Shozu, which connects mobile users with various social and media networks, has announced a partnership with MAXroam that will allow users to send multimedia files for much lower cost across 139 countries.
Initially marketed to iPhone users, who can download the ShoZu app for $4.99, the application will also be rolled out across Windows Marketplace, Ovi, and the BlackBerry App World (no Android Marketplace?).
With the app comes a coupon code offering them a $4.99 credit on a MAXroam account.
With the cost of roaming usually pretty exorbitant, in addition to the fact that with ShoZu’s hub meaning you only need to upload rich media files once in order to distribute them across multiple services, it should significantly lower the cost of keeping in touch when away from home. With web-connected smartphones so popular now, it’s cost that’s the major stumbling block to lifecasting while away â€” arguably the time when you’ve most got something interesting to share.
