PhoneFusion Releases Beta Version of Visual Voicemail for Android Smartphones

Fusion Voicemail Plus™ Beta Now Available on Android Market; Users Can Centralize Multiple Voicemail Boxes and Prioritize Important Messages Right on Their Android Devices

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - November 24, 2008) - PhoneFusion™, an innovative provider of reliable, hosted communications solutions, announced today the availability of the beta version of Fusion Voicemail Plus™ for Android smartphones. This is the only visual voicemail application available to Android smartphone users. The company recently previewed the application at the Under the Radar: Mobility event. Due to overwhelming response from the Android community, PhoneFusion sped up the development process and is releasing the beta version of this free visual voicemail application weeks ahead of schedule on Android Market.

With voicemail at home, work and on a wireless device, it's not uncommon for people to have three or more voicemail boxes to maintain. PhoneFusion's Fusion Voicemail Plus service provides 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 in one place. The service also allows users to listen to their voicemails directly from their smartphone. A new, patent-pending technology displays Caller ID Name on each voicemail, even if the information isn't already saved in the users' phonebooks.

The iPhone-like visual voicemail application is already available on any cell phone network in the United States for BlackBerry devices as well as smartphones running on Windows Mobile 5 and 6. Fusion Voicemail Plus provides a faster, more efficient way to listen to voicemail messages in the order people want, rather than dialing multiple voicemail systems and listening to the messages in chronological order.

"After previewing Fusion Voicemail Plus for Android smartphones, we received an overwhelming amount of interest from the Android community," said Louis Libin, chief executive officer, PhoneFusion. "Our PhoneFusion development team has worked around-the-clock to get a beta version of the application ready for use. Stay tuned as we will continue roll out additional functionality in the next few weeks, showing PhoneFusion's commitment to enhancing the user experience beyond a mobile device's limits."

Based on early feedback from the Android community, PhoneFusion enhanced the look and feel of Fusion Voicemail Plus before releasing the beta version to the public. As the company works to enhance the product, PhoneFusion's engineering team welcomes feedback. Please send comments on the application to androidfeedback@phonefusion.com.
