EarthLink yesterday announced the launch of EarthLink Wireless Email and Internet Service on select Palm OS and Pocket PC handheld devices.
"We are very excited to introduce a great suite of wireless services to Palm OS and Pocket PC users," says Lance Weatherby, executive vice president of EarthLink Everywhere. "Leveraging the award-winning wireless platform we acquired through our purchase of OmniSky's assets in January, this launch illustrates EarthLink's commitment to providing Internet users with the broadest and most compelling variety of wireless Internet access options in the marketplace today."
The devices now supported by EarthLink Wireless Email and Internet Service as a result of this service launch include Handspring's Visor Edge, Pro, Prism, Platinum, and Neo (OS 3.5 or higher) models. EarthLink Wireless Email and Internet Service on the above Palm OS devices is $39.95 per month for unlimited monthly access, or subscribers can pre-pay $399.95 for a full year of service and save more than 15 percent a month in access. In addition to the service, subscribers can also purchase through EarthLink the Novatel Minstrel wireless modems necessary for wireless access.
Moving forward, EarthLink also plans to leverage its strong retail partnerships to bundle EarthLink Wireless Email and Internet Service with these popular products when consumers purchase them through leading retailers nationwide.
EarthLink Wireless Email and Internet Service and modem equipment on select handheld devices can be purchased through The EarthLink Store online, or by calling EarthLink toll-free at 800/860-5767.
