[3 to launch video mail messaging service named 3VideoSvar on May 12.]
3, Ericsson, and Mobeon present the Nordics' first video mail messaging service named 3VideoSvar offering 3 VoiceMail with video. Video mail makes 3 the first operator in the Nordics offering a total 3G mobile answering service. Video mail for 3's customers is expected to be available on 12 May.
The new service will considerably improve current mobile answering functions. Thanks to the new technology, users who cannot answer may record a video message for callers, who in turn, can leave video messages. The service manages video and voice messages, which creates a mobile message center for video and voice. Video mail also simplifies all functions, such as "press 1 to record," etc. are transformed into animated menus that enable an overview, ease-of-use, and speed for users. In addition, they can get the big picture, i.e., better overview. The overview improves even further with 3 offering their customers 3Mail on the web where all messages are received: voice, video, SMS, MMS, and e-mail.
At the start, several prerecorded video messages will be available, and users may choose among them if they don't care to use their own recordings. Soon, the offering of videos with greetings will increase, for example, music videos, animated videos, and humorous clips.
Costs and usage
3VideoSvar will incur no cost for users; instead, it is automatically connected. Calling 3VideoSvar is the same as calling 3Svar (3 Videomail). Users' press 333 as usual, but they select the video button instead of the telephone button.
