New Yorkers to get Picture Mail 911 January 20, 2007

Posted by Dan in News, Technology, Video.

Here’s a story thats long overdue. In fact, when countries like Japan have phones that work like wireless ATM cards, its hard to imagine that we’d be on the forefront of a major development in cell phone tech. Yet, New York has a novel idea that is just that. Their 911 emergency services centers will soon be able to receive picture and video messages from caller’s cell phones. The aim: to allow operators to prioritize calls based on footage of the incident.
