T-Mobile launches Microsoft “push” email


T-MobileTechworld.com is reporting that T-Mobile has announced the launch of Microsoft Exchange 2003 Service Pack 2-based push email for all Windows Mobile 5.0 devices on their network.

“We already provide Blackberry, and are strong in the consumer area,” said Jote Bassi, marketing manager for data at T-Mobile. “We are now focusing on the business market. Likely customers for this will have forty, fifty or more mobile users.”

Because T-Mobile won’t host any servers, this service is for corporate use only. However, a £17 “Web’n’walk Professional” flat data rate (2GB max) should entice a lot of customers.
