Nokia announced that its free email service, Mail on Ovi, is entering the global public beta stage, allowing users with Nokia Series 40-based feature phones from all around the world to “do their email” while on-the-go.
From the official release:
The Ovi email account gives a person all the features and functionalities of a typical PC-based email account. During the Beta period, consumers will be able to choose from 12 languages based on the settings of their device, including English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Hindi, Bengali, Tagalog, Bahasa Indonesia and Bahasa Malaysia.
Mobile phone users from India, Malaysia and the Philippines have been using the Beta service since November, and the availability is now being extended to the rest of the world (though certain countries may not yet be supported during the Beta period).
