Visto first to gain Symbian approval for email

Push email firm Visto, on Tuesday announced it has successfully completed the Symbian email validation program and is the first company to be accredited the “Symbian Approved” mark for push email.

The mark “guarantees mobile professionals a high-quality mobile email experience”, according to the companies.

The validation program defines industry agreed quality guidelines for push email solutions in the form of a Symbian Recommended Practice against which vendors can validate their solutions. The guidelines cover the whole user experience from installation and device compatibility to minimum service functionality and ease-of-use.

Solutions that successfully complete the validation process are accredited with the “Symbian Approved” mark, signifying to phone manufacturers, system integrators and network operators that the solutions offer an industry agreed level of functionality. This benchmark is designed to shorten the time required to roll-out push email services and accelerate the anticipated widespread adoption of push email.

Jean Tripier, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Vistosaid: “Visto regards ease-of-use as the most important dimension in driving the mass market adoption of business mobile email. This is why we believe the Symbian mobile email validation programme is important.”
