Manila, Philippines and Ra’anana, Israel – 29 March, 2010 – Globe Telecom [PSE:GLO], a member of the Singtel Group and Emoze, the leading global provider of push email services, will be partnering to introduce a revolutionary unlimited mobile email service, Globe Tattoo UNLIMAIL. As one of the leading telecommunications service providers in the Philippines, Globe Telecom will be offering a potential subscriber base of over 20 million the ability to send and receive emails in real time from nearly any mobile handset.
Push email works via a process called smart routing, which transmits data as soon as it is received by the server, rather than waiting for the phone to access and ‘pull’ the data. This allows for real time secure synchronization of emails, calendars and contacts on a wide range of mobile devices, not just smart phones. As a value-added service of youth-oriented prepaid brand Globe Tattoo, the new UNLIMAIL service takes advantage of this instant connectivity to allow subscribers to send and receive emails from their mobile phone anytime, anywhere.
UNLIMAIL will give Globe subscribers unlimited freedom. No longer will users need to be sitting at a desk or locked into a Wi-Fi Hotspot in order to be productive. UNLIMAIL will give Globe subscribers quick and easy access to the most popular email services, such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, POP3/IMAP and OWA (the Outlook Web Access interface) whether they are on the way to a meeting, shopping at the mall or relaxing on the beach.
SMS or text messaging services have driven the rapid growth of the country’s mobile sector, making the Philippines the texting capital of the world. With the introduction of high-speed mobile internet and broadband services, and services such as Globe Telecom’s UNLIMAIL, email has the potential to become the preferred personalized communication alternative of the next generation of mobile users.
Globe Tattoo is currently offering UNLIMAIL on most of the most popular Symbian and Java mobile phones available in the Philippines and plan to support additional phones in the near future.
Moshe Levy, CEO of Emoze, said: “We are proud to empower Globe subscribers from all walks of life with the ability to enjoy the benefits of 24/7 communication. With UNLIMAIL powered by Emoze, Globe Tattoo subscribers can turn their mobile phones into full-function personal communications devices. Emoze’s push messaging is secure and easy to use, and we look forward to introducing a whole generation of Globe subscribers to the next step in mobile connectivity.”
Ernest L. Cu, President and CEO of Globe Telecom, said: “We are constantly looking to make the Globe customer experience more engaging and superior in quality by seeking out products and services which provide real value to our users. UNLIMAIL is the latest innovative offer from Globe to meet the productivity and lifestyle needs of our growing subscriber base.”
