    Looks like every carrier is getting in the ptt game, DOrA for Sprint and Vzw better step up. Kodiak works off network, doesn’t it?

    the kodiak PTT is actually not the first clientless push to talk application. Palringo ( has been offering a mobile IM client that includes IM chat, push to talk and picture messaging. simply download the palringo client onto your device (ANY network), tell your friends to sign up a well (again, on ANY network) and you can instantly share messages, pictures and chat to them anytime

    Yes, but it is the first carrier-endorsed PTT solution that is clientless. Anyone can make a “clientless” anything. Until it’s supported by a carrier, it’s not going to have a sustainable following.

    Will the Kodiak solution be able to interact directly with the other ptt’s or is it making a backdoor thru the net?

    The MetroPCS bridge only works with other Kodiak-based providers. As noted in the article, that includes AT&T, US Cellular, and Alltel.
