Telecom Launches T3g Video Messaging


Telecom Launches T3g Video Messaging In Time For Christmas

Telecom’s launch of T3G Video Messaging provides a new way for budding filmmakers, aspiring journalists, doting parents, budding entrepreneurs, or just good mates, to capture and share life’s unexpected moments.

Video messaging lets users record 15-30 seconds of “mobile movie” footage, including sound, with their mobile phone. This can be sent to others with a Telecom video phone, where it can be viewed instantly on their screen, or sent to the email addresses of friends and family anywhere in the world. If recipients have a text-capable phone, they will receive a link to a website where they can watch the video.

Telecom is currently offering the Sanyo 7400, with a second video phone – the Samsung A680 – due to be launched in early January. All video capable phones are also capable of sending Photo Messages.

Videos can be stored on the phone themselves and saved online alongside a customer’s photos in their Personal Online Gallery.

Video Messaging is free until the end of March 2005. From 1 April 2005, customers will be charged $1.00 per recipient for each video message they send. It will be free to receive a video message.

Video Messaging is supported by the recently launched Mobile Broadband data network and is part of a new range of third generation mobile services from Telecom called T3G.

Next year, customers with video capable phones will also be able to stream video clips directly to their mobile. A demo of the service including news and weather, music, entertainment, and sports footage is available now for customers who purchase a Sanyo 7400 mobile phone.
