Samsung to Introduce ChatON, A Multi-platform Multimedia Messaging Service

Samsung has decided to enter the mobile messaging arena with a new app called ChatON, that will surely be introduced at this week’s IFA conference in Berlin.  ChatON will be a multi-platform app, which means it will not be a Samsung-only chatting tool, but will also be available to other Android handsets as well as Blackberries and iDevices.  Similar to BBM, users will be able to share images, videos, and perform group chats in 62 languages.

I’m just wondering why the Google Talk team won’t introduce these same features?  Life with Android would be one step closer to being complete if GTalk would get an update other than video chatting.

    I’ve been using a chat/sms app called kakao talk.  Another multi-platform chat.  I guess you can stop worrying about monthly text messaging limit with these apps (if you have unlimited data plan).

    I’ve always believed that charging extra for text (as well as charging for received text), extra for multimedia message was so stupid.  Rather take my minutes away.

    I want to show some appreciation to this writer for bailing me out of this dilemma. Because of looking out throughout the world wide web and meeting notions which were not pleasant, I believed my entire life was done. Existing devoid of the answers to the difficulties you’ve solved as a result of this blog post is a serious case, and the ones that might have negatively affected my entire career if I had not come across your site. Your primary understanding and kindness in controlling every part was invaluable. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come upon such a subject like this. I can also at this moment relish my future. Thank you so much for your skilled and sensible guide. I will not hesitate to recommend the sites to anybody who should have support on this topic.

    Back to the subject of this post…. why would I use this over just texting someone?

    Also, I have to give Samsung credit. They’re doing something for Android that makes the iPhone undeniably successful. They’re making the Android experience a little more well rounded and complete. They’re making a device complete. I know, I know, TouchWiz to the users like us is abominable but to people who just want a phone, its complete. Its set. Take the Galaxy Tab for example. I like vanilla Android as much as the next guy but when you pay $500 for something, it would be nice for it to feel like an original product and not a generic Android device. Cue the TouchWiz update that arguably improved it. The only other project I’ve seen work this hard is the MIUI custom rom.

    This looks exactly like ‘Whatsapp’. Have exact same functionalities (like BBM’s msg rcvd confirmation) and been in existence for the past few years. Except in addition to BBOS, iOS, and Android, it also supports Symbian^3, Symbian Anna, S60, and S40. Theres other additional share features like location and contact share. Ironically only thing it’s missing is video chat.

    T-mobile background in “DROID” -life……irony much?

    • Mr.Joe

      More like SELL OUT.  

      • http://www.facebook.com/objection89 Miguel Angel Portela

        Sell out? Its a way to pay for the site. Droid-Life (as far as I know) doesn’t ask for donations. The site has to be maintained somehow…

          Yeah but you notice how all the optional red and black elements (vzw reference colors) are removed? The TMo fuscia theme goes even to the link txt and logo now. Even TMo news don’t have it this complete. Merger time heh?

        • AJ Blumenthal

          People take blogs like DL for granted.  This is DROID-life, not Verizon.  Sure, there has been opinion thrown around here and T-Mobile isn’t trying to stop that. But if you’re T-Mobile, and you sell Droids, and your target reads about Droids….seems like an easy site to want to advertise on, no?  Good for you guys (DL) in making this blog a profitable site and bringing attention across manufacturers, carriers and developers.
          let the haters hate

          props

    • Mr.Joe

      Samsung is going to get sued for this…

  • Mr.Joe

    Also, what’s with all these T Mobile ads?  DL background=Tmobile, two animated banners = Tmobile.  Is someone trying to get us to switch the the nations largest true 4G network?

    • EC8CH

      Droid-Life has ads? 

      Adblock ftw

      • Blood

        Thank You. :)

      • http://www.facebook.com/michaeljmcgrath Michael McGrath

        id rather support kellex and deal with the ads… (for now)

    • Mrpicolas

      How you think the bills get paid????

      • Mr.Joe

        By advertising products that you write about.  Does DL write about Tmobile stuff?  I don’t think so.  

        • C8503

          yeah T-Mobile should spend their $$ advertising to their existing customer base.

          its shocking you’re not VZW CEO already

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/RXFWXDUWRRHCGFV6NP2SDZ7YLU Ray

      its called paying the bills

  • Mr.Joe

    It doesn’t need the extra t.  Ch@ would have said it all.  Also, what’s with the rank?  Does everything need to be ranked these days?

  • Zebra

    So how is this any different then any of the other various multi platform chat apps?

    • http://www.facebook.com/objection89 Miguel Angel Portela

      The difference is that it’ll probably be free. Plus it looks kinda nice.
