Low-end phones now have a Push Email solution from Synchronica
Synchronica SimpleMail is the name of the newest mass-market consumer push email (CPE) solution created for owners of low-end cell phones.
Launched by Synchronica, an international company based in the UK, SimpleMail is said to be capable of offering push email to almost all the mobile phones currently in use.
Synchronica SimpleMail features an email-to-SMS and an email-to-MMS gateway and it comes with email trans-coding and a “compression engine”, which reduce network traffic, allowing basic phones to display attachments.
Other features of Synchronica SimpleMail are:
Support for HTML, DOC, PDF, ZIP, MP3 and MPEG attachments
Support for Yahoo Mail, Gmail, MSN Hotmail Plus; any POP3 or IMAP4 mailbox is supported as well
Clientless solution that allows WAP / XHTML browser access
Real-time auto-detection of devices
Multi-lingual support (English, Chinese, Cyrillic, Arabic and Kanji)
Support for multiple email accounts on a single phone
Due to its set of capabilities, Synchronica SimpleMail is ideal for mobile carriers that offer services in emerging markets.
Synchronica said that two mobile operators have already signed agreements to provide the new push email solution to their customers, while a carrier from Russia and the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) has ordered additional licenses for SimpleMail.
