EQO Extends IM & Social Nets to Mobile Phones

October 5, 2006

Readers of this blog know I'm a big fan of EQO, based in Vancouver, BC.

EQO made waves early on due to its innovative service/software that basically Skype-enabled a host of mobile phones so that users of these phones can access their Skype buddy list, and make and receive Skype calls.

Recent news from the folks up North is notable -- EQO has released the latest version of EQO Mobile, a product/service that delivers online communities to mobile phones, enabling users of social networks such as MySpace, Friendster, Tagworld, Hi5, Xanga and Multiply to exchange web-to-phone, phone-to-web and phone-to-phone text and picture messages with their online buddies. In addition, EQO Mobile now enable users to use AOL Instant Messenger, ICQ, MSN Messenger, Yahoo! IM, GoogleTalk, Jabber, as well as Skype on any one of more than 300 mobile handset models from vendors including Nokia, Motorola, Palm, and Sony-Ericsson.

EQO Mobile incorporates rich new community features enabling users to add friends and see what they've posted from their mobile phone. It also allows users to include a call back phone number or IM screen name as part of an EQO message, enabling the recipient to start a conversation using a simple click-to-call or click-to-IM feature.

The new version of EQO Mobile is available for free at
