You wake up one morning and see the Company’s name in the paper and begin wondering where did they hear about it and then from the back lanes of memory ( and in this case a reminder from the PR agency!) you realise …aha! this is from that press statement we made a month or so ago (read my post of August 5). Thats the beauty and bane of working in a company with the motto of embracing change and innovating fast!
Surprise over…lets get back to the real story. With mobile users getting more savy and demanding one needs to keep innovating and coming up with service offerings that are out of the box, entertaining, informative and ” user friendly”.

This story in Financial Express has featured our Video Ring Back and Ring Forwad Tones, our allinace with Vringo and more. Click here to read more.
