The company has developed a suite that instantly forwards mails from the user’s e-mails — both corporate and personal IDs — as short messages (SMSs).
Like other push-mail services, a user need not connect to the Internet to read his mails. Unlike other services that are only available on high-end data-enabled handsets, these services can be accessed on every handset that supports SMS. At present, handsets that cost as little as Rs 600 support SMS.
..even though SMSs support only 160 characters, Netcore’s service pushes 480 characters to the user that will be delivered as multiple SMSs. [via]
In India, 50% of mobile users are still on ULCH (i.e. ultra low cost handsets) and a service like stands a a good chance of adoption.
