Bango.net launches the first free SMS Competition Wednesday 29 November 2000 PDF Print Bango.net, developers of the Bango Number System for easy web and WAP access, announced today the first free SMS Internet competition to be launched in the UK. This unique coupling of SMS and WAP is set to revolutionise the way companies can communicate with consumers, and competitions are just one way. The winner of the Bango.net competition will receive an all expenses paid trip to Akihabara, the world famous electronics and computing shopping area of Tokyo. The competition, being run in conjunction with the December issue of T3, uses Bango.net's unique number access system to obtain a clue using SMS, which readers respond to for a chance of winning the star prize. Everyone that enters is a winner as they all receive a free Bango Number to use for a year. With your Bango Number you can bookmark your favourite web content or publish an SMS message from your phone that your mates can view from any WAP or html browser and catch up on the latest news. Peter Walker, VP marketing, Bango.net commented, "New technologies are opening up a myriad of opportunities. The innovative combination of WAP and SMS showcases how using multiple technologies can make the Internet more accessible and bring added benefits for users." The company's recently-launched Bango Number System is the first Internet web address system that is number rather than letter-based. Bango Numbers are used to pinpoint information on the world wide web, for example pages, text, graphics, mp3 and mpegs, and are ideal for mobile Internet users who would rather key numbers than long, complicated web addresses into telephones. The same number also works from PCs, web TV and other Internet devices. T3 highlights tomorrow's technology today and is a unique concoction of hi-tech and hi-style hardware, providing gadget lovers, technology fans and the design-conscious with a four-weekly fix of the cutting edge.
