq to partner with T-Mobile, the Netherlands. Starting on the 16th of July, Nubiq’s mobile website creation tool Zinadoo, will be offered to not only Web’n’Walk subscribers but all mobile subscribers in the Netherlands, completely free of charge. Participants will also get the opportunity to use the many text and sharing features on the Zinadoo service. The objective here is to establish what mobile Internet services consumers really want and in turn to help to grow and improve the Zinadoo service.

Now it looks like the era for the mobile Internet is upon us. As Nubiq continues to grow and improve services we see the partnerships with like minded organisations in this mobile Internet eco-system vital to the continued growth of the industry and our company.  

As the trial gains traction we are looking forward to hearing any feedback on the service that you have. So please feel free to use this forum as a means to interact and share ideas with us and other trial participants!
