Voicemail specialist Mobeon has launched a 3G video voicemail solution in partnership with Ericsson.

Voicemail specialist Mobeon has launched a 3G video voicemail solution in partnership with Ericsson.

With users of its service being able to project their facial expressions and body language, Mobeon said voicemail messages are less likely to be misinterpreted.

Research has suggested that 80% of communication is via body language.

Users receiving video voicemail messages will also be able to choose their personal greetings for callers, which could include a TV clip or a celebrity greeting, said Mobeon.

Robert Vangstad, vice-president of marketing at Mobeon, said, “We already have three operators that have expressed an interest in incorporating our ‘video mail’ into their 3G services, and the system will be available to users this summer.”

The solution is based on two main components - the Ericsson Messaging over IP (MoIP) system, and the Ericsson Video Gateway System.

The MoIP solution is powered by Mobeon’s IP-based messaging software. Ericsson owns 40% of Mobeon.
