Compulsive classifieds with Iqzone

Iqzone wants to make it easier to post classified ads on the Internet by letting you use your mobile phone's camera.

Iqzone is a new service announced at Demo 07 that allows you to post classified ads to the Internet using the camera on your cell phone. Users can create text-only postings or add pictures. The entire process is done by sending your photo and item description in a mixed media text message.

Iqzone is free, and all listings end up on the Iqzone's classifieds Web site. I'd like to see Iqzone build in some sort of integration to post to Craigslist and eBay. The service is being promoted as a quick way to sell things, but I can't help but think that no matter how easy it is to post to--it's going to be an uphill battle to get people to start using yet another classifieds site.
