Sony Ericsson phones to feature visual voicemail from Comverse
Comverse, a New York-based software provider, has announced that it’s collaborating with Sony Ericsson in order to bring visual voicemail to its phones.
With visual voicemail, your voicemail messages are shown in an in-box which features an email-like interface – this provides valuable info including date, time and length of messages, and even caller number or identity (if available).
“Our strategic cooperation with handset leaders like Sony Ericsson helps ensure that new handsets can offer the most attractive and user-friendly visual voicemail experience to the broadest number of people. Visual voicemail’s success comes from providing users a richer array of capabilities and choice. Its value to operators is underscored by solid global take-up figures showing that it can increase voicemail usage and penetration in key segments,” declared John Bunyan, Chief Marketing Officer at Comverse.
Many carriers around the world (Verizon included) have launched visual voicemail services for a while now.
