[VizTones bundle ringtones with images, animation, text and anything else a handset can do to get attention.]
Pleasanton, CA -- FunMail VizTones, rolling out across FunMail's ringtone services and SnapOn portals, blend wallpapers, animations and ringtones into a rich media ringtone, optimized to specific handset capabilities.
"VizTones are a logical next step for ringtones, and the centerpiece of FunMail's Ringtones Universe and our upcoming FunTones service," said FunMail CEO Adam Lavine. "VizTones are next generation ringers that blend image, animation and sound together into a compelling multimedia ringtone experience."
VizTones enable consumers to purchase bundled image and ringtone content; for example a consumer might buy a 50 Cent VizTone that blends a 50 Cent wallpaper and a 50 Cent ringtone. Even more exciting, certain handsets can display Animated VizTones, in the form of a CMX animation or Mpeg 4 movie, adding a rich new dimension to the ringtone experience.
FunMail is also rolling out personalized VizTones, where the user can type in a name or other text, which can be displayed when a certain person calls along with a specific ringtone.
"VizTones(TM) are fun, high quality, and consumer friendly," said FunMail's VP Sales and Marketing Andy Baldocchi. "This service tested extremely well among 16-24 year olds, and we're excited about bringing this new content to our partners and mobile consumers."
