O2 reinvents the postcard

Mobile phones

Sent any postcards recently? Probably not. Well O2 is hoping to use the camera phone to resurrect the British tradition by offering personalised cards.

Subscribers to the network can now send hard copies of their photos accompanied by a short message simply by sending the image, text and address details via SMS to O2. The network then creates a postcard that’s sent first class to be delivered the next day in the UK no matter where in the world the picture was taken.

Compatible with all O2 cameraphones , the O2 PhotoCards can be sent in over 50 countries. The bad news is that they cost a rather pricey £1.50 per card plus the cost of sending a photo message (usually about 30p).
