The DAT Group PLC and Dangaard Telecom have announced a new mobile email service, Tabella LP. The objective is to develop and market a new mobile email solution specifically designed to match the market demand for managed mobile messaging solutions.
DAT provides device management solutions to manufacturers, mobile operators, distributors and retailers and offers both software product and custom solutions. Dangaard Telecom is Europe’s largest distributor in the telecommunications industry and in FY 2002/2003 achieved revenues of €1.2 billion.
The new service is aimed at enterprise users and professional consumers who want their emails delivered to devices running Windows Mobile software.
The service is centred on the Tabella system which incorporates essential personal information management features with leading edge device control that is essential for corporate phones. As well as having full push-email, calendar and contact information, users will also be able to manage their device from a Tabella web portal. The portal will allow easy setup of multiple email accounts, upload backgrounds, ring tones and have inherent security features such as the ability to send a signal to lost phones that locks them and prevents unauthorised use.
The Tabella system will launch on the Motorola MPx, a Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition in design that allows users to enter information via a QWERTY keyboard or touch screen.
