Noted: to Launch on January 21st is a mobile media sharing startup that first breached the surface briefly back in July. Just long enough for the tech press to learn that it is founded by former TechCruncher Keith Teare, and it will allow users to share messages and pics. But without having to deal with a social network back-end and a business model that’s not based on monetizing a social graph. seems to be based instead on sharing stuff with people you already know in your contact list. No public timeline, no suggestions on new people you should meet, and no–we hope–inadvertent privacy lapses.

We’ve just learned that will release a beta version of their software into the App Store on January 21st. Android version to come later in Q1.
