Yesterday whilst at a university open day, there was a brief mention of where mobile phones could be headed with a much more â€œpeer to peerâ€ approach, with devices retransmitting the data to get to a base station. Those of you with certain devices (quite often AT&T branded HTC devices like the Touch Pro) will probably have Push To Talk or similar enabling you to communicate with devices without going through a network (much like walkie-talkies) and this is what Wavelink Communicator does, but using WiFi.
Wavelink Communicator is a 100% client-side push-to-talk solution aimed at enhancing on-the-floor communication for any organization
Pretty cool stuff if you ask me, and could well be useful in organisations with large numbers of staff in fairly close proximity (warehouses etc).
Itâ€™s available for free here, and should run on any Windows based platform (Mobile, CE and even Desktops).
