Devin at BBCool got the info that SpinVox has released a BlackBerry plugin for their service. In case you don’t know what SpinVox is let me explain. SpinVox captures all of your voicemails and converts them into a text message or email. With the new BlackBerry client you should be able to see who called you and a few other nice features. You will also be charged 5 pound a year for the privilege.
Personally I have tried both SpinVox and Simulscribe and found Simulscribe to be a better service. At the same time I know a couple people who swear by SpinVox. I will try to back that up with a review soon.
London – SpinVox, the founder and global leader in Voice-to-Screen messaging, is making its specially-developed SpinVox for BlackBerry® plug-in available at www.spinvox.com/BlackBerry from today.
Adding SpinVox to BlackBerry brings the advantages of email delivery and configuration to voicemail – improving the experience for mobile, email-dependent BlackBerry users. With SpinVox for BlackBerry they can now receive all their voicemail messages converted to text and delivered as an email direct to their device, allowing them to see who called and what they said, then reply with just one click. Uniquely, SpinVox converts any caller’s voicemail into text – powered by the SpinVox Voice Message Conversion System (VMCS).
Importantly, SpinVox for BlackBerry ensures that the inbound caller’s number links up with the user’s address book to present the caller’s name, and the ability to reply directly by email, as an alternative to calling or sending an SMS.
“BlackBerry email delivers business efficiency and personal productivity,” says Christina Domecq, CEO and co-founder, SpinVox. “Adding SpinVox to the mix takes those benefits to the next level, eliminating the need to dial-in and check voicemail and making it simple and easy to check voice messages in the email format that BlackBerry addicts love.”
The launch comes after RIM executives trialled the SpinVox Voicemail product on their own BlackBerry phones and immediately saw the benefits of receiving their voice messages converted to email.
Users of the BlackBerry solution around the globe will also benefit from the SpinVox service which is currently available in English, Spanish, French and German.
New SpinVox Voicemail customers who choose to download the software application from www.spinvox.com/BlackBerry will be charged GBP 5.00 per year.
