NEW YORK -- US wireless service provider Sprint Nextel (S:NYSE) has just entered into a patent license agreement with Klausner Technologies, Inc. for Sprint’s new Visual Voicemail service. The patent license also covers the Samsung Instinct cell phone, unveiled by Sprint and Samsung at the current CTIA wireless show in Las Vegas. The Samsung Instinct handset includes the Visual Voicemail feature.

Sprint Nextel is the seventh company to date to license the Klausner visual voicemail patents. Other licensees include ISP’s such as Time Warner’s (TWX:NYSE) AOL , VoIP providers such as Vonage Holdings, Inc. (VG:NYSE), and ASP’s such as Simulscribe and Simulsays for Blackberry (RIMM:NASDAQ).

Sprint was not a defendant in the pending patent infringement lawsuit brought by Klausner against Apple, Inc.(APPL:NASDAQ) for its iPhone Visual Voicemail. Other remaining defendants in the pending litigation include ATT, Inc. (T:NYSE), eBay (EBAY:NASDAQ) and Comcast Corporation (CMCSA:NASDAQ). Klausner is represented in the litigation by the law firm of Dovel & Luner.

“We are pleased to add Sprint Nextel to our growing list of licensees. Sprint’s Visual Voicemail service and Samsungs’s Instinct cell phone are excellent examples of our patented visual voice messaging technology, letting consumers view and select voice messages in a similar fashion to the way they view and select e-mails," said Judah Klausner, CEO of Klausner Technologies.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
