Earthlink Wireless to offer Treo 650
Earthlink Wireless, a virtual operator using Sprint's network, will offer the Treo 650 next month.
The Treo 650 will be bundled with EarthLink's exclusive TotalAccess software, designed to deliver a range of personalized content to the Treo 650. TotalAccess software includes server-side spamBlocker and Virus Blocker, which eliminate virtually 100 percent of spam and protects the user's inbox from unwanted viruses.
EarthLink Wireless offers wireless, over-the-air synchronization between the Treo 650 and EarthLink's server to keep the user's address book updated without cradle-based synchronization. In addition, users can get fast and easy access to email, information, and favorite features in a simple, integrated interface. Accessing EarthLink's Personal Start Page on the Internet allows users to set up customized content to be delivered wirelessly, such as news, stock prices, sports scores, weather, directions, maps and more.
"We are delighted to offer our customers the powerful Treo 650 smartphone, representing the latest in wireless technology" said Brent Cobb, executive vice president of Strategy and Business Development at SK-EarthLink, and general manager of the EarthLink Wireless service line. "We are confident that the full-featured Treo 650 coupled with EarthLink's award-winning services, content and its exclusive TotalAccess software will provide mobile professionals with everything they need to be productive."
EarthLink Wireless offers a range of services and solutions to help customers get the most out of their Treo 650. A dedicated team of EarthLink Wireless representatives also is available 24/7 to provide technical support and customer service, while offering advice on advanced operations of the device.
"We are excited to work with EarthLink Wireless, our first MVNO [mobile virtual network operator], to expand the Treo 650's reach to new customers and channels", said Tim Roper, vice president of U.S. carrier sales at palmOne. "EarthLink's exclusive software combined with the Treo 650's advanced range of services makes it the ideal smartphone for EarthLink Wireless' techno-centric customers who demand the best in innovative and life-enhancing technology."
