LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HulloMail™ (www.hullomail.com), the new hybrid voicemail and email communications technology, is now taking its service offering to the mainstream wireless marketplace by announcing today the launch of its highly anticipated Blackberry app, that offers users the benefits of a fully integrated “voice-email” service.
HulloMail, which converts standard voicemails into digital MP3 files to be permanently saved, emailed, shared, referenced, and enjoyed, offers wireless users the quickest, easiest way to manage their voicemail communications from virtually any mobile device, standard landline phone or email account, regardless of the selected operator. The service essentially replaces traditional voicemail with new, more user efficient voice-emails.
The feature-rich Blackberry app is now live and available for free download from the HulloMail site for new and existing Blackberry users with the Blackberry Bold, Blackberry Tour, and Blackberry Curve™ 8900 models. Users can visit www.hullomail.com from their Blackberry to obtain early access. The app will additionally be available shortly on the Blackberry App World micro-site at http://appworld.blackberry.com.
By downloading the app, Blackberry users will be able to enjoy the convenience of receiving and playing voice-emails directly from their inbox; the ease of being always “on” and being notified of any missed calls (even in areas with no or limited mobile reception); the ability to share, delete or keep voicemails forever at the simple click of a button; and the benefit of greater personalization as they are able to instantly see photos of the person, from their personal Contacts, who is calling them.
Additionally, HulloMail for Blackberry delivers all of the standard HulloMail features including message list/media playback, sender call back, push notification, full syncing capabilities with IMAP 4 accounts and integration with Google contacts or local phone contacts, email account configuration, greeting and password configuration, and other user interface benefits to streamline easy access to and management of received voice-emails. The HulloMail service also works with a user’s existing mobile number – a huge advantage for mobile consumers not wanting the burden and expense of a number change.
“HulloMail is the future of voicemail technology,” said Andy Munarriz, founder and CEO of HulloMail. “Today’s busy consumers, who have access to the latest communications tools in every other area of their mobile life, don’t want their voicemails to be hidden in a black box on a network to which they have no direct access. They want their messages to be easily trackable and manageable in a common inbox where they can personally handle them in a streamlined manner whenever they want to. With HulloMail, we are taking the storage of voicemail directly to the end user where it rightfully belongs.”
“The rollout of the HulloMail service for Blackberry is a major app introduction for us and represents a significant new direction for the company,” explained Munarriz. “Our initial rollout of the service in both the U.S. and U.K. markets proved that the appetite for our product – and the desire among communications consumers to streamline and advance their voicemail functionality – is strong. We anticipate that the availability of our service on Blackberry will greatly expand the number of wireless users with access to HulloMail and we expect to see a significant increase in the mainstream market trial and adoption of the brand in both markets.” Added Munarriz: “We believe that ‘voice-email’ will lead to a true rebirth of voicemail and we are extremely excited about the future of this technology.”
In addition to now being available for Blackberry, the HulloMail service will roll out to additional major formats, including the iPhone, later this fall.
HulloMail is the fastest, easiest and most flexible way to handle your voicemail from virtually any mobile device, standard landline phone or email account, no matter which operator you use. It’s free, easy and incorporates all the immediacy of email to create new, more user efficient “voice-emails” that essentially replace your existing voicemail and offer an entirely new level of communication and functionality.
