MSN Mobile services to be included with Openwave software
Openwave Systems and MSN announced an agreement to bring MSN Mobile services to mobile operators and handset vendors worldwide. The companies have built and are including MSN Mobile software in the Openwave Phone Suite V7 phone software platform. With the solution, handset manufacturers will be able to rapidly add MSN Mobile software, including MSN Hotmail and MSN Messenger, to their V7 device portfolio, and mobile operators now will have the ability to deliver these communications services to their subscribers.

"The MSN vision is to bring consumers anytime, anyplace access to the people and information that matter most; MSN Mobile plays a critical role here as we work to make this vision a reality," said Brian Arbogast, corporate vice president of MSN Communications Platforms. "MSN is thrilled to work with Openwave and, ultimately, mobile operators to bring leading MSN communications services to a broad range of wireless users. With Openwave's rich V7 platform and broad applicability to mass market phones, and rich MSN communications services and loyal customers, we believe we can provide a great opportunity for mobile operators to drive more wireless data usage."

Openwave's phone software is currently shipping in half a billion phones and supports more than 600 phone platforms.

Mobile operators that select MSN Mobile services on V7 could reach a share of the MSN customer base, which includes 145 million MSN Hotmail customers and 110 million MSN Messenger customers worldwide. MSN Mobile for V7 brings MSN services to life wirelessly virtually anywhere with a user interface that is rich, intuitive and familiar for consumers used to accessing these services from their PC including these:

  • MSN Hotmail. MSN Hotmail for MSN Mobile enables consumers to access their inbox online and offline; include text, images or sound in their e-mail messages; and receive personalized alerts for designated e-mail messages.
  • MSN Messenger. MSN Messenger for MSN Mobile enables consumers to stay visible online to their contacts, be alerted when their contacts want to communicate via instant messaging, and carry on simultaneous or multiparty conversations at one time.

    Seven out of the top 10 phone manufacturers have licensed and plan to utilize V7 with phones scheduled to ship during this year. The suite consists of upgrades to Openwave Mobile Browser and Openwave Mobile Messaging Client, as well as Openwave File and Application Manager, Real Networks' RealOne Mobile Player and now MSN Mobile including MSN Hotmail and MSN Messenger.
