Microsoft and AT&T Wireless to give access to MSN through mMode
Posted on 23-Nov-2003 11:06 | Tags Filed under: News



AT&T Wireless and MSNannounced a strategic alliance that will enable consumers to subscribe to MSN Mobile services delivered through their AT&T Wireless' mMode-capable phones throughout the United States by the end of the year. The deal will give AT&T Wireless customers mobile access to MSN network content, their MSN Hotmail e-mail accounts, MSN Messenger and other offerings as a premium paid service.

mMode brings together e-mail, Internet-based content, games and more, all in one place on the mobile phone. Unveiled earlier this week, and now powered by a new EDGE network, a newly enhanced version of mMode features a more user-friendly design and interface, powerful personalization tools, exclusive navigation features, and a host of new applications for daily use in a mobile environment.

"Thanks to this new agreement with Microsoft, mMode customers will soon benefit from the richness of services provided by MSN," said Sam Hall, vice president of mMode services at AT&T Wireless. "It's clear to us that customers are looking for a simple way to access MSN services while on the go, and together with Microsoft, we'll be delivering that capability across dozens of handsets in the weeks ahead."

MSN Mobile provides users with wireless access to core MSN two-way communication applications and notifications on a range of mobile devices, from basic text-messaging phones to mMode-enabled phones. MSN Mobile services available to AT&T Wireless subscribers include the following:

MSN Hotmail: allows subscribers to read and reply to messages and receive mobile alerts when important e-mail arrives
MSN Messenger: allows users to chat wirelessly with family and friends virtually anywhere
MSN Mobile Web: enables a mobile device to browse MSN for weather, news, sports, horoscopes and other information
MSN Calendar: provides one-way mobile alerts for important dates such as birthdays and anniversaries
MSN Alerts: delivers customized alerts for weather, news, sports, stocks, traffic, horoscopes and more
