Beta of Fusion Voicemail Plus 2.0 for Windows Mobile Launched
An Industry First, New Version of Visual Voicemail Application Gives Windows Mobile Users the Exclusive Ability to Receive Faxes Right on their Smartphone
Las Vegas, CTIA Wireless 2009 – April 1, 2009 – PhoneFusion™, an innovative provider of reliable, hosted communications solutions, joins Microsoft at CTIA Wireless 2009 to launch its beta release of Fusion Voicemail Plus™ 2.0 for Windows Mobile devices. PhoneFusion is showcasing its popular visual voicemail application for smartphones in the Microsoft booth (#5136 Central Hall 1). Fusion Voicemail Plus for Windows Mobile is immediately available for download at www.fvmplus.com and has been tested to fully support the upcoming Windows Mobile 6.5 release from Microsoft.
Fusion Voicemail Plus 2.0 for Windows Mobile is a free, downloadable voicemail application that gives any Windows Mobile smartphone user with a wireless data and text messaging plan the ability to centralize all of their voicemail boxes and see – right on the screen of their mobile device – a list of their voicemail messages. The service also allows users to listen to their voicemails directly from their smartphone.
The most exciting new feature – exclusive to Windows Mobile users – is that for the first time mobile consumers will have the ability to receive faxes right on their smartphone. Users can use their existing mobile number or register a new number to receive faxes. Another feature developed exclusively for Windows Mobile users is the ability to easily forward voicemails to any email address or another Fusion Voicemail Plus mailbox. This new version also integrates with the users address book and expands the ability to use touchscreen gestures to navigate through messages.
“Fusion Voicemail Plus is an innovative mobile application that lets the Windows Mobile community experience the powerful freedom of the mobile lifestyle. As we prepare to introduce the Windows Marketplace for Mobile, we are pleased to partner with PhoneFusion to offer our users a better Voicemail experience. With this partnership, we open the door for millions of Windows Mobile users to experience visual voicemail from any Windows Mobile device,” said Jason Lim, Director ISF & Developer Experience, at Microsoft.
For those interested in participating in the Fusion Voicemail Plus 2.0 for Windows Mobile public beta, PhoneFusion is offering FREE faxing to the first 50,000 Windows Mobile users who download the application. PhoneFusion is also interested in feedback on the visual voicemail application. Beta users can post feedback at http://forum.phonefusion.com.
