Palm Desert, Calif. (PRWEB) February 5, 2008
800PBX launched a new service that lets anyone access web content on any phone, including landline and mobile, without a web browser or a data plan.
"PDAs come with their set of their problems - expensive, tough to type and difficult to maintain. 800 Genie is our first step to connect users with the internet in a convenient way without any data plans or applications to download," says Manohar Chapalamadugu, the founder of 800PBX.
"More than 95% of the phones do not have internet access over the phone. With 800 Genie, we integrated the most powerful internet with the most popular telephony network," adds Sreedhar Ambati, the Chief Operations Officer.
Built using the patent pending technologies, 800 Genie provides a wide gamut of services including reading and replying to your mail (Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL and most service providers are supported), real-time tele-blogging, group messaging, reminders, traffic updates, directions, weather, various kinds of news including business, top stories, sports etc. Genie can also maintain your calendar and notes. Genie uses advanced speech recognition engines to match voice inputs. Besides speech, Genie can also understand touch tones.
Demo says, "This company has flipped the question of the mobile Web on its side and delivered a very useful service that isn't so much about bringing Web sites to mobile devices as it is about accessing Web-based information services through the most ubiquitous device going: the telephone, mobile or landline. As a consumer service, 800 Genie delivers personalized, Web-based data to the phone. As an enterprise service, 800 PBX opens a world of possibilities for workgroup communications and information sharing."
