It was mentioned in one of our whispers and now it’s here: Verizon has released a Push-To-Talk application for its fleet of BlackBerry smartphones. Free to download but requiring a monthly fee of $5 to use, Verizon’s BlackBerry PTT app allows for unlimited nation-wide calls to other PTT devices. Other key features include:
- Make group calls with up to 50 participants.
- Use Presence to see who’s available for Push to Talk calls.
- Manage Push to Talk contacts for your entire company online.
- Access email and the Web while you’re on Push to Talk calls.
For the price, we’d say it’s definitely a good deal if you have a lot of family/friends/co-workers that have a PTT capable device, but for everyone else it’s $5 that could better be spent on a pint. Now if only this app were released alongside OS 5.0…
Thanks, to everyone that sent this in!
