Pocket MSN is a new client based always-on subscription service optimized for Pocket PC and Smartphone. Pocket MSN gives users of compatible Pocket PCs and Smartphones instant, one-click access to core MSN services, including Hotmail, Messenger, Alerts and MSN browse content.

Built as an integrated experience into Pocket PC and Smartphone, Pocket MSN is designed to offer users the familiar and consistent experience they expect, using an always-on functionality that does not require a continuous data transmission.

In addition, the service was designed to enable true mobile data scenarios, providing users with:


  • Always-on experience

  • The ability to communicate with contacts across compatible devices

  • Real-time updates for Hotmail messages and alerts

  • One-click access to Hotmail and Messenger contacts from the device Today/Home screen

  • And much more




I wonder, why MSN will offers this service via carriers only and not offering it as a stand-alone addition. So this makes me wonder if this services will be a free of charge one or if it becomes/turns into a pay service. If so, the carriers need to reduce the GPRS tariffs, otherwise the user will pay twice, data transmission and service.
