Colibria, the leading new generation provider of mobile instant messaging (MIM) and Presence-enabled solutions, recently announced availability of its Colibria Lite client to support low cost Java based handset growth in emerging markets...
By providing this new client for basic and low cost handsets, operators and service providers will be able to support their drive for mass market service adoption in emerging markets with innovative and compelling MIM services. The availability of low cost handsets and compelling services will be crucial in connecting the unconnected and supporting the social and economic development of many emerging market countries.
The relatively high availability of mobile networks, but relatively low penetration of PCs and broadband, makes MIM and Presence services extremely compelling as it provides instantaneous group-based dialogue and reduces barriers to communication for mobile users. The Colibria Lite client provides basic MIM and Presence functionality for a wide range of low-end handsets.
Features include Presence availability, mood, status text and alias within the contact list - enabling users to manage and express their availability to chat according to the context they are in. As with Colibria's other leading solutions, the operator has the ability to brand the client so that it compliments their existing look and feel, while fitting into a complete end-to-end service offering.
"New interactive services and communications are not just for Smartphones and high end devices," comments Lars Kristian Roland, Chief Technology Officer at Colibria. "We are constantly striving to drive take-up of mass market mobile IM by helping operators achieve the widest possible handset support across both developed and emerging markets."
Combined with Colibria's leading end-to-end functionality for user provisioning, silent login, Presence authorization, subscriptions and OTA download support, the Colibria Lite client brings rich MIM and Presence to a much wider market.
