[Sprint goes multi-lingual with the Versaly ringer library.]
Overland Park, Kan. and Seattle, Wash. -- Sprint, which operates the largest all-digital, all-PCS nationwide network, and Versaly Entertainment, a wireless new media company focused on creating, publishing and distributing broad-based entertainment to mobile phones, today announced that PCS Vision(SM) customers can now download Spanish language Voice Ringers. Sprint recently announced Voice Ringers as the newest category to its catalog of downloadable Ringers. In addition to Spanish Voice Ringers, Sprint also offers downloadable voice content from its English language categories: Celebrities/Rock Stars, Male and Female.
This expansion of the existing Ringers library will give Sprint the ability to deliver rich, compelling wireless content to its Spanish speaking customers in a targeted way. PCS Vision customers can now have their phone ring with a woman's voice saying, "Oye tu, apurate, tu telefono esta timbrando." (Hey you! Hurry, your phone is ringing), or "Hola papi. Contesta el telefono. Soy yo y yo se que no quieres perdir mi llamada." (Hey Big Boy! Answer the phone. It's me and I know you don't want to miss my call.)
"Spanish Voice Ringers further extend the ability to personalize your PCS Phone," said Chip Novick, vice president of consumer marketing for the PCS division of Sprint. "Sprint is reaching out to consumers in a diversified way - and specifically to an important segment of Sprint's growing customer base."
Matthew Feldman, president of Versaly, said, "With the success of the English language Voice Ringers and other Animated Ringers we have supplied to Sprint, it is very exciting to now also serve the Spanish speaking community. Voice Ringers are becoming very popular and are a humorous way to personalize your phone in any language!"
Spanish Voice Ringers are the latest addition to PCS Vision from Sprint, which includes services that allow customers to take and receive pictures from select PCS Phones; browse the Internet at speeds faster than most dial-up connections; check personal and corporate e-mail; watch clips and stream audio for news and music; download polyphonic, animated and voice ringers, and full- color, graphically-rich games and screen savers.
