UAE telecoms operator Etisalat has launched a new email and messaging-only service for BlackBerry users. While customers will find their internet browsing abilities limited, they will have access to ten email accounts and instant messaging (IM) applications.

The telco said the package was targeted at individual and business customers, who prefer to use ‘no frills' email on the move. It said customers subscribing to the package will be allowed access to their individual and work email accounts, without the addition of internet browsing, which will be limited only to BlackBerry smartphones with Wi-Fi capabilities.

Etisalat said the ‘Unlimited Email Plus' subscription package will cost customers AED139 ($38) a month, and does not have any limits in terms of data usage and is available for both prepaid and postpaid customers.

With the addition of the new package, Etisalat now offers five subscription packages for BlackBerry smartphones, priced from AED49 per month to AED295 per month.
