Nokia Messaging is a push email service that is fairly simple to set up and allows up to ten email accounts on a single device.
It also supports web based email like Gmail, Windows Live, Hotmail and Yahoo, in addition to local mail like MWeb, MTN Play and Webmail.
Sarah Crow, head of marketing at Nokia SA says, “The Nokia Messaging Service is the consumer pillar in Nokia’s overall message strategy, which also includes Ovi Mail for free emerging email services and Mail for Exchange and IBM Lotus Traveler for corporate email mobilisation.”
“During its Beta testing phase over the last year, the Nokia Messaging Service has had enormous uptake in South Africa, largely through self discovery,” continues Crowe. “This shows a clear demand for the service locally and brings us to today’s exciting announcement on our first local operator deal”.
The Nokia E63 will be available on MTN and the Nokia Messaging Service will be available in a 10MB data plan.
Serame Taukobong, chief marketing officer at MTN South Africa says, “MTN has partnered with Nokia to offer our customers cost-effective mobile email through the Nokia Messaging Service. On top of this, there has been a high demand for smartphones with business communication and social networking applications and we believe that the powerful Nokia E63 is an ideal device to bundle with the Nokia Messaging Service.”
The Nokia E63 is available at participating MTN Stores from the end of April at an approximate price of R119 per month on MTN Anytime 100.
