Vodafone UK has announced its own branded push email service, Vodafone Business Email, and said it will support the launch with parallel offerings for BlackBerry Connect and Microsoft Windows Mobile-based devices.
Users who sign up before 31 May 2006 will get the service for £28 a month on top of their voice tariff.
Vodafone Business Email is being provided through a deal with wireless email provider Visto, which offers a push email offering for small firms and individuals. A hosted service is available for larger companies.
Vodafone also plans to offer BlackBerry Connect which will deliver the push email services of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, allowing attachment viewing and secure encryption on a range of handsets.
The Microsoft Windows Mobile service using scheduled ActiveSync is designed for companies that use Exchange 2003 and Windows Mobile smartphones.
Vodafone will offer services to remotely configure, interrogate, diagnose, manage and maintain smart devices connected to the Vodafone network, featuring a lock and/or wipe facility for lost or stolen phones to protect sensitive information.
The service will be inclusive on certain Vodafone Business Email and Windows Mobile-based device price plans, and is already in place for users of BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
