LITTLE ROCK, Ark.–Whether for business or pleasure, checking e-mail is a part of the daily routine and a crucial part of staying connected. Alltel Wireless, America’s largest wireless network, today announced that it is making e-mail easily accessible and more convenient with Alltel Mobile E-mail.
The Alltel Mobile E-mail application gives Alltel customers the ability to access their Web-based personal and work e-mail, contacts and calendar events from their Windows Mobile smartphones and other select Alltel handsets. The application can be downloaded directly to the handsets without additional software or support.
Customers who choose to check their personal e-mail from their smartphones can use Alltel Mobile E-mail to automatically connect to popular e-mail services such as AOL, Hotmail®, Yahoo!® Mail and more by simply entering their username and password one-time to establish the connection to their phone.
Alltel Mobile E-mail is also compatible with Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA), allowing customers to easily sync their work calendars and contacts without IT support or the need to run any software inside the firewall. Small and medium size businesses can deploy and support Alltel Mobile E-mail using Workgroup Connector, powered by SEVEN®, a desktop software solution that allows one computer to centrally manages mobile email access for up to 25 employees and provides access to Microsoft Exchange and other POP/IMAP corporate email servers.
“Customers rely on e-mail as a way to stay in touch with friends, family and business associates,” said David Maddox, vice president of product marketing at Alltel Wireless. “Our customers want their devices to do so much more than just make calls. With Alltel Mobile E-mail, customers can send and reply to e-mail and manage their address book in a simple and seamless way.”
Alltel Mobile E-mail will be included on Windows Mobile smartphones including the New HTC Touch Pro™, HTC Touch Diamond™, HTC PPC 6800™, HTC Touch™, Motorola Q™, Motorola Q9c™ and Palm Treo 700wx™. The application is also available to consumers on select phones such as the new Samsung Delve™, LG Scoop™, Samsung Hue™, MotoRAZR V3a™ and MotoK1m™.
