The Android OS-powered T-Mobile G1 has high aspirations. The first Android smartphone has its sight set on displacing the iPhone and iPhone 3G as the “gotta-have” touchscreen smartphone this holiday season. But, neither Android OS nor the T-Mobile G1 has an answer for the iPhone’s Visual Voicemail feature. Until now.
Visual Voicemail allows the user to see a graphical representation of their voicemail inbox, sorted chronologically by caller. The strength of visual voicemail lies is that it allows the user to actually see how many voicemails are waiting to be heard and from which caller each voicemail originated. Users can decide which voicemail messages are worth listening to and which can be left to review later.
Now, thanks to the creative developers at PhoneFusion, the Android platform and the T-Mobile G1 can now proudly say that they have Visual Voicemail capability. PhoneFusion will debut their Visual Voicemail application before the end of 2008, bringing Android users “the ability to centralize all of their voicemail boxes and see – right on the screen of their Android-powered mobile device – a list of their voicemail messages.”
Look for PhoneFusion‘s Visual Voicemail application on the Android Market by year’s end.
Full press release after the break.
