Sprint introduces Video Mail and new PTT mobile phone
Posted on 3-Dec-2003 19:47 | Filed under: News

Sprint announced its Video Mail service integrated to its Sprint PCS Vision service. For a flat fee of US$5 a month (in addition to the PCS Vision service fee), users will have:

  • Unlimited Video Mail and Picture Mail taking and sharing
  • Online storage: Sprint customers can manage videos and pictures at the same site. The website lets users pick from various enhancement options that include cropping and lightening/darkening or adding effects such as comic bubbles, cartoons and line drawings, and picture frames and stickers.
  • Unlimited web browsing and up to $5 in credits toward premium downloads such as ringers, screen savers and games.

    Video Mail from Sprint, which is powered by LightSurf, allows customers to capture, view and share 15 seconds of video directly from their PCS Vision Video Phones to any email address or select PCS Vision Phones while on the Sprint Nationwide PCS Network. According to the company, in the third quarter alone, Sprint customers shared and uploaded more than 23 million pictures.

    The service starts with two handsets: the PCS Vision Video Phone VM4500 by Sanyo and the PCS Vision Video Phone VM4050 by Toshiba.

    In 2003, Sprint expects to add two Video Mail handsets to compliment its existing line-up of six camera phones. The PCS Vision Picture Phone VM4500 by Sanyo is currently available at Sprint Stores and select third party retailers. In addition to PCS Vision and Video Mail, the phone supports Sprint's recently announced nationwide PTT (push-to-talk) service: PCS Ready Link. The PCS Vision Picture Phone VM4050 by Toshiba is expected to be available before the end of 2003. The VM4050 will feature a large screen with a detailed 260K full-color screen and 310/350 pixel primary display. Like the VM4500, the VM4050 includes both camera and camcorder functionality, giving customers the ability to take either still or moving images.
