Cingular Releases Mobile Email and IM Programs for Mobile
Posted on 25-Oct-2005 10:00. | Tags Filed under: News.



Cingular Wireless has announced the availability of two services covering mobile communications. Mobile Email and Mobile IM will give Cingular customers access to their existing email or IM accounts from AOL, MSN and Yahoo! through a set of applications which can be accessed through a standard mass market phone.

Both the Mobile Email and Mobile IM applications are available for free on a download basis through the Cingular MEdia Mall to Cingular customers who have a compatible phone. These new applications will give Cingular customers pre- configured access to their email and IM accounts without the need to be tethered to their desktop or having to purchase a high-end, PDA-like device.

The email programs were developed by OZ and involve a simple two-step initial login process. Customers will then use the service with graphically rich email experience with a PC look-and-feel directly from their phones.

Currently, Mobile Email is available for many of the most popular Motorola devices-the V180, V220, V400, V551 and RAZR V3. More compatible handsets will be added soon.

With Mobile IM, Cingular customers have simultaneous access to all three major IM communities (AOL's AIM service, Yahoo! Messenger and MSN Messenger). Mobile IM features a tabbed interface with one-click switching between all three IM communities.

Developed with Comverse and Thumbspeed, The Mobile IM service delivers a full-color, graphical interface that allows customers to send and receive instant messages, as well as check the availability of friends online.

The Mobile IM service is currently available for a wide range of popular Nokia (6230, 6620), Motorola (V180, V220, V400, V551, RAZR V3) and Sony Ericsson (Z500 and S710a) handsets.

According to the company there are no additional monthly fees required to use Cingular's new services. Customers just pay kilobyte usage charges for Mobile Email, or a per message charge for IMs.
