Verizon Wireless Launches Mobile Office in Florida for Easy, Reliable Wireless Connection to the Internet

New Service Makes Wireless Handset a Dual-Purpose Device

Verizon Wireless, the nation's largest wireless provider, today launched Mobile Office -- a service that allows customers to use their data-capable wireless handset to dial in to their company network or Internet Service Provider (ISP) Mobile Office is the latest offering by Verizon Wireless that gives its customers yet another choice in how they wish to stay connected and be accessible to information when they are on-the-go.

Mobil Office is one of the simplest ways to stay connected using wireless technology since there is no need to find a phone jack when on the road and no need to purchase a modem, given that the user's wireless handset acts as a modem. Since Mobile Office is included in digital service plans, there is no additional monthly access fee. Customers use plan minutes when accessing Mobile Office, so there is no need to track a separate bundle of minutes -- using Mobile Office is just like making a voice call.

Customers can access personal and company information on their laptop computer or personal digital assistant (PDA) through the Mobile Office kit, which includes:

-- Cable to connect a wireless handset to a laptop computer

-- Software that configures a computer to use Mobile Office

-- Adapter to connect to a PDA

-- Quick 2 Net(SM), a feature that allows users to connect to the Internet in less than 10 seconds without the need for a separate ISP account

-- Fourelle's Venturi(TM) compression software, which allows for speeds up to 28.8 Kbps, enhancing Quick 2 Net(SM) performance for Internet browsing, downloading email and transferring files

-- Smith Micro's QuickLink Mobile(TM) software, which checks the size of e-mail messages before downloading.

The Mobile Office kit is currently compatible with Motorola StarTAC and the Kyocera 2035 wireless phones.

"Mobile Office is yet another option Verizon Wireless is giving its customers to stay connected. With Mobile Office, we now offer four ways to stay in touch wirelessly -- Mobile Web, Mobile Messenger and our recently introduced Smartphone," said Mike Lanman, Florida region president of Verizon Wireless. "Given that Verizon Wireless has the most extensive digital network coverage coast-to-coast, our customers can stay connected virtually anywhere."
