It's been a hot minute since we've seen a new creation emerge from the labs of Ambient Devices
, but for the products that are evidently coming down the pike in 2009, we can expect one more feature to be included above the status quo. The new InTouch Text messaging service will enable Ambient products to receive and display important messages, greetings and reminders from owners via SMS, email or the web. As with everything this company does, the message integration will be seamless and easy to use, with a simple InTouch Logo button lighting up to signify that a message is waiting. Of course, phone calls, texts and Hallmark cards could certainly serve the same purpose, but where's the joy in that?
