Combining the best of both worlds — MMS snapshots printed on real, paper postcards that are sent to recipients by regular mail

Will snail mail survive after all? T-Mobile in Germany now lets users of its camera-enabled cell phones turn their holiday pictures into real, paper and text-on-the-back postcards. The customer simply emails a picture (MMS) from their phone to ‘postcard@mms.minick.net’, including accompanying text and the address of the recipient, and T-Mobile, working with printing company Minick, will produce the full color card and send it to the intended recipient via ‘normal’ mail. Pics received before 4 PM are delivered the next day.
