28 Sep 2005

Russian cellco Vimpelcom has teamed up with US vendor SEVEN to introduce Russia’s first push email service. Vimpelcom’s Mobile Email service was launched on 1 September offering users access to Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes email, with attachments and calendar information on their PDAs and smartphones in real time, while simultaneously mirroring changes on the original server.

The launch follows recent deals between SEVEN and DTAC in Thailand, Far EasTone in Taiwan and PLDT in the Philippines to provide push email solutions.
