Visto delivers wireless email to KPN in Europe, including support for Palm Tungsten W
Visto has signed an agreement with KPN Mobile to bring wireless email services to KPN customers in the Netherlands. KPN is the first carrier to offer customers wireless messaging services from Visto via the i-mode platform. This agreement also extends Visto's global market penetration for wireless email; Visto's wireless email is offered by leading wireless carriers in the United States, Canada, Asia, and Europe.

KPN customers already have access to Visto's wireless email technology to wireless subscribers through a new service called OfficeMode that allows users to access their office and Internet email from any i-mode device. KPN customers can benefit from Visto's MessageXpress wireless email service, enabling corporate or personal email to be received, composed and synchronized over the air to the desktop, via the new breed of smart phones, including the Palm Tungsten W.

KPN's OfficeMode is Visto's first wireless email service on the i-mode platform. OfficeMode uses Visto technology to provide mobile access to existing office email systems, such as Lotus Notes, Microsoft Exchange, or any POP3 email system so mobile users can access email, contacts and calendar from any i-mode enabled handheld device. KPN was the first licensee of NTT DoCoMo's i-mode outside of Japan and launched its i-mode service for the Netherlands in April 2002. OfficeMode is available on a growing range of i-mode browser compatible handsets, including devices from Mitsubishi, NEC, Nokia, and Siemens. KPN customers can access OfficeMode from i-mode phones, PDAs, and laptop computers.

KPN customers can also opt for Visto's MessageXpress as part of a package with the Palm Tungsten W. Customers who purchase a Palm Tungsten W PDA at selected outlets can immediately sign up for advanced wireless services over KPN, including MessageXpress email services. MessageXpress gives users of handheld devices like the Tungsten W access to corporate email from Lotus Notes or Microsoft Exchange, or access to POP3 Internet email including attachments. The advantage of MessageXpress is that it allows mobile users to maintain a single email address allowing them to access, manage, and synchronize email over a secure wireless link.
