Yea! This is pretty sweet! Singular started doing this in the states, so I was waiting for Bell or Rogers to follow, and now Rogers has.
Rogers is now selling the Nokia 6682RVI with Talks software! I hear you now. And this means exactly what? Talks software has been around for a while. You install it on the phone and it will read the menus, caller ID, all things on the screen, audibly. So suddenly, all those cool and wacky features of a cell phone are opened up and made available to people who can’t read that print on the cell phone screen. This software, on its own, costs about $300 U.S. and then you had to buy the phone. So as keen as I was on having this stuff, it was out of my price range.
But now, rogers is selling a phone bundled with the software for $200 if you sign a 3-year term! Yea! Guess who’s asking some hard questions about whether or not they can upgrade their phone? *grins from ear to ear* I’m such a geek.
I just thought others might be interested, so there it is.
