Consilient cuts the cost of push email

Mobile email provider Consilient has taken service to a new low—price, that is. The St. Johns, Newfoundland, Canada-based company has unveiled Consilient Push, an email service that delivers email directly to mobile media devices for as little as US$3 a month.

You don’t need a server, you don’t need an expensive Blackberry or Treo, and you don’t need a PC to forward your mail for you. Consilient Push does it all, for a fraction of what other providers are charging, without embarking on restrictive service practices, and for individuals and enterprises.

The other big news, other than the rock-bottom price, is the development platform on which Consilient Push is based. It is Push-IMAP (or P-IMAP, for short), and it is open-standard technology. In short, it “plays nice with others,” meaning that it can communicate with products made by many manufacturers. This is a distinct advantage, Consilient executives insist, over closed-standard proprietors like Microsoft and Blackberry’s RIM.

Consilient Push can work with mobile phones made by many manufacturers, including Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, Motorola, and Sanyo. It can also deliver mail and calendar functionality to that Blackberry or Treo that you might already have.

The push service, which can be easily installed over the air, supports many languages, including English, Spanish, German, Japanese, French, and Chinese. It is protected by 128-bit SSL encryption and has network support for the triband approach of GSM/GPRS/EDGE and also for Wi-Fi connections.
