Bluetooth liaisons with Nokia's Sensor

Talking of social software, you might remember this story from the Sydney Morning Herald's Column 8 about a brief laptop-to-laptop liaison on a commuter train. Well, Nokia, the company that brought us life caching with its LifeBlog service, now brings us Sensor.

Nokia describe Sensor as a "spontaneous, sociable application for spontaneous, sociable people". What it actually does is use Bluetooth to allow one Sensor user to 'sense' other Sensor users within a 10m radius of their phone. Each Sensor user creates a personal profile page that is accessible to other Sensor users in range. You can also exchange messages, and share files.
