Do you remember V2R's Caller2Picture which was the first available Caller ID for Pocket PCs and Smartphones? Now, V2R released its C2P in version 3 for Smartphone with lots of new features and I was happy enough to play with it for several weeks already, since its early Beta.
Caller2Picture for Smartphone adds more fun to your Microsoft's Windows Powered Smartphone and increase the usability by adding pictures, ringtones and now also animated backgrounds to the standard call notification window.
While the standard Smartphone platform devices notifies incoming calls with the caller name, company and phone number (if available from the contacts database) only, Caller2Picture adds an additional image and a specific ring tone of the contact to the information, displayed on the Smartphone screen.
Caller2Picture v3.0 for Smartphone is fast, easy-to-use and comes with a new and improved interface that has new functionalities that will make your incoming calls look more interesting.
Caller2Picture is based on V2Rs Intelligence2Interface i-2-i technology (which is also used by O2 for the Xda II as O2 Active User Interface) and therefore allows you to be used in the most intuitive and easy way. V2R i-2-1 technology becomes the basic user interface for all V2R products in the future to give the user all advantages of the enhanced graphic displays for Windows Mobile devices.
