One of the more eyecatching mobile applications on show at Nokia World today is called Mobile Secretary, from Chinese firm InterGrafx. It’s basically a 3D avatar that acts as your virtual secretary, residing on your phone.
“It’s very fun,” says InterGrafx’s Charles Chiang. “Your secretary handles things like SMS and incoming calls. You can choose different types of secretary from our server side, you can fire them and download a new one, or train them to be smarter. And you can even take a photo of someone, and put their picture on the avatar.”
Mobile Secretary is available now in China, but Chiang says he’s trying to drum up interest in Europe in the app too – hence his attendance at Nokia World. It’s got that certain something that could make it a mobile hit – perhaps someone like Jamster will pick it up for Europe…
