conVISUAL, the first Visual Messaging Service Provider, and Yahoo!
Deutschland have decided to collaborate. In a first step, Yahoo!
Handy has introduced three of conVISUAL's mobile messaging services:
Downloading of logos and ringtones, the mobile Advent calendar and
the mobile multimedia greeting cards.
conVISUAL is a specialist in developing visual messaging services
for today's and tomorrow's mobile phone networks. With its Multimedia
Message Broker (MMB) platform, conVISUAL supports all common
messaging formats like SMS, Smart Messaging, Enhanced Messaging (EMS)
and WAP, in addition to upcoming mobile phone standards like the
Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) and i-mode. As a result of the
collaboration with Yahoo! Deutschland, Yahoo! Handy users can avail
of conVISUAL's innovative multimedia services.
"conVISUAL is making multimedia services accessible to the mass
market over the Yahoo! Handy portal. Mobile phone users can now enjoy
unrestricted communication, irrespective of the technological
specifications of their mobile devices," explains Torsten Jüngling,
Sales Director at conVISUAL.
Logos and ringtones based on conVISUAL's MMB platform are
immediately available from Yahoo! Handy. At logos.yahoo.de and
klingeltoene.yahoo.de, customers can arrange their mobile phones as

In time for Christmas, conVISUAL has launched one of the newest
applications at Yahoo!: The first ever mobile Advent calendar for all
mobile phone users. The mobile Advent calendar is the ideal gift for
any mobile phone enthusiast. From December 1st to 24th, a Christmas
greeting is received on the mobile phone in the form of a saying,
logo and/or ringtone. It does not matter what messaging standard the
device supports - conVISUAL automatically converts the content into
the appropriate format and sends it as a Smart Message, Enhanced
Message (EMS) or SMS text.
Simultaneously to introducing the mobile Advent calendar,
conVISUAL also presents the mobile multimedia greeting cards. The
customer simply selects one of the many images available at
smsgruesse.yahoo.de, adds a personal text and sends the greeting card
to a recipient of his/her choice. Again, the technological
specifications of the recipient's mobile phone are irrelevant for
this application as conVISUAL optimally matches the content with the
various messaging formats.
