Sprint Offers Two New Hispanic Mobile Chat Communities

In an effort to target Hispanic mobile customers, Sprint Nextel is offering two new mobile chat communities to its customers. The first is called Chat del Mundo and allows users to create profiles, share pictures and video, and interact with each other worldwide. The service is available in Ecuador Colombia, Spain, Chile, Panama, Venezuela, Argentina and the U.S.A.

The second mobile Sprint is now offering is called “Mucha Chat,” and allows users to create profiles and search other users by location, age and description. Users may send each other messages at a cost of $0.50 per message sent.

These new offerings serve to complement Sprint's bilingual chat product, “Latino Lounge,” which the company launched earlier this year.
