Vodafone live! is much more than just a new WAP portal. Unlike other mobile technologies, with Vodafone live! the services and offerings available on the mobile handset are highly integrated. Vodafone live! is based on a special technology that requires major adjustments to mobile phones and networks. It provides all enabled mobiles with a uniform, easy-to-follow menu system based on the portal structure. The standard design concept is continued here, too: all services can be accessed in just a few clicks, and users always navigate in a standard environment. This, combined with clearly structured menus featuring easy-to-understand icons, make accessing functions child's play.
As the world's largest provider of mobile telecommunications, Vodafone launched this mobile multimedia portal in eight European countries in October 2002. It is now available in 13 countries and is used by more than three million people: one million in German-speaking countries alone. Vodafone live! has also received official acclaim: at the GSM Association Awards in February 2003, the Sharp GX10 was voted the best mobile phone and the solution was rated the best mobile application.
