Multi Media SMS Message (MMS)
|The MMS standard is a new
and revolutionary way of sending messages.
It is currently defined and specified as a standard
for third generation mobile telecommunication and is ultimately expected
to become the preferred messaging method for mobile terminal users.
MMS can transmit messages containing
text, graphics, photographic images, audio and even video
clips between mobile devices using Wireless Application Protocol
(WAP) as bearer technology and powered by the high-speed transmission
technologies EDGE and GPRS.
Today's enormously popular SMS text messaging service handles some 15 billion character-based messages per month worldwide.
Nokia and Ericsson's Multimedia Messaging will lead the
way to profit and appeal to all parts of the value
chain, by providing value-added services and new revenue streams for
operators, content providers, and advertisers.
