Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
While the boom in mobile technology throughout 2013 has been largely driven by applications and handset refinement, towards the end of the year there have been mentions and even substantial investments in relooking the possible benefits MMS (multimedia messaging services) could offer mobile marketers. According to Mashable.com, Chicago's Iris Mobile announced earlier this week that it received $3 million in Series a financing led by Chicago's Origin Ventures, Illinois Ventures, Hyde Park Angels and OCA Ventures, in a move to expand on its MMS capabilities.
While multimedia messages remain relevant, in communicating high quality visuals through certain handsets, their financial viability and loading time impact on mass appeal, which is of the utmost importance when engaging in mobile marketing.
