Google’s Photovine Service Kicking Off Later This Month (Video)

Google has announced that they will be “soft launching” their new Photovine service by the end of the month which is a sort of social network for pics.  Unlike its competition, Flickr, this service will allow you to create vines by uploading photos to share and watching others add to them with relevant and funny photos of their own.  Check out the trailer below of how it works.  One thing I noticed however, is in the commercial they’re touting the mobile portion of the service on an iPhone.  One hopes and ASSumes that Google will not launch the service without at least having an Android application ready.  However, they’ve been known to do it before.  Only time will tell so stay tuned.  Hit the source link to sign up and receive an invite.  Don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    “in the commercial they’re touting the mobile portion of the service on an iPhone”

    Probably because it’s from Slide, which appears to be somewhat autonomous from the rest of Google.
