VirtualTek Teams with U S WEST.net
U S WEST customers can now have wireless Internet e-mail and Personal Information Management (PIM) services available through the joint efforts of VirtualTek Corporation and U S WEST. With the new U S WEST MyDesk service, U S WEST Wireless BrowseNow customers will be able to check their U S WEST.net e-mail, address book, calendars and user preferences from any U S WEST Wireless data capable PCS phone.
The Web-based solution is enabled by Joydesk software and developed by VirtualTek Corporation. Joydesk provides U S WEST BrowseNow customers the capability to wirelessly-enable e-mail and PIM services for their subscribers, which can be accessed via browser-equipped wireless devices.
