Nokia Gets Social With Photo-sharer Twango

In a bid to add more multimedia services for its mobile phones, Nokia (Quote) today agreed to buy photo-sharing specialist Twango for an undisclosed sum.

Twango, founded by a handful of former Microsoft (Quote) veterans and based in the Redmond suburb the software giant made famous, makes software that lets consumers organize and share photos, videos and audio clips through mobile devices and computers.

The company's service, which supports 110 file types, is similar to Yahoo's (Quote) Flickr property or Google's (Quote) YouTube, but operates on a much smaller scale.
