Push To Talk - Pushing no more?

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.
