ntouch Mobile Adds Support for Three Mobile Devices

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Sep 29, 2011) - Sorenson Communications today announced that ntouch® Mobile, Sorenson's mobile VRS solution, now supports the Samsung® Sidekick® 4G, Samsung Epic 4G with a data plan through Sprint® and the Samsung Galaxy S 4G with a data plan through T-Mobile®. The addition of these three devices brings to 10 the number of devices now supported by ntouch Mobile. The ntouch Mobile app is available at no cost to Sorenson users.

Sorenson Communications created ntouch Mobile as a communication solution for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals who wish to place and receive Sorenson VRS® (SVRS®) and point-to-point calls while on the go. With the forward-facing technology of Android® and iPhone® devices, it is now possible for deaf people to communicate in their native language -- sign language -- on a mobile device while away from their home videophones.

"Sorenson continues to be a leader in deaf communication," says Ricky Simmons, Sorenson product manager. "We continually strive to provide the most practical and reliable communication options to our customers. These include high-resolution video technology, user-friendly software interface and Video Relay Service."

To date, the ntouch Mobile app supports the following Android and iOS® mobile devices:

  • Samsung Epic 4G with a Sprint data plan
  • Samsung Galaxy S 4G with a T-Mobile data plan
