Poor man`s `BlackBerry` services in the works

Rajesh S Kurup  |  Mumbai 

Users of entry-level handsets will soon be able to avail of push-mail services, with the Rajesh Jain-promoted Netcore Solutions close to launching the service in India.

Push-mail service providers charge between Rs 800 and Rs 1,200 a month and usually require high-end data-enabled handsets that cost Rs 12,000 and more.

The launch, expected in a couple of weeks, comes as the government has been seeking legal intrusion (monitoring of data) of BlackBerry services and demanding that Research In Motion, Canadian owners of the service, moves its servers India.

Netcore has installed its servers in Navi Mumbai, avoiding a potential BlackBerry-like situation.

The company has developed a suite that instantly forwards mails from the user's e-mails
