MSN Hotmail to be available on RIM,Tata and Spice

MUMBAI: With a view to expanding mobile messaging in India, MSN and Mobile 365 have further signed up with five local mobile service providers.

These include Reliance IndiaMobile (RIM) and Reliance GSM from the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Enterprises stable, Tata Teleservices, Spice Punjab and Spice Karnataka.

In December 2004, MSN India and Mobile 365 forged similar mobile alliances with Airtel and BPL Mobile to enable their subscribers to access Hotmail e-mails and chat with their MSN buddies on SMS anywhere, anytime.

In February 2005, MSN India also launched MSN Hotmail and Messenger via two-way SMS with Hutch.

Operators in India are constantly scouting for new mobile content and applications. According to the deal, the users of MSN Hotmail will have the option to receive e-mails, sent to their MSN Hotmail accounts via SMS on their mobile phones.

The users will also be able to reply to the email messages directly to the sender's inbox using SMS, as well as perform other common tasks directly from their phone.

"Being directly connected with more than 180 mobile operators worldwide, we have collaborated with more than 450 brands globally. India represents a huge market for Mobile 365 in South Asia, and we see great potential for us to offer our market-proven expertise in mobile messaging (SMS and MMS) services and strengthen our market presence here, especially in view of the astounding growth in the mobile data market in India. We remain committed to expanding our business and market presence in India, and working with local partners to quickly realize mobile content revenue." said Mobile 365 managing director of Asia Matthew Talbot.
