Emblaze Ltd. is launching emoze, a free and secure push-email and PIM service. With emoze Personal Edition, anyone with a compatible mobile phone can receive work or home emails and Personal Information Manager (PIM) data such as contacts and diary scheduling on their mobile phone or PDA on the move.
As a push-email service, emoze will automatically push emails and PIM data to a phone as soon as it is received without users having to pro-actively connect to a service on a schedule.
To use emoze all users need to have is an email account and a compatible device; the company says the interface will be familiar to anyone who has used a traditional email program.
The emoze application currently works with Microsoft Windows Mobile Pocekt PC or Symbian device with a GPRS or other data connection, and with POP3 and online email services such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Gmail.
Emblaze says it has plans to soon release emoze for Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes Domino servers without the need of PC based on-line software, and also provide support for Palm devices, Mac OS X and Linux platforms.
The service is available on any wireless network including 2.5G and 3G such as WCDMA/UMTS, CDMA2000, 802.xx, Wi-Max, GPRS (2.5G), EDGE, CDMA 1xRTT, CDMA 1xEVDO and many others.
In terms of security, the company says there are no “cookies”, no “spyware” and no duplication of user data on emoze servers. For corporate users, emoze does not require the opening of new ports, thus preventing hacking vulnerability. All emoze transmissions and messaging is encrypted.
