Starting with September 26, 2009, SMART subscribers have the opportunity to choose a special data plan that will enable them to benefit from the easy-to-use messaging service, softpedia.com reports.
The first device available from SMART with Nokia Messaging on board is the Nokia E75, yet other Nokia Messaging capable handsets will also become available from the wireless carrier in the near future, the two companies announced. Through this launch, SMART becomes the first operator in the country to offer Nokia Messaging, a service that pushes emails on the handsets automatically, Danilo Mojica, head of Wireless Consumer Division, SMART, said. The service comes on the Nokia E75 for P299 per month for SMART Gold subscribers, who will enjoy unlimited Nokia Messaging push email.
“The Nokia Messaging service offers all consumers a chance to enjoy push email service on their Nokia phone. With just a single application on a mobile device, our customers can manage multiple email accounts anytime, anywhere. Nokia Messaging makes it effortless to set up a push email account, providing an unprecedented ease of use and convenience to our customers.
Coupled with SMART’s unrivalled 3G/HSPA network, they will enjoy a superior mobile email experience and remain connected easily,” Mr. Mojica added.
Nokia Messaging offers users the possibility to mobilize a number of up to ten email accounts, either from popular service providers like Ovi, Yahoo!Mail, Gmail, and Windows Live Hotmail, or from thousands of other Internet and email service providers globally. The service can be easily set up on the devices, as users will only have to enter the email address and the password to have it running. The features that Nokia Messaging offers include reading, sending, forwarding and replying to emails, as well as downloading or attaching files directly on and from the mobile phone.
“We want to make mobile messaging as ubiquitous as voice or SMS. Nokia Messaging gives people simple and affordable mobile access to the world’s most popular email accounts. We believe mobile messaging is a critical, must-have feature, and we deliver mobile messaging solutions to a broad range of Nokia devices, all easily activated with a few clicks,” said Benoit Nalin, general manager, Nokia Philippines.
