Wind picks Nokia for mobile e-mail

6 Feb 2007

Italy’s third largest cellular operator Wind has selected Nokia to supply a hosted mobile e-mail platform for business users. Nokia says the hosting model will allow Wind to concentrate on marketing and developing customer relationships, while the vendor will take care of operations and service availability. The service is based on Nokia’s Intellisync wireless e-mail solution and includes attachment handling, as well as calendar and contacts functions. Wind had 14.5 million subscribers and a 18.6% share of the Italian mobile market at the end of September 2006, according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database.
