Mobile Monday London

Event: Enabling Mobile Voice Services


Feb, 2010

With the rise of smarter handsets, now at 39% penetration in the UK, and the use of 3G on the steady increase and with it becoming more reliable, services such as VoIP (like Skype), speech recognition and audio processing are now more feasible than ever on mobile. Let's also not forget that mobile phones were designed so we could *speak* to each other so it seems that these new(ish) voice and audio services should be a natural fit. But where do we go next with these services? So, this month we're taking a fresh look at voice and audio services on mobile to see what that means for consumers and what the uptake is or likely to be, and to understand the business models and the strategic challenges around integrating or offering such services.

Skype LogoSkype is software that enables the world's conversations. Over half a billion users worldwide have signed up to Skype, enabling them to make free video and voice calls, send instant messages and share files with other Skype users. Freed from concerns of cost and location, millions of people are now using the rich communications experience Skype provides to stay in touch using their mobile phone.
