Earlier last month, we caught wind of a possible visual voicemail service for AT&T BlackBerry users. Now, on the eve of CTIA Wireless 2009, Comverse has announced its own BlackBerry visual voicemail solution for carriers.
The Comverse Visual Voicemail solution delivers all messages to a BlackBerry’s inbox, complete with each voicemail’s date, time and length, as well as each caller’s phone number and identity if available. Listening to messages and returning phone calls are as simple as clicking on the message.
Visual voicemail is actually just one component of the company’s Comverse Voice HUB solution:
The Voice HUB, Comverse’s advanced single platform for all voice services, provides a “Whole Voice” experience — a spectrum of revenue opportunities for every call. It enables quick and cost-effective launch of innovative mass-market voice-related services.
Comverse will demo its visual voicemail service at CTIA in Vegas starting tomorrow. Now all we need is a major carrier (or three) to jump on the bandwagon.
In the meantime, you can keep using YouMail’s free vv service. See ya on voicemail…
