Missed this item from DEMOfall a few weeks ago: Canadian company ComVu is offering free webcasting services for mobile phones running Windows Mobile 5. The software includes some sweet features such as tags support, geo-positioning data to allow viewers to locate transmission point on map, automatic video-blog functionality, and instant group notification via SMS, IM or email. The company is banking on video as the logical evolution of the phonecam newsgathering trend.

"CNN is already promoting its citizen reported media; it's only a matter of time before all newspapers and broadcasters will seamlessly tap into the 'on the spot' video feeds streamed live from camera phone users-this is exactly the capability ComVu enables."
