Austin, Texas, 06 Feb. 2003 Austin, Texas-based mobile entertainment studio GridBloc, Inc today announced, in time for Valentines Day, the global availability of GridBloc Greetings, which enable Microsoft Smartphone, Wi-Fi/Wireless PocketPC and desktop users to compose, send and receive full-color, customized e-greetings anytime, anywhere without incurring MMS fees.
In addition to sending colorful Greetings to Smartphones, PocketPC Phones or standard email accounts, GridBloc Greetings users can send cleverly pre-written SMS, or text message, Greetings to non-rich mobiles. All of this is available from rich-devices or from the web at http://www.gridbloc.com/greetings.
Initially available in English, Greetings will soon be available in the same four languages of English, French, Spanish and Japanese as the mobile GridBloc Comix, from which many of the characters are drawn.
Technically, GridBloc Greetings are made possible by custom software bridge developed by GridBloc, Inc to facilitate visual messaging in a market that spans mobile-devices-to-desktops. Delivered to traditional email accounts as a standard email, Greetings delivered to rich-media mobiles are formatted as SMS with a link, rendered clickable by the Microsoft Smartphone and PocketPC Phone Edition OS. GridBloc Greetings mobile recipients simply click the hyperlink to enjoy the e-greeting composed by their friend.
"People love to talk and to share," says Mario Champion, Chief Creative officer of GridBloc, Inc. "and pictures do indeed say more than words. Now, GridBloc Greetings makes sending and receiving clever visual messages on rich-media mobiles easy, fast and fun."
