Taiwan telco offers MSN/Windows Live Messenger

Taiwan's Far Eastone became one of the few companies globally to offer MSN/Windows Live Messenger to users of i-mode mobile phones

Far Eastone Telecommunications has begun offering MSN/Windows Live Messenger to users of i-mode mobile phones, one of just a handful of companies offering the service globally.

The launch of the service also makes Far Eastone the first company in Taiwan to offer MSN/Windows Live Messenger, the Taiwanese company said Wednesday. Users will be able to send instant messages over their mobile phones via the service.

Far Eastone subscribers using i-mode capable handsets, including the Sharp GX-21 and GX-31, as well as the Sony Ericsson K750i, will all be eligible to sign up for the service immediately, the company said.

To attract new users, Far Eastone is offering MSN/Windows Live Messenger free for the first month for users who sign up between now and the end of 2006, while the second month is only NT$60 (US$1.83). It is also offering users of the new service a chance to win a new Sony Ericsson K610im i-mode capable handset.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
