Jaiku lets users compose posts to their profile, search and add friends and comment on other user's messages. That can all be done using a computer. But it seems that the future of Jaiku is the mobile phone. Currently a Jaiku software package can only be downloaded to a Nokia S60 phone, but hopefully soon it will be compatible with more models and types of phones. In addition, Jaiku posts can be sent as read as text message, emails and instant messages.
