Microsoft signs Telstra mobile services deal
Can you hear me now, mate?
Microsoft and Telstra announced plans for applications and services wrapped in an interface that will be customized for devices using Telstra's IP and 3G networks.
The companies have promised an "all-in-one" mobile e-mail, calendar contacts, web browser, and business software package for mobile wrapped up in a Telstra-designed interface for handsets running Microsoft's Windows Mobile.
Microsoft's Online Services will be delivered through Telstra's T Suite Portal and paid for via subscription, the companies said. Additionally, the companies are planning integration of Microsoft's Office Communicator with Telstra's hosed IP telephony service.
Services are due to start appearing by mid 2009. ®
