The Next Nextel

The concept behind Nextel was to make talking faster and simpler—and it worked. Nextel made the walkie-talkie integral to business. Now, with Sprint set to phase out the original service by 2013, people are looking for something new.

Meet Zello, a simple business solution and a popular consumer app. Zello brings instant click-talk to you on a wider range of phones, at a lower price, on any network all over the world.

Say, “Hello” to Zello.
