Last month Samsung Electronics Co launched a mobile instant messaging tool called ChatON, a free mobile communication service that allows users to communicate instantly with any mobile phone.
ChatOn will be available in more than 120 countries and up to 62 languages.
It is available in two functionality options:
1) A basic functionality option: Available for feature phone users who prefer simple and easy usage, allowing users to share text, pictures, calendar, contacts and emotions through an easy-to-access client.
2) Advanced feature options: Available for smart phone users enabling richer communication by allowing users to see how often they communicate with their buddies using the Interaction Rank feature and post comments on buddies’ profile pages. Users can also create an ‘Animation message’ which allows them to create their own content by scribbling texts, adding audio and choosing their background pictures. All photos and videos in each conversation window can be viewed in an automatically-generated content sharing ‘Trunk’.
