Turkcell launches MMS

Turkcell, the Turkish mobile operator, has launched MMS services, allowing users to send pictures, video and audio clips alongside ordinary text messages.

Turkish mobile operator, Turkcell, has launched MMS services after signing an infrastructure agreement with Ericsson.

The service was launched on July 17. Ericsson will also support Turkcell in developing content and applications.

"We are honoured that Turkcell has chosen Ericsson for supplying the MMS solution," said Halit Günes, head of Turkcell account and vice president of Ericsson Turkey. "This agreement proves Ericsson's capability to enable not only the first-class technology but also rich content and applications."

MMS enables users to send images as well as voice and video clips alongside the standard text message.
