Months after their press release, SUN Cellular finally launches its mobile push email service from OceanLake as Sun Mobile Office. Sun Mobile Office is a push e-mail solution that let's you receive alerts for every new e-mail received from your internet accounts to your Sun mobile phone. This service allows you to sort and retrieve important emails anytime, anywhere.
You will need atleast a WAP/GPRS enabled phone to use this service.
Some key features of Sun Mobile Office include the ability to configure a maximum of 3 of your widely used POP3 and IMAP4 (Yahoo!, Gmail, Hotmail, ISP Mails, etc.) e-mail addresses into one distinct e-mail account. Compose, reply and forward e-mails anytime, anywhere. Set significant tasks and get reminders ahead of time through your mobile phone. And the best thing, get SMS notifications on new and important e-mails so you will always stay connected.
You can also read attachments like Zip, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF up to 1MB in size. If the file exceeds 1MB, you will need to download the file to your phone or memory card.
Sun Mobile Office does not require you to install any software on your phone. All transactions will be done via SMS and WAP connections. You will receive an SMS informing you of your new mail with the corresponding link. The link will then take you to you Sun Mobile Office's inbox which houses a maximum of 3 POP3/IMAP4 accounts. Your Sun Mobile Office inbox has a shared capacity of 30MB.
Sun Mobile Office has a recurring subscription charge of Php100 per 30 days. The subscription charge includes SMS notifications and access to your Sun Mobile Office inbox with 30MB capacity. What's not included is the GPRS/3G charge you incur while reading, composing, setting up schedules, etc. while on the WAP page.
Since Sun Mobile Office requires you to connect to a GPRS/3G connection, everytime you open your Sun Mobile Office you will be charged the standard Sun Cellular rate of P0.10/KB. Kinda expensive don't you think? It will be better if they change it to a time-based-per-minute scheme like what uMobile is doing (P0.33/min).
Below are the main features of Sun Mobile Office:
• Consolidate 3 POP3/IMAP emails
• Send, Forward, Compose email
• Read Attachments (Images, Zip, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, etc)
• Customize the Mail Alert.
• Contact Management.
• Calendar Management.
• 48-hour e-mail retention
