Telstra and Microsoft in business initiative including Windows Mobile Phone Edition and Smartphone
Australian businesses will have a suite of new wireline and wireless services at their disposal to improve productivity and reduce costs under a joint Telstra-Microsoft initiative announced today. The regional partnership will link the latest wireless and managed solutions to Telstra's fixed and mobile networks as well as Microsoft's innovative smartphones.

The initiatives include:

  • Australia's first release of a range of i-Mate mobile devices that run Microsoft's Windows Mobile 2003 Platform including the Microsoft Smartphone 2003 and Pocket PC Phone Edition 2003. The GPRS devices include camera and high-resolution colour screen and are expected to be available from December this year.
  • A Telstra hosted Microsoft Exchange 2003 email, calendar and scheduling solution for medium businesses and small corporate customers. This is expected to be available from December this year and customers can access the service from their desktop or over a wireless connection using a laptop or Smartphone.
  • Wireless extensions to a range of Microsoft's most popular business applications such as Outlook, Great Plains and Microsoft's soon to be released Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution.

    Telstra's wholly owned subsidiary, Hong Kong CSL and Microsoft recently announced the planned deployment of mobile Web services and hosted mail solutions on a variety of wireless devices including Microsoft Exchange and hosted at Telstra's data centre in Sydney. The product development and trial work undertaken by CSL and Microsoft in Hong Kong allowed Telstra to leverage the experience for the launch of these new business solutions in Australia.

    Pricing for the packages include single monthly flat rates of AU$110 (Microsoft Smartphone 2003), AU$120 (Pocket PC Phone Edition 2003) over 24 months, which includes the device and unlimited data usage. In addition, Telstra recently announced a AU$150 package over 24 months, which includes the device and data usage over Telstra's CDMA 1x or Telstra Wireless Hotspots networks.
