BEDMINSTER, NJ and SAN DIEGO, CA — Verizon Wireless, the nation's leading wireless service provider, today announced Eudora2go will be available in the coming weeks to customers with select Get It Now®-enabled phones, enabling them to access their e-mail via a mobile Eudora® e-mail client. Developed for QUALCOMM by Intellisync and Rockliffe, Inc., the Eudora2go mobile e-mail suite will be accompanied by Eudora2go.net, a hosted e-mail service with anti-virus and anti-spam protection, and will also feature PreMailTM -- a robust SMS-displayed message that allows a Eudora2go user to preview the content of an email message, saving them the time needed to download the entire message.
"With today's busy lifestyles, access to e-mail while on the go is a must have for many of our customers," said Jim Straight, vice president of wireless Internet and multimedia services for Verizon Wireless. "The upcoming availability of the Eudora2go e-mail suite on Get It Now will provide a compelling new e-mail offering, with innovative functionality like SMS-preview features that make the service fast and easy to use."
