SingTel Delivers Nokia Messaging To Singapore Consumers
New data plan for consumer email service for Nokia E63 is a first in Asia
Singapore – SingTel and Nokia will deliver Nokia Messaging on the Nokia E63 with special data plans for SingTel mobile subscribers in Singapore to drive mobile messaging adoption for its customers using Nokia devices. SingTel will be the first operator in Asia, and among the first in the world to launch this offering on 4 April 2009.
As a special introductory offer, SingTel subscribers who purchase a Nokia E63 device with a MobileM@il Plus data plan for two years at S$5.35/month will have the Nokia Messaging built-in push email service included without additional charge. (Normal subscription price is S$17.86).
MobileM@il Plus also comes with a bundle of 10MB data and PhoneSafe – a mobile phone security solution that lets customers lock phone, backup and delete important data such as emails from phones remotely.
“SingTel is pleased to be the first telco in Asia to partner Nokia to introduce Nokia Messaging. More and more customers – even non-business users – are looking for a reliable service that allows them to have email pushed easily to their handsets while on the move,” said Mr Yuen Kuan Moon, SingTel’s Chief of Consumer.
“This new Nokia Messaging service offers all consumers a chance to enjoy push email services on their phones, previously only available to business users with corporate email. With just a single application and SingTel’s new MobileM@il Plus, our customers can manage multiple email accounts anytime, anywhere. When used on the Nokia E63, 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 SingTel’s unrivalled 3G network, they will enjoy a superior mobile email experience and remain connected easily”, said Mr Yuen.
“We want to make mobile messaging as ubiquitous as voice or SMS. Nokia Messaging gives people a simple and affordable mobile access to the world’s most popular email in the marketplace. We believe mobile messaging is a critical, must-have feature, and we deliver mobile messaging solutions to the broadest range of devices, all easily activated with a few clicks,” said Vlasta Berka, General Manager, Nokia Singapore, Malaysia & Brunei.
Nokia Messaging mobilises consumer email on Nokia devices, to give millions of consumers access to email accounts from Yahoo! Mail, Windows Live Hotmail, Gmail, and SingNet email as well as email solutions from thousands of ISPs around the world on Nokia devices.
To mobilise their email account, all users have to enter are their email address and password, and emails are seamlessly pushed to their preferred Nokia device. Nokia Messaging also makes it simple to read, send, forward and reply to emails, download and read attachments, and attach files to emails directly on their Nokia device.
SingTel MobileM@il Plus plans for the Nokia Messaging solution will also be offered across other Nokia devices including the Nokia E75 which will be available very soon.
