Comverse and Research In Motion Limited (RIM) have announced plans to integrate Comverse's Visual Voicemail with BlackBerry. Comverse's Visual Voicemail is a service offered as part of Comverse's InSight Open Services Environment.
With Visual Voicemail for BlackBerry, users will have an easy-to-use application, as it will bypass dial-in access and voice prompts and will enable quick and hassle-free access to any voicemail message with a simple click of the trackwheel on a BlackBerry device. The Visual Voicemail application will also integrate with core BlackBerry applications, enabling users to manage their voicemail together with email, messaging and phone applications through a single inbox.
Visual Voicemail for BlackBerry is designed to transform the voicemail experience by allowing users to browse and manipulate the contents of their voicemail box with email-like ease and functionality, just click-and-listen. With Visual Voicemail for BlackBerry, users will be able to quickly see the identity of the caller, along with the time and the length of the voicemail and simply click on the message to hear the voicemail.
RIM and Comverse are meeting with carrier partners during the 3GSM World Conference 2005 to demonstrate the technology.
