E-mail Anytime, Anywhere?

Sprint announced it is scheduled to launch a new service next month and it may be just what business people who aren’t chained to their desk have been waiting for. Right now most mobile workers have to find a regular phone line to plug into for the remote access needed to check e-mail or access personal files found in their company’s internal network. With Sprint’s new service, finding a phone line will be a thing of the past.

Though a new Wireless Web service, Sprint will now be bringing corporate e-mail access to your mobile phone allowing you not only to surf the Internet, but also keep up with e-mail as if you were working at your desktop in the office.

Sprint also introduced their new wireless modem. The new modem can be programmed with a Sprint PCS phone number and installed in a laptop making use of the mobile phone unnecessary.

Worried about the speed of your connection? Never fear, Sprint is assuring that customers will be impressed with the speed of the connection, which the company says is similar to a standard dial-up phone line. This goes for using either the mobile phone connection or a wireless modem.

Just keep one thing in mind. Sprint still charges by the minute for this service so be sure to keep an eye on the time you spend surfing or you may find it easier to just check your e-mail when you return to the office.
