Cingular today launched Push to Talk, its PTT walkie-talkie service. Cingular is offering the service as an add-on to existing voice plans for a flat rate of $9.99 per month for unlimited use, or $19.99 for family plans. As rumored, the company has chosen Kodiak's RTX system. Unique features include visual real-time availability information (presence), call waiting, and the ability to convert a PTT call to a normal voice call at any time. Like other PTT services, it also offers 1-to-1 or group access with one touch of a dedicated side key, contacts and groups can be configured on the phone, and it can work over speakerphone or via earpiece like a normal phone call. The LG F7200 - an entry-level slider available in stores today - is the only compatible phone available initially. A second compatible phone - the Samsung D357 clamshell phone with Bluetooth - will be available soon.
