As the world celebrates Earth Day 2007, a number of Canadian carriers and mobile content store fronts are introducing new lifelike "bird calls" that offer Canadians a more calming alternative to the standard trills and beeps of a mobile phone.
VeriSign's Intelligent Portal Services enables the next-generation mobile marketplace through customer branded mobile content and application storefronts for mobile carriers.
"We are helping Canadian carriers reach out to nature lovers, providing them with ring tones that reflect their interests and passions," said Aran Hamilton, Canadian regional vice president for VeriSign. "There is something fun and soothing about hearing the call of the sparrow in midst of the urban jungle."
The Earth Day release includes 13 bird calls -- from blue jays and blackbirds to roosters and owls -- and will soon be expanded to include other animals.
