Posted on 8-Jun-2005 17:21. | Tags Filed under: News.



Yahoo! Inc. and Sprint are launching a downloadable Yahoo! Mail client application that gives customers enhanced access to the e-mail experience on mobile devices. The new Yahoo! Mail for Mobile client is available to consumers in the USA on select Sprint devices.

The new Yahoo! Mail for Mobile client application gives consumers fast and easy access to their Yahoo! Mail account through a PC-like interface on a mobile device. The service allows consumers with select Sprint PCS Vision handsets to sign into and manage their Yahoo! Mail account from their phone, including, easy message management and access to their Yahoo! Address Book. The Yahoo! Mail client also gives Sprint customers storage for their e-mail on their handset, which means they can access their previously downloaded messages even when a data connection is not available. The service is US$2.99 a month, and can be purchased directly from the handset and will be charged on their monthly wireless bill. An optional feature of the Yahoo! Mail client is instant notification of new messages, with standard text messaging rates applying.

Through Yahoo! Mobile, Yahoo! focuses on extending key Yahoo! services beyond the desktop, providing an integrated PC-to-Mobile experience and helping consumers make the most of the mobile environment. As the number of consumers using mobile data services continues to grow rapidly, Yahoo! has rolled out mobile extensions of key services including Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo! Photos and Yahoo! Search across multiple carriers.

Yahoo! Mail for Mobile by Sprint will be initially available on the Sprint PCS Vision Multimedia Phone MM-A700 by Samsung, the Sprint PCS Vision Multimedia Phone MM-7400 by Sanyo, the Sprint PCS Vision Multimedia Phone MM-5600 by Sanyo, the Sprint PCS Vision Smart Device Treo 600 by palmOne and the Sprint PCS Vision Smart Device Treo 650 by palmOne.
