Motorola Releases Push-To-Talk Client For Symbian Phones

Motorola has released software that would give push-to-talk capablities to Symbian Series 60 phones.
Motorola said Tuesday that it has released client software that will enable Symbian Series 60 phones to be used as push-to-talk (PTT) devices.

The goal of the client software, is to enable wireless operators to more quickly bring PTT services to market and to offer that service on a wider range of phones, the company said in a statement. Operators will be able to customize the client software to fit their needs, the company said. In addition, the software can be installed over-the-air.

Motorola said in a statement that it would be increasing the capabilities of the client software in coming months to include so-called push-to-view services. The software will be distributed free of charge to operators that use Motorola infrastructure equipment, the company said.
