July 12, 2001 - Mobile Entertainment Network Now Offers SMS
PocketBoxOffice Micro-Entertainment Network markets new
and entertaining SMS initiatives
MONTREAL, July 12, 2001 -- In the fast-paced world of mobile entertainment,
Airborne’s PocketBoxOffice promises to keep you in the fast lane. With the
launch of PocketBoxOffice SMS, available to all mobile carriers with SMS
technology, customers can now receive (and soon interact with!) some of the
best micro-entertainment star brands.
SMS is a standard type of message that can be sent between SMS enabled
wireless devices including mobile phones. SMS stands for “short message
service” and messages presently have approximately 160 characters.
Choose when you would like to receive everything from Joke Jolt, Broken News
Headlines, Brainpoop or any of the other ten daily offerings (SMS Alerts are
also available in French).
As mobile carriers adapt their platforms, PocketBoxOffice will be ready for
the next phase. Here are just some of the new PocketBoxOffice SMS offerings
that we’re developing:
- Celebrity Dynamic Alerts Want to know what your favourite band is up to?
Have them SMS you directly to keep you up to date. Want to know what’s
happening on the sidelines of the next Superbowl? PocketBoxOffice Celebrity
Dynamic Alerts will make sure you get an SMS Alert before even the broadcasters know what’s going on. Get up close and personal with your
- Ring Tones When your phone rings, are you tired of a digital beep? Wouldn’t you rather have your phone ring to the beautiful melody of
Blondie’s Call Me? How about The Beatles, Radiohead, J.Lo or Blink 182? You
can even compose your own!
- Screen Icons Instead of numbers popping up when someone calls, turn your
friend into one of the characters from Adam@Home, your girlfriend into Cathy
or your business partner into Mister Boffo. You can also add animated icons
to personalize your phone and give it your own character.
