3 UK Introduces Mobile E-mail Service and QTEK 9000 Pocket PC Device
3 UK has announced a new package for small office/home office (SOHO) customers and SMEs offering access to email on the move. This is the first time that the company offers packages aimed at the small business market.

The new offer from 3 includes the launch of two new handsets incorporating qwerty keyboards for the business market, a range of new services including push-mail and inclusive data allowances, removing the need for a separate email device.

Mobile Office Mail is 3's first push-mail service and allows customers to have their emails delivered to their 3G handsets exactly as they would on their PCs. The new service supports Microsoft Exchange email and no system integration is required.

Mobile Office Mail gives users the freedom to send and receive email instantly from their handset, complete with alerts when new email arrives. The service also allows users to synchronise their contacts and calendar between PC and phone. Another package, Mobile Mail is available to customers who require access to POP3 email from an ISP and can have their mail delivered in near real time to their handset.

The service is powered by SEVEN Networks' Always-On Mail mobile email platform, which delivers highly secure real-time access to emails, attachments, contact and calendar information. Every email is automatically 'pushed' to the handset, and all actions are simultaneously mirrored on the host email account.

The small business price packages come with data inclusive bundles, giving SOHO and SME customers the option to integrate Mobile Mail with an internet email account or office-based Exchange or Lotus email.

The Mobile Mail option includes 10MB of data per month for 2.50 and is expected to meet the needs of most small business users. The enhanced version, Mobile Office Mail, enabling retrieval of Exchange and Lotus email, includes 15MB of data per month for 5.00 and is suited to larger businesses.

3 also announced today two new handsets that will go on sale over the next two months. The first is the Nokia E61 smartphone, using the Symbian software platform and the Windows-based QTEK 9000 (pictured).
