Bedminster, NJ -- Verizon Wireless announced the availability of GlobalEmail that gives Verizon Wireless business customers access to e-mail in more than 50 countries worldwide on the recently introduced Samsung SCH i830. With GlobalEmail, Verizon Wireless customers can stay connected and productive whether traveling across the country or around the world.
GlobalEmail on the Samsung i830 with full QWERTY keyboard, allows customers to send and receive e-mails while out of the office. This GlobalEmail-equipped device is also voice capable, allowing customers to make and receive calls in the United States, Canada and more than 140 countries worldwide.
The initial device that offers Verizon Wireless' GlobalEmail is the new i830 that was announced last week. Equipped with VZEmail including Wireless Sync as well as Windows MobileTM and Pocket PC applications, this wireless workhorse allows travelers to check and respond to e-mail, develop, review and edit most document file types. Exclusively available from Verizon Wireless, the i830 allows international travelers to keep one phone and one phone number almost anywhere they go via its dual mode functionality CDMA/GSM for voice and EV-DO/GPRS for data.
GlobalEmail is the latest offering from Verizon Wireless to provide business customers with access to the voice and data services they need to manage business while away from the office and traveling abroad. The company recently introduced GlobalAccess, which provides business customers with a two-card solution that gives them connection to the Internet across the United States, Canada and in 50 countries throughout Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa.
