The company detailed its reasoning for the new product via press release: "One of the truly horrible experiences for business travelers is arriving at a destination after a long flight, turning on your handheld device and getting deluged with voicemails and emails stored up while you were out of touch in the air," said Christina Domecq, CEO of SpinVox. "Therefore, we heartily applaud these recent connectivity milestones and are delighted to be able to offer travelers on U.S. flights a way to stay in touch through combining the two most popular methods of communication email and voicemail and so ensure they are able to receive and act on voice messages while flying."
Recently, major US air carriers such as American Airlines and Delta have announced intentions to deploy Wi-Fi across their fleets, allowing passengers access to email, text messages and the internet. Additional airlines have all announced similar intentions, though the implementation dates vary. The SpinVox voice-to-text service is currently available to Alltel and Cincinnati Bell subscribers or by visiting www.uReach.com/SpinVox.
