LAS VEGAS -- Samsung Electronics today unveiled several innovative wireless solutions at CTIA Wireless 2008. Samsung will have demonstrations of the revolutionary 3D virtual world of Second Life® on Samsung mobile handsets, the LifeDiary and Softboard applications, as well as in-home wireless synchronization solutions available in the Samsung booth.

The latest in a series of tools designed to enrich the Second Life Grid®, the platform behind the popular 3D virtual world created by Linden Lab®, Samsung brings the Second Life virtual world to Samsung mobile phones. With the Second Life client available on Samsung’s mobile handsets, users can enjoy many services from the Second Life virtual world whenever and wherever. Unique features of the Second Life client on Samsung’s mobile handsets include a mixed blogging platform that allows users to post their blog simultaneously in the real world and the virtual world of Second Life, and the Samsung Mixed Contact feature which allows users to have mixed world contact by communicating with avatar friends via voice or SMS. The Second Life client on Samsung’s mobile handsets is compatible with Windows Mobile devices. Samsung developed its mobile application for the Second Life world based on the open source client from Linden Lab and has plans to allow mobile handsets in the U.S. to access the Second Life world before the end of the year.

LifeDiary, developed by Samsung, allows users to compose a personal diary, which manages the user’s photos and videos taken that day, the calls made, SMS messages sent, contacts and any specific appointments throughout the day. This advanced mobile solution is compatible with Symbian and Windows Mobile phones and works with a PC application and a website that helps synchronize and organize the user’s information and content created on the mobile phone. The application also allows users to create a personal blog that can be controlled over the mobile phone. The LifeDiary solution is an intuitive wireless solution that allows users to create and manage their own online content via their mobile phone.

In addition to LifeDiary, Samsung will demonstrate its Softboard application. The Softboard application allows users to create a variety of contents, including games, photo albums, greeting cards, interactive messages and much more on a PC and send them to the mobile phones of friends and family.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
