, Sprint announces the Push-to-X features in addition to the current Nextel Direct Connect. This will result in giving customers new options to communicate via the fastest and largest push-to-talk service. These include push-to-send voice messages to any email address, with NextMail, and push-to-send pictures or contact info with Direct Send. As Sprint announced earlier this year, it will introduce new phones that support the network. That will allow for new features which could include push-to-text, push-to-locate, push-to-information designed to strengthen the concept of one-touch communications.
