Orange go PushToTalk

Orange go PushToTalk The UK has now got its first “Push To Talk” service, courtesy of Orange. Although at present it’s only available on the Treo 600 handset, it’s a great new service which will be rolled out to other handsets soon (no news on Windows Mobile ones though).

PushToTalk (which is also known as “push-to-talk over cellular (PoC)” or “TalkNow” on Orange) will basically turn your mobile phone into a walkie-talkie. It’s like a voice version of a text message. You record a message, then send it out to a ‘buddy’ or a group of “buddies” in a conference, up to 10.
