Nokia launches new multipoint mobile chat application
Posted: 03-Sep-2000 [Source: Nokia]

[The Nokia "FriendsTalk" service was launched this week with seamless chatting between WAP, GPRS, and SMS handsets.]

Nokia today introduced Nokia FriendsTalk, a mobile chat application that enables mobile operators and service providers to offer new enhanced, easy-to-use group communication services for their subscribers. Nokia FriendsTalk brings mobile Internet chat services into today's networks.

Mobile chat is an interactive form of online discussion allowing group communications among friends, or interest and hobby groups whilst on the move. Subscribers can join public chat rooms or create their own chat groups by forming "Friends Lists". They are able to follow and take part in discussions, send messages to multiple receivers simultaneously and retain their anonymity if needed.

"Internet based chat has become one of the most popular means of personal communications today. In the mobile world, the use of Short Message Services has risen dramatically, becoming a driving force for many new mobile services; according to estimates around 8 billion SMS messages are sent every month in the world. Mobile chat combines these two and takes the SMS culture a step further, increasing customer-loyalty, bringing new revenues for operators and new services for subscribers," said Pekka Oranen, Senior Vice President, Mobile Internet Applications, Nokia Networks.

For users, the Nokia FriendsTalk application offers easy to use, discreet and instant communications tools by providing multipoint messaging, public and private channels and individual user profiles.

Nokia FriendsTalk is now available for USSD and SMS technologies and it is designed to support other access methods, such as WAP and GPRS, allowing seamless chatting between users, regardless of the terminal. In the future, Nokia FriendsTalk will be integrated with multimedia messaging within the evolution to 3rd Generation networks. The new application can be quickly installed into existing networks, providing low cost entry and scalability with reliable and flexible management.
