PokenZoo.com sells Pokens, the new USB social business card, in the United States.
Pokens are small USB devices that allow a user to share personal information like name, address, phone, fax and email with other Poken users.
Created by the Swiss company Poken SA, Pokens are extremely popular in Europe and Japan, and began sales in the US in April of 2009.
Poken solves one simple problem: how do I remember the email addresses and screen names of everyone I meet? When a user meets other Poken owners in the real world, they quickly swap information. No more writing down email addresses or long blog names. Just touch Pokens and connect.
The “digital business card” also shares screen names and profile IDs from a variety of social networking services like MySpace, FaceBook, Skype, LinkedIn and others.
How a Poken Works
Open an account at http://www.doyoupoken.com and set up your account. Load your social networking profiles, design your “ID Card”.
Poken users can touch Pokens, and look for the green light as they share Facebook, Twitter and other social network profiles.
Users then simply plug the Poken into their computer’s USB port, and download the data.
Models and Variety
Pokens come in a variety of shapes and models. As of October 2009, the ones most readily available in the U.S. were the brand new Business Poken “Pulse”, the Panda Poken, the Alien Poken, the Ninja Poken, the Geisha Poken, the RapStar Poken, the Caveman Poken, the Rockstar Poken, the VooDoo Poken, the Mad-K Poken, the Poken Ghost, the Poken Bee, the Poken Tigress, the Poken Tiger, the Franky Poken, the Poken Pink Alien, the Poken Fox, the Poken Dragon, the Poken Baby, and the Vampire Poken.
The brand new Poken Pulse was introduced in September 2009 in response to requests from corporate customers for a Poken that looked more professional. The Pulse sports a 2GB USB stick in a conservative black style, complete with the integrated Poken sharing technology.
