CAPE TOWN, South Africa, PORT LOUIS, Mauritius and LONDON, November 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- AFRICACOM 2012 - Mi-Fone and EMOZE Ltd. today announce the launch of a new range of smart feature phone devices embedded with EMOZE's push mail and messaging technology. These next generation phones provide a more user-friendly email and instant messaging experience.
With EMOZE pre-embedded in the devices, users will be able to easily and securely access both enterprise and personal email accounts, synchronise their email contacts and calendar, view office attachments, send voice messages via email, and even real-time chat via pin messaging with their friends.
EMOZE is fixed in the operating system of the device and does not require any middleware or runtime environment to load, but rather it starts when the phone is powered on. In addition, EMOZE is suitable on any IP-based network, and does not require any SMS integration.
