T-Mobile Introduces Bobsled Internet Based Voice and Data Services
      #40482 - 04/19/11 03:00 PM

T-Mobile today introduced Bobsled by T-Mobile, a new brand focusing on traditional telecommunications and Internet-based voice and data services . The first product available under the new Bobsled by T-Mobile brand is the Bobsled application for Facebook, which provides Facebook users worldwide with free, one-touch calling to their Facebook friends from a personal computer and through the social platform's chat window.
In addition to making live voice calls across the globe, users will also be able to send voice messages to their friends either privately or via their "walls." The Bobsled application for Facebook is available today as a free download for all Facebook users and is not exclusive to T-Mobile customers. Now you can talk on Facebook!

More info:

Once downloaded, customers can use the Bobsled application for Facebook to place voice calls to their friends through Facebook Chat with just one click. This is one of the first voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) applications seamlessly integrated into Facebook Chat, which makes it quick and simple to place an impromptu call to a Facebook friend. The application eliminates the need for dialing ? users simply click on a friend?s name to start the conversation. There?s also no need to remember screen names or to input numbers. With the new application, customers also can leave a voice message for friends when they?re not available. Anyone on Facebook can receive a call; no application download is required to receive a call via the Bobsled application for Facebook.

As the way people communicate transcends networks and devices, Bobsled by T-Mobile positions T-Mobile as a provider of cloud-based communications services over the Internet. In addition to providing Facebook users with one-touch calling, Bobsled by T-Mobile also powers the Group Text and Cloud Text applications on the new T-Mobile Sidekick 4G. Bobsled Group Text lets customers create, name, manage and participate in reply-all group text conversations, enabling them to lead their network in conversation and social planning. Bobsled Cloud Text provides the option to text with friends or groups across platforms, whether from the comfort of their PC?s large screen and keyboard, or from their new Sidekick 4G.

In the near future, T-Mobile plans to evolve Bobsled by T-Mobile to include video chat, to create the ability to place VoIP calls to mobile and landline U.S. numbers and to offer applications on smartphones and tablets across various mobile platforms, regardless of the carrier that powers such devices.

The Facebook application for Bobsled by T-Mobile is powered by Vivox, Inc. For more information about Vivox is available at http://www.vivox.com
