Preloaded Photobucket Mobile Application Features New Auto Video Upload Functionality
Denver, CO – October 14, 2010 – Photobucket Corporation, the world’s leading dedicated photo and video sharing service, has worked with T-Mobile USA, Inc. to debut automatic video upload functionality in the pre-installed Photobucket Mobile Application on the T-Mobile® G2™ with Google™, the successor to the groundbreaking T-Mobile G1®, the world’s first Android phone. The G2 is the first smartphone specifically designed for T-Mobile’s new HSPA+ network and features an HD video camera for recording crystal-clear, 720p high-definition videos and a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and autofocus.
In addition to the standard photo, video, and album sharing features available with Photobucket Mobile, T-Mobile G2 users will benefit from a new automatic video upload feature, which allows them to automatically upload and backup videos to their Photobucket account for sharing – fast. Videos can be set to automatically upload to Photobucket as a background operation over T-Mobile’s Network after a user takes a video with the G2. While the video is uploading to Photobucket, G2 users can continue to utilize other functions on the smartphone.
“The automatic video upload feature on the G2 ensures that users can easily and effortlessly copy their video from their phone to the Photobucket cloud,” said Tom Munro, President at Photobucket Corporation. “Once uploaded, users can post their videos to websites and blogs and share via email, IM, Facebook, or Twitter.”
Over 4 million images are uploaded to Photobucket.com every day. With a repository of over 7 billion images, Photobucket users can search, browse, download, and share photos and videos. To create a free Photobucket account, users should visit http://photobucket.com or sign-up via the Photobucket Mobile Application.
