Slam is stated to be an exclusive service that enables fast content sharing on mobile devices.
The Nokia Asha 205 and Nokia 206 are the new devices to include Nokia’s exclusive Slam feature. It allows consumers to share multimedia content like photos and videos with nearby friends almost instantly.
Introduced Monday, Nov. 26, Slam works with most Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones without the need to pair devices, and without the recipient needing to also have Slam. In just a few clicks, people can ‘Slam’ their content to another device faster than with Bluetooth alone and without consuming Internet data, says Nokia.
“The latest Nokia devices give super-social consumers new ways to express their personalities through design, color and innovative new features like Slam,” explains Timo Toikkanen, executive VP, Mobile Phones, Nokia.
According to the company, the new devices take advantage of the Nokia Xpress Internet platform, which uses Nokia’s cloud technology to reduce data consumption by up to 90%, helping consumers enjoy more affordable Internet access.
They also feature Nokia Nearby, a web app that helps consumers discover points of interest such as restaurants, shopping and ATM machines close to their location.
Currently, ‘Slam’ is not compatible with iOS and Windows Phone devices.
