Verizon Makes Bold Move With Mobile E-mail

Verizon has finally pulled its head out of its butt and added a new e-mail client that supports Yahoo!, AIM, AOL, Windows Live Hotmail, and POP3/IMAP. Oh wait. Did I say they pulled their heads out of their butt? I meant they’ve shoved it even further up there because they’re charging $5 for this service when other carriers don’t charge a dime. The service is available on select Get It Now phones like the LG enV and MOTORAZR V3m and is powered by OZ. Of course, if you’re an America’s Choice Premium plan subscriber you don’t get charged the $5, but you do have to pony up $79.99 a month. Sign me up!
