Last but not least Vodafone and Microsoft who will announce today the European launch of Windows Mobile E-Mail from Vodafone. This solution is based on Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 and incorporates the Messaging and Security Feature Pack (MSFP), which includes Direct Push technology and enhanced security features.

From March, Vodafone will deploy a range of Windows Mobile 5.0-powered devices with Direct Push Technology to corporate and small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers in France, Germany and the U.K. The service will also be available to corporate and SMB customers in other countries during 2006.

Windows Mobile E-Mail from Vodafone enables customers to enjoy a Direct Push E-Mail service on the move in a format that anyone familiar with Microsoft Office will recognize. E-Mails and tasks are synchronized directly from Outlook, and Microsoft Office Excel Mobile and Word Mobile attachments can be viewed, edited and returned. Having a common E-Mail experience across the PC and Vodafone Windows Mobile-powered device makes service adoption simple and accelerates delivery of the benefits that mobile E-Mail brings to business customers.

"Windows Mobile E-Mail is a simple, security-enhanced and easy to set up service which enables customers to remain productive, responsive and organized when out of the office," said Peter Bamford, chief marketing officer at Vodafone. "Windows Mobile E-Mail from Vodafone delivers a mobile E-Mail service which seamlessly extends the Microsoft Office desktop environment and rapidly captures the benefits for business that mobile E-Mail brings."

"We are delighted to be working with Vodafone to deliver a mobile messaging solution for a diverse range of business customers," said Pieter Knook, senior vice president, Mobile and Embedded Devices Division and Communications Sector, Microsoft Corp. "It's an exciting time for companies that are now realizing the true business potential of mobile solutions for both the business and for their employees. Our combined teams are focused on delivering the most compelling and innovative mobile solutions to meet these customer demands."

As well as delivering a great user experience across a range of the latest Vodafone Windows Mobile-powered devices, Windows Mobile E-Mail from Vodafone easily integrates with customers' Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 software, making Windows Mobile E-Mail a highly cost-effective, scalable and security-enhanced way to deliver the benefits of E-Mail on the move without the need for investment in additional servers or hardware.
