Orange Launching Push To Talk

Over in the UK, Orange is getting set to be the first European carrier to launch a push-to-talk solution. They’ll also be the first GSM carrier around to offer push-to-talk, though there’s been the Fastchat PTT software client, that users could use if they wanted to avoid specific carriers altogether. Still, I’m curious as to how well the “new” PTT offerings have been doing. There was so much hype about them before they launched, and we haven’t heard much at all from Verizon Wireless or Sprint PCS concerning the typical “success” stories about adoption rates.
