Stockholm, Sweden, 2006/12/07 - With the mobile address book as a starting point, Radarspot is launching a new mobile service which transforms the average mobile phone into a powerful, cost efficient unit for free-of-charge, operator independent mobile communication.
The Radarspot application is completely free of charge and simple to download to your mobile phone. Shortly after the launch of the first version, Radarspot already has users in more than 100 countries.
The first version of Radarspot includes automatic backup of the mobile address book, automatic supply of news bulletins to the mobile phone, incredibly inexpensive text messaging as an alternative to SMS, and a service for Instant Messaging (IM) connected to the popular MSN Messenger. 71% of the world’s consumers of IM use MSN Messenger.
Niklas Kviselius, CEO Radarspot AB comments: “The mobile address book is the starting point for all mobile communication. Its huge potential has not been taken advantage of until now, and therefore Radarspot’s mission is to develop and supply smart and independent functions in order to liberate today’s mobile phone users from expensive commitments, and to let them fully make use of the potential in modern powerful mobile phones”.
“IM-services often involve commitments to mobile phone operators. With Radarspot, anyone can now use these popular services free of charge.”
“If the pricing of SMS would apply to data traffic in Sweden, 1MB would cost approximately 630 USD. How many would accept that from their PC?”
The Radarspot concept builds on technology that connects the computer with the mobile phone in a way which makes the mobile phone user completely platform independent, and enables the user to, via their mobile phone, remotely control a powerful server connected to the Internet.
Radarspot continuously develops and adds new functions to the core service which has now been launched. Examples: Automatic peer-to-peer synchronization of the mobile address book, IP-telephony, and the possibility for so called “m-commerce”, that is, purchasing products and services directly through the mobile phone.
