Wireless provider Verizon has a new wireless e-mail and Internet access service called Mobile Web Plus that can be used with the Kyocera QCP 6035 smartphone, a Web ready, Palm-powered handset that combines a personal digital assistant (PDA) with a wireless phone.
The smartphones will be packaged with a Mac and Windows compatible installation CD. If you already have a smartphone, you can download the software free at the
Verizon Web site. Mobile Web Plus service is available with any digital price plan for US$9.95 a month.
Mobile Web Plus service has access and support for up to six POP3 e-mail accounts. You can open and forward Microsoft Word and Excel, Corel, WordPerfect and PDF attachments with your e-mail. A One Tap feature saves addresses, phone numbers and transfers information from the Web to the smartphone. The “Blazer Browser” purportedly offers faster browsing experiences with built-in content streaming that’s formatted specifically for smartphones. Secure Socket Layer technology is used for security.
