VoiceStream Adds E-Mail to Phones
Posted: 16-Nov-2001 [Source:]

[VoiceStream launches iStsream giving customers access to e-mail, calendars, address lists, or IM over GPRS.]

Bellevue, Wash. -- "VoiceStream's cellular phone customers will be able to access e-mail, calendars and address lists or send America Online instant messages at a connection speed comparable to the average home modem hookup under a new service unveiled Wednesday.

"Called iStream, the service lets users go online via their cell phone at speeds of around 40 kilobits per second - about the speed of a regular land line modem connection - using new wireless connection technology called General Packet Radio Services.

"The move could give VoiceStream a slight edge over competitors who offer similar services but at much slower speeds.

"VoiceStream's service will run on a Motorola T193 Internet-capable cell phone, which VoiceStream plans to sell for about $50 after a rebate.

"The basic iStream service will cost about $3 a month and will run via the WirelessInbox technology developed by Seattle-based ViAir.

"For about $20 to $40 a month, users also will be able to access certain Web sites on a laptop or PocketPC-enabled devices.

"VoiceStream is a Bellevue-based subsidiary of German phone company Deutsche Telekom.
