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.
