Gemalto brings SIMessenger to South America
Gemalto’s SIMessenger enables users to keep in touch with their Windows Live Messenger contacts from their mobile phone. SIMessenger offers an menu that allows subscribers to access their Windows Live Messenger environment with an experience similar to what they get when accessing it from a PC. SIMessenger also automatically launches when they switch their handset on, so they can start chatting immediately. Additionally, as the service is available in the SIM card, subscribers can access the service from any mobile device.
To date, three operators have successfully deployed SIMessenger: Oi in Brazil, Personal in Argentina and Movistar in Peru. Gemalto has already delivered close to 5 million SIM cards embedding the Windows Live instant messaging application.
