Real announced at the CTIA conference it will supply wireless operators with multimedia ringback tones. The Multimedia ringback tone takes the very popular musical ringback tone service to a whole different dimension, from the audio space to the visual video clip arena. It allows you to set a video clip to entertain your callers while waiting you answer their call.
"Building upon Real’s pioneering success in Ringback Tones (RBTs), Real is making Multimedia Ringback (MRB) Services available to mobile operators around the world. This new 3G mobile service—first launched with Korea’s SK Telecom earlier this year—ushers in a new level of personalization in RBTs, allowing subscribers to incorporate audio, images and video to deliver a unique, customized experience to callers before they are connected."
