For snom phone users: Euro 2008 results ticker and prediction competition with 50 prizes

snom technology AG, developer and manufacturer of VoIP telephones that are based on the open SIP standard, is offering all users of its phones a cost-free results ticker, directly to their snom phone, to mark the European football championship. As an added option, snom is also organising a prediction competition with a total of 50 attractive prizes.

snom will provide the completely free Euro 2008 ticker plus the prediction competition in cooperation with the specialists at bevuta IT GmbH and Ciphron Advanced Security. The Euro 2008 service is available for all snom VoIP phones of the 300 series: 300, 320, 360 and 370. The football scores will be converted for each model in such a way that they suit optimally each individual display size. The only condition: snom users have to register for the service at snom.bevuta.com and, if necessary, download the latest firmware. Once this is done, the Euro 2008 service will appear in the menu of the snom phones, enabling football fans to keep track of the latest results or predict the outcome of matches.

First prize in the Euro 2008 prediction competitions is – what else? – a large table football game, sponsored by snom’s well-known “platinum distributor” Allnet. But football fans will find prizes 2 to 5 just as enjoyable: four Philips Perfect Draft Systems. Winners of prizes 6 to 10 will receive a Weber barbecue, without which no summer evening is complete. Winners of 11th to 20th prize will each receive a replica of the official Euro finals ball, while winners 21 to 50 can look forward to a 5-litre keg of beer each. Companies, too, can use the Euro 2008 prediction competition to stage in-house or department competitions. A so-called duel function has been specially developed and implemented for this. In this way, tipsters who don’t win the snom table football prize have a chance to become champion predictor in his or her office.

A partner of snom for years now, bevuta IT GmbH drew on its technological know-how to bring the Euro 2008 ticker to the snom VoIP telephones. bevuta had previously realised a snom World Cup ticker for the football world championship two years ago. The big innovation this year is this: with the World Cup ticker 2006, the user had to call up the results individually each time. But with the snom Euro 2008 ticker, the user only needs to turn the ticker on. The latest news from Euro 2008 will be automatically transmitted to his/her display.

snom’s partner, Ciphron Advanced Security, is behind the entirely new prediction competition for Euro 2008. Ciphron has structured the prediction competition like a classic football prediction competition. Three points are awarded for the correct result after 90 minutes, and one point for correctly predicting a victory, draw or defeat. There are no points if the prediction after 90 minutes is completely wrong. But to keep unlucky tipsters from giving up before the final, points can still be collected in another way. By answering questions on football and about snom correctly, it’s possible to give one’s Euro 2008 points score a considerable boast.
