Samsung unveils ChatON service to compete with iMessage, BBM, and others
By bbsbuzz - Tue Aug 30, 8:53 am
Samsung has announced that it will be rolling out a new messaging service that will allow users to chat across multiple devices. ChatON will be offered in over 120 countries in 62 languages. The service supports photos, video, voice messaging, location, contact sharing, calendar, and other multimedia content. The interesting part is that Samsung is looking to take ChatON outside its own ecosystem.
The service will be supported on all major platforms according to Samsung. That includes tablets, feature phones, the PC, and Bada. The service will support group chat, direct linking between specific buddies, and it will have an interaction rank. That last one ranks the users based on how often they interact with you as far as I can make out.
