By sponsoring the applications and making them free to download, lastminute.com has already helped consumers save over $10 Million and we are hoping that the release of Windows Mobile versions will have some equally impressive results.
London, UK (PRWEB) October 2, 2008
A series of six Talking Phrase Books for Windows Mobile devices developed on behalf of travel and leisure pioneers lastminute.com have been released today and are available to download completely free of charge from Coolgorilla.com
Available in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Greek, the phrasebooks translate hundreds of basic holiday phrases into both text and audio using the voices of professional native translators.
Quick and easy to use, the Phrasebooks provide a familiar menu system with categories such as Accommodation and Travel. Simply find your required phrase, and your Windows Mobile device then "speaks" the phrase via the phone's speaker.
The software has proved to be a tremendous success across other platforms, most notably the iPhone where the phrasebooks have already gone "Platinum" achieving over one million downloads since their release in June.
"By sponsoring the applications and making them free to download, lastminute.com has already helped consumers save over $10 Million and we are hoping that the release of Windows Mobile versions will have some equally impressive results." Said Roy Forsdick, Managing Director of Coolgorilla.
Coolgorilla develop innovative free iPod, iPhone and Mobile downloads which provide brand owners with unique marketing opportunities and create high levels of consumer appreciation.
In addition to their ad-funded software, Coolgorilla also offer a range of bespoke development services to publishers wishing to recycle their existing content into new products, often capable of generating greater margins than the original format.
