Feb 13, 2006

Vodafone launched Monday a mobile e-mail system together with Microsoft.

As of March, the British mobile carrier's Windows mobile direct push system will use Microsoft's Windows Mobile 5.0 system that features both messaging and security features.

"Mobile email is a simple, security-enhanced and easy to set up service which enables customers to remain productive, responsive and organized when out of the office" said Peter Bamford, chief marketing officer at Vodafone. "Windows Mobile Email from Vodafone delivers a mobile email service which seamlessly extends the Microsoft Office desktop environment and rapidly captures the benefits for business that mobile email brings."
