Posted by at 11:18 am on June 2, 2009

Privus Mobile, which is designed to be one of the mobile phone industry’s most innovative applications, meets one of the industry’s most innovative operating systems, Android. Privus Mobile is the first real-time Caller ID solution for smartphones and has already helped thousands of Windows Mobile and BlackBerry users better manage their incoming calls. Similar to landline Caller ID, the mobile solution, now available in the Android Marketplace, allows you to see the full caller details of incoming calls, from unknown numbers to callers that aren’t in your contacts list, as the call comes in. After receiving the call, you can quickly and easily save Privus Mobile’s contact information to your phonebook with the press of a button.

“As more and more people replace their landline phone with their smartphone, more and more solicitors, telemarketers and creditors are replacing their landline contact lists with cell phone number lists. While one could simply not answer the phone, the risk of missing an emergency phone call is just too high when it’s the only way to get in touch with you,” said Greg Smith, Privus Mobile’s president. “Privus Mobile gives Android users a way to switch from their landlines without sacrificing the features they’ve come to know and depend on like Caller ID.”

With users reporting accurate calling information for more than 95 percent of their incoming calls, Privus Mobile actually improves the level of Caller ID service when compared to landline users. On average, landline phone bills include a $10 monthly fee for Caller ID, nearly double the monthly cost of Privus Mobile. A free trial of the service is available as an over-the-air download in the Android Marketplace. The application also can be purchased from the Android Marketplace for only $59.95 for a full year. Additionally, Privus Mobile is available for Windows Mobile and BlackBerry devices through Handango, Handmark, Privus Mobile’s Web site, the BerryStore and BlackBerry App World. Privus Mobile’s iPhone application, iPrivus, is available at the App Store.
