AT&T announced several new messaging services designed to bring smartphone-like experiences to a wider range of lower-cost devices. Four new Quick Messaging devices will be added to its line-up.
"Quick Messaging Devices are very important for us – it's a category that we defined for the industry and that we continue to lead in value, quality and innovation," said David Christopher, chief marketing officer of AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets, in a press release. "Quick Messaging Devices are among our most popular and fastest-growing phones. They offer great value – and now will offer cutting-edge services that enhance the overall experience consumers have with these phones."
New services, to premiere first on the Samsung Strive, include the AT&T Address Book, group messaging and AT&T Mobile Share, which is designed to help customers transfer photos and videos captured on their mobile phone to other destinations and allows customers to manage the content across the mobile and PC screens.
The new quick messaging phones for spring 2010 include the Samsung Strive, Samsung Sunburst, Pantech Link and Pantech Pursuit.
