Jaiku! Presence Awareness for Breakfast

Just saw on Nicolas’ place that an early beta (what’s the difference between any beta anymore..) Jyri Engestrom and his posse’s Jaiku rich presence application for Series 60 2nd edition devices has been released..very nice. I just downloaded the client to this N70 + T-Mobile I’ve been poking around with and it makes me want to officially switch off of Sprint. For good.

We invented the term ‘rich presence’ to describe the many relevant things a phone knows about you. Rich presence on Jaiku includes an IM-style away line, your phone profile (ring volume, vibrate), location (country, city/region, neigborhood), Bluetooth devices around, upcoming calendar events, and the duration how long your phone has been idle.

You can view your contacts’ rich presence on jaiku.com, and once you have signed up, you can download a free client application for Nokia Series 60 Second Edition phones.

Why do I blog this? Presence awareness is the breakfast cereal of the millennials and Jyri and the like are the new Kellogg’s.
