Strands mobile comes to Nokia, BGR has invites

It looks like Strands on the go isn’t just for iPhones anymore. We’ve covered the Strands team’s work before – you know, the guys behind MyStrands Social Player and a variety of recommendation-based services. Strands has not-so-secretly been working on a social networking showcase of its recommendation technology for a while now and not too long ago, access to its closed-beta service went mobile with the announcement of the Strands iPhone app. Strands had been known for some time as being a very Nokia-friendly company so naturally, Nokia users wondered what was up. No worries people, Strands has you covered. The company announced yesterday that it’s site is now available to any and all S60 handsets by way of a shiny new mobile site – you guessed it, m.strands.com. For those unfamiliar with the Strands.com network, it combines messaging features a la Twitter with content aggregation the likes of which you can’t begin to fathom without setting eyes on the laundry list of supported services. Toss some award-winning recommendation technology into the mix, and there you have it. If you’re not already in the closed beta, don’t worry. Just hit the log in page, click the “request an invite” button and enter BGR as your promo code. You’ll be good to go from your computer, iPhone or S60 handset before you know it.
