DALLAS (PRESS RELEASE – May 6, 2009) – AT&T* today announced that it has added a new “Send to Mobile” feature to att.net, making it easy for customers to push content from the Web portal to their AT&T mobile devices. AT&T’s wireless customers can register for a free att.net account, which includes e-mail with unlimited storage. From that account, they can push links to content like news, weather, sports and entertainment to supported mobile devices. Customers also can add links to quickly access the mobile versions of popular sites like Facebook, MySpace, Fandango, ESPN and more.
The Send to Mobile feature on att.net is another way in which AT&T is delivering the content and services customers want on the devices they choose, including PCs, TVs and wireless handsets.
“Att.net is evolving to become the one place our customers can go to manage all their AT&T services and access content and applications for any of their devices,” said Brian Shay, Senior Vice President-Converged Services, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “Our goal is to deliver an integrated, easy-to-use experience that will make the benefits of our three-screens strategy even more evident to consumers.”
“Three-screens integration is emerging as a transformational force in communications and entertainment,” said Larry Hettick, Principal Analyst, Digital Home Services, for Current Analysis. “Consumers are already beginning to ask for all their digital content whenever they want it on the device they choose. Service providers who move first to deliver consumers an integrated three-screen option will have a definite advantage.”
AT&T wireless customers can register for a free att.net account at http://get.att.net.
