VZW launches mobile email on Get It Now

OZ and Verizon Wireless have launched mobile email services for users of the carrier's Get It Now service that will cost an additional $5 a month. The subscription provides users with access to Yahoo! Mail, AOL Mail, AIM Mail, Windows Live Hotmail, Verizon.net accounts and others. Users can access up to 10 email accounts through the mobile application, which also alerts users to new emails and recreates the same "look and feel" of the desktop versions of the email services. Currently, the offering only runs on the LG enV (LG VX9900) and the Motorola V3m, but other handsets will be supported soon, according to the carrier. Download charges and airtime charges also apply in some cases.
