Blackberry alternative, space2go offers consumer Email-Push

Comments

Berlin/Cannes, February 15, 2005 – space2go presents a fully available application suite that mobile and fixed net operators can integrate in their network. The solution consists of a server application and device clients to make mobile phones support the new solution. The solution is also capable to wirelessly push contacts, calendar and tasks to mobile devices. The service operates in any network environment like GPRS, UMTS or even WLAN.

“Network operators get an end to end solution to implement true email push for their huge consumer user base in order to increase data traffic in their existing networks” said space2go CEO Christian Huthmacher.

The new service allows to deliver new emails that arrive on any standard ISP email account to be pushed to the users device immediately. Until now, users had to check the email boxes manually and download new emails to their mobile device. Email Push became popular with the Blackberry service that also ensures that new Emails are delivered to the Blackberry device automatically. “After managers are already enjoying expensive Email Push solutions based on proprietary solutions we have brought this service to the consumer world. Millions of end users are keen to start using an affordable and device independent Email Push service” Huthmacher explains.

The new space2go offering is ideally suited to the needs of the consumer market. The solution supports all Symbian and Microsoft based mobile devices. Most users therefore do not need to invest in a new device but can keep their existing handset. The space2go solution works “out of the box” with all open Email services like Gmail, Lycos and others. Even proprietary Email platforms like AOL Mail or Hotmail can be push enabled by installing the space2go “Mobile Push Gateway” (MPG), a piece of software that comes with the solution bundle. The MPG works behind the Spam and Virus wall of these message providers to ensure that only valuable information is pushed to the users device.

Consumers that do not want to wait until their operator implements the service, can immediately subscribe to the service directly from space2go under www.space2go.com. The service is offered for fees as low as 4,00 Euro per months (excluding traffic charges).
