Get your Second Life live on your cellphone

Brian White

Are you sneaking away from work early to get your "Second Life" with it in the virtual space? Well, millions do that every day, so it seems strangely natural for someone or something to port the Second Life virtual environment to a mobile somehow. It's been done -- and as a J2ME application that should work on almost any java-enabled cellphone. Killer features here, according to Comverse Technology which created the app, are integrated SMS and instant messaging -- and even streaming of mobile video directly inside the Second Life mobile app. But if that data connection drops out, expect your avatar to wilt over and wait for that nifty EV-DO or HSDPA connection to return in full force.
