Verizon Announces GlobalEmail

Verizon Wireless announced on Friday a new service called GlobalEmail, which will allow many users to access their email in more than 50 countries around the globe.

The key is use of the recently introduced Samsung SCH i830 model phone, which has a full QWERTY keyboard and also allows voice capability for sending and retrieving mail. The i830, introduced last week, is equipped with VZEmail including Wireless Sync, Windows Mobile and Pocket PC applications, all of which give the handset’s user enormous and wide-ranging email functionality no matter where he or she is. And the phone number need not change, either. (This is a common complaint of international travelers.)

“With GlobalEmail, Verizon Wireless business customers and mobile professionals can respond to messages and stay connected, even if work requires them to be in different countries around the globe,” according to Jim Straight, vice president of wireless Internet and data for Verizon

Pricing for GlobalEmail will start at US$64.99 a month for unlimited access in the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe. Customers who travel to other countries will pay an additional US$0.03/KB.

As of now, the i830 is the only handset offering GlobalEmail. Other models might follow suit in the coming months.
