General Wireless announces first commercial launch of multimedia PC plug-ins for Vista-Outlook 2007

General Wireless, the global market eader in PC-to-mobile messaging, today announced that a leading mobile operator has upgraded its PC-to-mobile messaging system to handle both text (SMS) and multimedia (MMS) messaging in Microsoft®Vista and Microsoft®Outlook®2007.

The operator, part of a major multinational telecoms group, launched its PC-to-mobile service in 2004. The service, targeted at enterprises, SMEs and consumers has since then attracted a large number of customers. The new offering makes it easy for any subscriber with an Internet connection to send text, pictures, sound and video from a PC to mobile phones. The software can be downloaded from the operator website at no cost – users are only charged for sending SMS and MMS messages.

The PC plug-in comes in two versions:

Outlook version: SMS and MMS functionality integrated in Microsoft Outlook. It has been adapted to work with the new security policies in Microsoft®Vista® and it supports all Outlook versions from Outlook 2000 to Outlook 2007.

Desktop version: SMS and MMS functionality integrated in the Windows Desktop environment. Features include an Internet Explorer Toolbar for SMS, integration in Outlook Express/Windows Mail and right-click on pictures in Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer.

”We see strong growth in the market for PC-to-mobile messaging, and we expect it to grow even faster with the addition of support for multimedia and Microsoft Vista and Outlook 2007. We believe that many more people will be using PC-to-mobile messaging in the future,” said Anders Hardebring, CEO at General Wireless.

General Wireless has developed the concept of PC-to-mobile messaging, a service that can work from all PCs to all mobiles. Its eSMS technology has been selected by a large number of leading mobile operators including Vodafone UK, Telefónica Móviles España, Orange, Telecom Italia Mobile, KPN, Teliasonera and 3.
