Well, it seems Nokia is always doing something last, but since they have the hardware and a massive market, looks like their Sensor application might just move "toothing" (P2P Proximity Social Interaction) into the mainstream. Unfortunately, they don't have the app for my N-Gage or 7650 so I can test it ... which doesn't make munch sense (maybe they're trying to drive new phones?), but IMO this is the kinda application that can really change how people interact. Just the otherday, some 13 year old girl was bluejacking everybody on a tram in Prague (I of course accepted the incoming .jpg ... it was the X-ray of Homer Simpson's brain) ... normally I'm the one doing it to everybody else, but this time I got it... seems like this sorta thing could become fun with such an application ....
Of course, I have already written about these apps before ... MobiLuck, CrowdSurfer, ProxiDating, and even my own (started, but not finished) P2P Proximity applications have been around for a while, but seems Nokia just might have the power to make it mainstream. Looks like we'll find out ... now if I can only get it working on my 7650 (Yeah, I know, I'm old school ... but Nokia (here comes the catch) doesn't make a S-E P900 client ... guess I gotta test it some otherway.
