MetroPCS introduces push to talk

just announced that. So, in order to spice things up, they’re adding on. Once the service launches, Metro subscribers can initiate a PTT communication with any device on any network. This gives Metro an edge in the PTT market, since most other options restrict PTT services to enabled handsets only. You can still only initiate a PTT session from an enabled phone — currently only the Kyocera K312p on Metro — but it can be continued on any device. This services is coming through Kodiak, who are also aiding Verizon with their push-to-talk efforts.

“It’s a big move forward in the push-to-talk industry,” said Bruce Lawler, executive vice president for business development and product marketing at Kodiak. “It’s the first launch of this kind in the world.”
There aren’t many more details at the time, but this sounds like a development that could help change the industry.]]>
