Nextel is offering the application, called PhotoShare, as a download on its Web-site. The application was developed by Summus, Inc.

Fujifilm has also provided Nextel with its Get the Picture photo services for use on the Nextel site, including the ability to album, e-mail and order prints from digital photos for pick-up at local retail stores. Users can access the Web-site’s photo features through eligible Nextel phones.
