FUJIFILM Corporation is pleased to announce the development of its new online photo service applications at Photokina 2010. The new applications are able to respond to online photo orders from the recently released and extremely popular iPad and mobile devices equipped with the Android operating system.
Since late 2008, mobile device manufacturers in various countries have been incorporating the Android operating system into smart phones and retailing these around the world. The release of the multifunctional iPad in the spring of 2010 has also attracted much global attention. These next-generation devices enable Internet access wherever the user may be, and with their easy-to-use touchpad and interfacing capabilities, these devices have ushered in a whole new lifestyle concept. In response to the new user needs generated by these next-generation communication systems, Fujifilm developed the online ordering application PHOTOGENIE TOUCH for iPhone users, and now offers new online photo ordering applications for iPad and Android. The new applications enable a high-level and diverse range of photo editing functions with easy operability, and users of iPad and Android will be able to enjoy a wide variety of photo services anytime, anywhere.
