India’s fastest growing dual technology mobile service operator Reliance Communications (RCOM) today announced the launch of “Blackberry-Like” push Email Services directly to the mobile phone in association with Canadian firm Iseemedia Inc a leading Push Mail client provider.
Reliance Mobile’s ground-breaking SMS-based Push email service now available to Reliance GSM and CDMA subscribers across India at the fixed monthly service charges of Rs.30 and a usage tariff of 0.50 paise per SMS sent by subscribers.
This Iseemedia’s Push Mail Solution which is known as “iSeeMail” will enable every mobile handset (including base level or entry handsets) to act as a smart phone enabling the user to check, download and retrieve email messages. The iSeeMail solution is architected to utilize any available interface for providing full access to emails. This unique multi-modal approach offers subscribers to access emails using multiple interfaces such as SMS, MMS, WAP/XHTML and OMA-EMN. The iseemail platform supports virtually all email systems through standard POP3, IMAP4, EAS and WebDAV protocols. It therefore provides accesses to enterprise and consumer emails from Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, AOL, Hotmail and others. Being client-less with all the features, the iSeeMail solution makes almost any device behave like a smart phone.
Krishna Durbha, Head – VAS, Reliance Communications said, “iseemedia provides the ideal platform to deliver our next generation service to drive more email usage among our existing subscribers.” We believe our push email service can deliver substantial revenue upside over the years to RCOM.”
