Palo Alto, Calif., Jan 28, 2009 - Aricent™, a global innovation, technology and services company focused exclusively on the communications industry, today announced its role in the joint development of the new Sprint One Click, a simple yet innovative user interface designed to offer Sprint customers instant access to the information and entertainment they want.
Aricent's global innovation arm frog design, along with its communications applications and mobile device practice, partnered closely with Sprint to integrate strategic planning, front-end design, software development and engineering into one concurrent end-to-end process that brought One Click to market in less than 10 months. The resulting interface provides a consistent user experience across a range of Sprint's consumer-friendly wireless phones and adds significant value to customers.
With a customizable carousel design, One Click allows users to customize their phones to get one-touch access to the things they use the most including text messages, Email, navigation, Web access, Google, music, entertainment and more. Not only can users access what they need right away, they get to choose what and where it all goes. One Click is yet another example of how Sprint gives customers instant access to the right products, services and information delivered through the power and speed of the Now Network.
One Click is available initially on the Samsung Rant, Samsung Highnote, LG Lotus and Sanyo Eclipse.
"Our collaboration with Sprint allowed us to bring both innovation and usability to their customers," said Sanjay Dhawan, President and COO Aricent.
