Seven Pushes IM to Its Email and Messaging App
Seven, maker of mobile email and messaging services for network operators, today announced the addition of push-based instant messaging to its portfolio of services. Seven's mobile IM product supports Yahoo! Messenger, AIM, ICQ, Microsoft Windows Live Messenger, and Google Talk on a range of feature phones and smartphones. Seven says that its IM client more closely matches the desktop experience, can run in the background, and offers push alerts when new messages arrive. It will be up to network operators to adopt this new functionality and offer it to end users.
