RECORD LABELS GO WIRELESS TO GET THE MESSAGE OUT

Published on .

(July 16, 2001) -- Five record labels have signed on to use wireless technology from Upoc, a New York-based developer of community-focused mobile technologies.

The record labels include Capitol Records, Columbia Records Group, Sony's Epic Records Group and Virgin Records America. The companies can use Upoc's technology to deliver text and audio messages from musicians to cell phones, pagers and wireless handheld devices.

Upoc anticipates that acts including Destiny's Child, Fuel, Janet Jackson and Radiohead will make use of the service. -- Catharine P. Taylor
