Vipera announces the immediate global availability of its mobile service for smart phones and PDAs. Vipera allows camera enabled mobile phones to transmit picture messages to other phones as well as to any Internet e-mail account, at a fraction of the cost charged by traditional operators for their MMS service.
Vipera still charges for their services. It's also unclear how they handle phones where pictures aren't available to J2ME applications. Additionally, this does not seem like the sort of application that the carriers will be scrambling to try to get on their catalogs.
