Nokia and Telecom Italia sign agreement for Nokia Messaging
Stuttgart, Germany - Nokia and Telecom Italia announced today the new offer of Nokia Messaging, an easy-to-use messaging service, to Telecom Italia customers in Italy. From the middle of September, Telecom Italia customers will be able to access the Nokia Messaging push email service and subscribe offers designed to send and receive email from the mobile phone at very affordable prices.
With the new offering MAXXI Mail, all TIM customers will have 1 GB of storage a month to check their email while on the move at a cost of EUR 4 per month including VAT. The offer is valid for those customers who choose the top-up option as well as the ones who have a contract.
For business customers, Telecom Italia has studied various formulas and made available various pricing plans: from the one at daily usage for EUR 1 a day, dedicated to those who use email "on the move" just occasionally, to the monthly subscription formula, ideal for those who use email regularly and who want to combine the use of email in complete tranquility (unlimited emails) with internet browsing, always through the mobile phone.
"This agreement contributes to the evolution of the mobile phone that will increasingly be a tool to access one's ecosystem of private, family and professional content. TIM believes in this evolution and wants to experience it alongside its customers," said Oscar Cicchetti, Head of Domestic Market in Telecom Italia.
"With this service, Nokia and Telecom Italia join forces to drive mobile messaging adoption for their customers using Nokia solutions and Telecom Italia special data plans. We are glad to satisfy the growing consumer demand to access email accounts directly from the device whenever they want, wherever they are. The objective is to bring mobile email to everyone and make it easily accessible to the largest number of users possible," said Alessandro Mondini Branzi, General Manager, Nokia Italia.
Nokia Messaging simplifies the mobilization of email. This new solution allows easy access to multiple email accounts by simplifying the set-up process and removing complex steps. Push technology ensures a quick delivery of emails directly to the mobile phone.
Nokia Messaging makes the email accounts of Telecom Italia mobile as well as supports email solutions from thousands of other providers globally. Telecom Italia customers can have up to ten personal email accounts pushed directly to their Nokia device such as alice.it, TIN.it, virgilio.it, Gmail(TM), Yahoo!®Mail, and Windows Live (TM) Hotmail®.
Telecom Italia and Nokia have agreed to offer Nokia Messaging with some 30 Nokia Symbian devices, including Nokia E75, Nokia E55, Nokia N97 and other popular devices such as the Nokia E71 and Nokia N95 8GB *. Customers simply need to enter their email address and password to get emails pushed directly to the homescreen of their device. They can then read, send, forward and reply to emails and download, read and attach files on the go.
