Alltel Avatars “offers users hundreds of pre-produced greetings as well as templates to create their own greetings via user-generated content—users may add emoticons, personal audio clips and digital signatures, as well as animate images from their photos, complete with text or audio messages.”

The report said that Alltel Avatars are available across all of the carrier’s various video-enabled handsets, at least the ones that are optimized for 3GP playback. Electronic greetings start at 99 cents each. Alltel Avatars is powered by multimedia platform provider Vidiator.
