Nokia acquires media sharing site "Twango" Nokia, the mobile phone giant, has purchased the media sharing site Twango in an effort to create a mobile-oriented site such as that at Lifeblog.
The acquisition will make it much easier for Nokia owners to potentially upload their photos, videos and other documents.

For those unfamiliar, Twango is very similar to Flickr but instead supports more multimedia components as well as using "channel" terminology instead of the usual photo "sets".

Nokia also expressed hope that N-Series users will use the site as a social network as well as a media sharing site. The name Twango however, may be on the way out. "As we grow Twango into a global service we may decide on a name that is more suitable," says the company.
