Mobile content and applications developer mPortal has created an iPhone app for US operator Comcast. The app provides key features of Comcast Digital Voice, Digital Cable, and High-Speed Internet services to iPhone and iPod touch devices.
The app enables users to check Comcast email and listen to home voicemail in one combined inbox; read, reply, forward and compose email, and read attachments supported by the iPhone; manage voicemail messages and call logs; and forward home phone calls to the iPhone from the iPhone. The app also includes a TV guide, and offers access to video-on-demand movie trailers.
The Comcast mobile iPhone and iPod touch applications demonstrate true convergence in mobile, offering Comcast customers a very convenient portal for accessing voice, data, email and video services at their fingertips, says J. Gerry Purdy, Vice President and Chief Analyst of the Mobile and Wireless Group at Frost & Sullivan. There are more opportunities to bring other cable operators and media companies into mobile, and mPortal is well positioned to assist them.
mPortal enables service providers, content providers and enterprises to create, deploy and monetize content and applications across mobile networks and devices. The companys SPRINGBOARD suite of products is comprised of a configurable software client solution and a mobile content delivery manager that provides an end-to-end solution for easy discovery, download, purchase and delivery of content and applications.
