VeriSign sued for unfair marketing practices

Handspring unveiled two e-mail programs for its Treo communicator multipurpose personal digital assistant on Monday, determined not to stay out of the loop in the growing wireless e-mail market.

Treo Mail Internet Edition is aimed at customers using POP3 (Post Office Protocol 3) e-mail accounts accessible through the Internet, and Treo Mail Corporate Desktop Edition is targeted at enterprise users who need to access their Microsoft Outlook, Exchange or POP3 e-mail from behind a firewall. The e-mail programs round out the list of features now touted by the combination PDA and cell phone, which was launched with much fanfare earlier this year.

The Internet Edition is priced at $US49.99 for a year's subscription, while the Corporate Edition is priced at $99.99 for a year. Users can sample both versions through a 30-day free trial by downloading the software from Handspring's Web site at http://www.handspring.com. The e-mail service subscription fees are in addition to the extra airtime minutes mobile phone service providers may charge users.

Treo e-mail is powered by wireless service provider Visto, and is optimised for the Treo communicator, allowing users to program one-button e-mail access and select a range of delivery options, Handspring said.

The mail services are compatible with the Treo 180 and 180g, as well as the forthcoming colour Treo 270 communicator, the Californian handheld maker said.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

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.
