Smartphones on The Real World

In case you haven’t been keeping up with Real World news, one of the changes this season is the inclusion of smartphones for the cast. While I’m sure this will be a way for the selected phone brand to shamelessly promote itself throughout the season, the inclusion of smartphones holds other implications.

All content taken using the smartphone is posted to a closed network that can only be viewed by other cast members, family and friends, and of course productions.

For the viewers, this means we’ll be getting exclusive content online. MTV.com has already started to roll out some of the content online (click here for the three videos that have been posted)

As the season progresses it seems likely that we will receive more videos and pictures from the cast.
