Sprint will be working with Yahoo! to provide an enhanced e-mail service
for mobile devices. The service is promised to be fast and easy to access, and will cost $2.99 a month. Currently, Yahoo Mail for Mobile is a free service, but both companies are banking on interest in a fee-paying service that boasts better features.
"Sprint recognizes the increasing desire of customers to have a more robust messaging experience on their handset," John Styers, director of data communications services at Sprint, said in a statement.
Initially, only customers with Sprint PCS Multimedia MM A700 phones by Samsung, the MM 7400 and 5600 versions by Sanyo and Sprint PCS Vision Smart Device Treo 600 and 650 from PalmOne will be able to use the service.
