Last month, Nokia stopped supporting blackberry services on its handset, and the launch of Nokia E71 without blackberry was a clear indication from mobile phone manufacturer Giant Nokia to give competition to Blackberry.
Yes, Nokia has started offering Push Email services in a beta phase and that too at no cost, yes service is free but we don’t know how long it will remain free. Service named as “Nokia Email” is an application that offers native push emails to your Nokia devices.
Nokia email currently supports POP and IMAP email protocols. MSN Hotmail and Corporate Mails are not yet supported. However, Nokia says that may arrive very soon once the beta testing is over. Currently supported devices include: Nokia E51, E61, E61i, E65, E66, E71, E90, N73, N80, N81 8GB and N95.
How to use Nokia Email
To begin you must register on Nokia Email site. You will receive the application via download link to your mobile and application installation is very simple and smooth. Once the application is installed the set-up automatically begins.
Setting up the sync schedule is easy as well and of course since we want push we want it on at all times! Remember though that data charges will apply as per your GPRS/EDGE plan.
The inbox speaks for itself. The application also gives an option to create local folders which are stored on the device (but not synced with Gmail in this case). There are many other great features included in this application and we can expect even more in the final release.
