Alltel Offering Office Sync Mobile E-mail for Palm and Windows Mobile

Posted on 19-Apr-2006 11:21 | Filed under: News


American operator Alltel is launching Office Sync, a service that allows users to send and receive e-mail in real time from their Palm OS and Windows Mobile devices.

Office Sync also enables customers to view their calendars and contacts while on the go.

The service is initially available on the Palm Treo 650 and the UTStarcom PPC-6700, a Windows Mobile 5.0 Wi-Fi-enabled Pocket PC device. Both devices are equipped with an Intel processor, backlit QWERTY keyboard and Bluetooth Wireless Technology.

There are two versions of Office Sync, available for individuals and small businesses. The Personal Edition delivers e-mail, calendars and contacts from the customer's personal desktop to a smart device. For larger businesses, the Enterprise Server Edition integrates Office Sync with a corporate server operating behind a secure firewall to deliver the information to customers' devices.

Both editions are available from Alltel for US$39.99 per month, including unlimited data.

Office Sync is powered by SEVEN, a global provider of software that enables mobile operators, Internet e-mail providers and service providers to offer their subscribers secure, low-cost, real-time access to business and personal e-mail applications.
