Cingular Wireless has announced that starting Monday, Cingular subscribers will be able to access their email accounts with Yahoo, Hotmail, and AOL with their new Cingular email service. The new Cingular email service is aimed squarely at the RIM Blackberry email market.

Adopting a mobile email solution created by OZ Communications of Montreal, Cingular will not charge for the service, although Cingular customers must have a data plan for their mobile phone in order for the email service to work. According to a Cingular spokesperson, even their least expensive $5.00-a- month plan would provide enough data transfer to allow someone to check email a few times a day.


On the other hand if you are a power user like me, you may want to consider their all-you-can eat data plan, which at only $24.95 a month is a pretty good deal, and is sufficient for searching and browsing news on your phone, as well as checking email (not that I do any of those things with it, as I use my Sidekick for those activities.)

While OZ counts Sprint and Bell Canada among its customers, this is the first wide-scale deployment of its mobile email solution.

Said Hilmar Gunnarsson, executive vice-president of global sales and marketing at OZ, “For us as a company, it is a huge achievement in this time frame to go from developing the solution… and securing the first customer …and going into a mass deployment.”

“RIM has been phenomenally successful catering to high-end users, but that’s peanuts compared to the 700 million plus consumer e-mail accounts,” added OZ CEO Skuli Mogensen.
