Globaltel launches pre-release of texting app

The application enables two-way communication between online users and mobile cellular devices.

By CBR Staff Writer

Globaltel Media, a provider of communications software, has launched the pre-release version of its new application, Cherple.

Cherple allows two-way text communication between online computers and mobile wireless cellular devices. To initiate a conversation, the online user is expected to enter the username and the destination phone number into the Cherple application. A two-way chat is then initiated between the online user and the mobile cellular phone.

The company claims that Cherple technology will eventually provide any of the global 1.5 billion online users with back-and-forth text-message conversations to any of the 3.3 billion wireless devices worldwide using standard SMS messaging.

The pre-release version of Cherple is currently limited to texting US mobile wireless cellular phones, according to Globaltel Media.

Robert Sanchez, president and CEO of Globaltel Media, said: Our solution allows people in the US, who have friends and family overseas, or even just next door, to communicate using very simple and basic text technologies found on all US mobile cellular phones. Cherple users do not need a new cell phone or cell phone data plan, will not have to download any cell phone software and can chat with phones on all US wireless carriers.
