Telecom Mobile Brings ‘Djuice’ To NZ Partners

Telecom Mobile Brings ‘Djuice’ To New Zealand Partners With Leading Global Mobile Technology Company

Telecom Mobile Limited announced today an agreement with Norway’s leading telecommunications company, Telenor, to bring its ‘djuice’ mobile services portal to New Zealand.

The djuice mobile portal provides an easy web interface so customers can manage and customise their choice of mobile Internet services. Using djuice, Telecom Mobile customers will be able to individually tailor the services they wish to access via their phone.

“With djuice and the new CDMA cellular network we are rolling out, customers will be able to access a large number of services through their mobile devices as an alternative to using fixed wire Internet. Mobile devices will offer fast and easy access to highly personalised applications and content”, said Telecom Mobile General Manager, Mohan Jesudason.

“By bringing djuice to New Zealand we will be able to offer our customers access to what is arguably the world’s best user experience and range of content through mobile phones and PDA’s,” he said.

djuice services available at launch will include email, short message service alerts, message board, calendar, personalised WAP (wireless application protocol) menus and a WAP/PDA (personal digital assistants) search engine.

Telecom and third party developers will continue to build on the platform with services such as stock market quotes, banking, news and entertainment.

djuice has been developed by Telenor Mobile Communications (TMC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Telenor. TMC is one of the world’s most advanced mobile voice, data, internet and m-commerce companies, with operations in 12 countries and revenues of almost $NZ 10 billion last year.

djuice was recently voted the number 1 mobile portal in Europe by Forrester Research.

“We are excited to partner with Telenor, who we selected from a range of potential international partners. The portal will be available in New Zealand from the end of May and a number of enhancements including local content and applications will be progressively rolled out,” said Mr Jesudason.
