Miyowa says that its newly released instant messaging technology (announced last May), MoveMessenger, is now available at the i-mode portal of Greece’s Cosmote.

Miyowa provided Cosmote with a turnkey solution, including the MSN messenger certified application both in Greek and English versions, billing connectivity and the design and build of the i-mode site where end-users download the messenger.

“We believe Instant Messaging on mobile phones is a promising service for the future, as a next step following SMS and chat, which our customers will definitely enjoy, specially the ones already using it on the internet. In cooperation with Miyowa, Cosmote offers the first official MSN instant messaging service in Greece through our i-mode Portal, which will allow our customers to seamlessly keep on messaging with their friends, from their mobile phones, simply as they do on their PCs. As we usually do, we offer it for free for an initial period, in order to have our users get used to the service, its advantages and user friendliness” said Mr. George Vorvis, Cosmote VAS Dep. Director and i-mode project manager.

MoveMessenger extends the familiar PC Instant Messenger service to the mobile environment and with more than 300 compatible handsets on offer. MoveMessenger can be deployed, at mobile carrier, in just seven weeks. MoveMessenger is compatible with all major instant brands.

Cosmote ended Q1 ’06 with just over 4.7 million customers, representing a 37% market share.
