Handspring Announces Beta Program for Treo Mail

CNET News.com reports that Handspring has announced a service called Treo Mail and is beginning a beta test program immediately. According to the Handspring Web Site, "Treo Mail delivers email from your existing email account to your Treo communicator so you can access your important messages from wherever you are. Treo Mail comes in two editions: Corporate Edition for use with email accounts located behind a corporate firewall or Internet Edition for use with POP3 email accounts...."

This service apparently does not enable GPRS. At this stage, Treo Mail is simply a way to integrate a Treo more tightly with traditional email services provided on corporate Intranets or via ISPs. An ISP account and a data call using the device's wireless modem is still required to make connection with the Treo Mail service.
