Nextel launches push e-mail service for Java-based mobile phones
Posted on 24-May-2005 08:33 | Tags Filed under: News



Nextel Communications Inc. and Visto Corporation launched the Mobile Email Enhanced, an e-mail service for Java-enabled mobile phones with full synchronization and what they claim to be a PDA-like feel. Mobile Email Enhanced pairs ConstantSync, Visto's wireless synchronization technology, with an application running on the phone to provide real-time access to email, contact lists, and calendars.

The push e-mail solution allows over-the-air e-mail delivery to the phone without any interaction from the user. Nextel Mobile Email Enhanced works in tandem with Microsoft Outlook, IBM Lotus Notes and most Internet email accounts such as Earthlink and Yahoo!.

Nextel Mobile Email Enhanced has been designed to satisfy the needs of IT Managers who require a "behind the firewall solution" and the small business owner for whom simple installation and ease of management are critical. Small business users can quickly download and install the Nextel Desktop Assistant without the need of an IT Department. Larger businesses and enterprises should use the Visto Mobile Enterprise Server (VMES) - Nextel is providing the server software at no charge to lower the total cost of ownership.

The service is available on all Java-based Nextel phones, including the recently released Motorola i605, i355 and i275, and will be available for new phones as they launch.

Nextel offers the service in three different plans, from US$14.99 for 2MB of data/month, to US$29.99 for unlimited Mobile Email Enhanced service and unlimited data access, 120 multimedia messages, unlimited text messaging and wireless web browsing.
