Budapest, Hungary – Pannon, T-Mobile and Nokia announced that they will bring Nokia Messaging, Nokia’s easy-to-use email service to their customers having Nokia enabled devices in Hungary.

Mail as well as the major local e-mail services, such as Citromail, Indamail and Freemail.

“In today’s world, access is of key importance – not only the access to information but also the access to each other. Mobile phones pose an obvious solution to keep in touch with each other, and the combination of a handset and an e-mail solution is perfectly in line with Pannon’s goals to offer services to our customers that make their lives easier” – said Gergely Laczkó Tóth, acting CMO of Pannon.

“T-Mobile offers numerous solutions for the ever more popular mobile phone based messaging to its customers, and the offer may become even more complete by introducing NokiaMessaging, as subscribers can pick the solutions best matching their needs. Subscribers increasingly expect the capability to make telephone calls, internet connections and watch TV anytime and anywhere – to have the freedom of accessing information or entertain themselves. Jointly with our partners – e.g. the market leader mobile phone manufacturer Nokia – we wish to fully meet these expectations, building upon our internationally acknowledged, excellent quality network” – said János Winkler, Head of T-Mobile in Hungary, COO Magyar Telekom.

“We are pleased to make this announcement simultaneously with Pannon and T-Mobile. Nokia aims to make mobile e-mail available for as many people as possible; therefore the fact that two Hungarian operators offer Nokia Messaging is an important milestone. With Nokia Messaging, we can meet the need of people to access their public e-mail whenever they want, wherever they want” – said Marcus Störkel, Country Manager for Nokia in Hungary.

Nokia Messaging is an easy to set-up and easy to use push email service which allows the user to mobilize up to ten personal e-mail accounts on one device. With Nokia Messaging, people get the benefit of real time messaging and are able to read, send, forward and reply to emails, view subfolders, download and read attachments and also attach files to emails in real time. Using the push e-mail technology e-mail is swiftly and automatically sent to the mobile phone, without needing to retrieve it. Many users want to enjoy the flexibility of different accounts for each of their communities.

The Nokia Messaging service can be tested for 30 days free of charge. Following the test period it will be available for a monthly charge. Users can initiate the activation of the service at the customer service of their mobile operator. The service can be used with Nokia E52, E66, E72, E71 and N97 mobile phones.
