AT&T Mobility is taking aim squarely at Sprint Nextel's remaining iDEN subscribers by announcing the full availability of its Enhanced Push-to-Talk offering as well as new smartphones for the service.
AT&T Mobility appears to be preparing to take its Enhanced Push-to-Talk offering nationwide in November. The action could position AT&T to more effectively capture Sprint Nextel's remaining iDEN subscribers due to Sprint's decision to shutter its iDEN network by next year.
AT&T Mobility said it is doubling the number of business push-to-talk users in its trials for its Enhanced PTT service, which it expects to make commercially available later this year.
AT&T Mobility ( NYSE:T ) launched a new charter program to deploy enhanced push-to-talk services primarily aimed at enterprises.
