BuZZone for Pocket PC
There is a widespread opinion that the more time people spend with their computers, the less interested they become in other people and contacts with them. In fact, it is a mere stereotype. As a proof of this, there appeared a system, which makes it possible to considerably multiply the circle of non-virtual acquaintance.

Exion Systems released a Bluetooth-based system for wireless communication. Any owner of a PDA or a laptop, which is equipped with a Bluetooth transmitter can use the system and search for other users in the range of 10-50 meters. They can browse the person's profile (name, photo, etc.) and exchange text or voice messages with him/her. The system can be used on conferences, in cafes, planes, buses, and any other place with many people. Meanwhile, the devices may not necessarily be in direct view. Moreover, you need no cables or any other additional devices. The only thing you need is a mobile device with the Bluetooth and BuZZone systems set on it.

As far as technical characteristics are concerned, they allow very different groups of customers to use the system, as it supports the most widespread operating systems used in laptops, namely Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, as well as the most popular PDA operating systems like Windows CE and Windows Mobile. The work with Bluetooth is based on the WIDCOMM software. This software is used for most PDA's with built-in Bluetooth transmitters, as well as for USB, CF Card and PCMCIA Bluetooth modules.

Current version of the BuZZone product illustrates the "Searching for Friends" scenario. The following functions are included:

  • Filling in the personal profile including a photo and a voice greeting
  • Filling in the search profile
  • Controlling the access for getting acquainted
  • Search by matching profiles
  • Procedure of getting acquainted: acquaintance request, browsing remote profile, accepting or rejecting acquaintance
  • Text chat
  • Audio message exchange
  • Communication with unlimited number of users
