Thinking of successful products that aren’t in Europe, what ever happened to Push to Talk?
Unlike i-mode that had little support from handset manufacturers, Push to Talk can be found in many recent handsets from Nokia and Motorola.
Launched in 2004 and marketed as a premium product to the business community, Orange thought they had a lead on their competitors.
Unfortunately for Orange it rapidly faded as it was more expensive and proprietary than the successful US model.
So will another network oblige? At this rate I don’t believe Nokia customers will be popping the champagne anytime soon.
