OmniSky to be Available in Europe

OmniSky and News Corporation announced today that their joint venture, OmniSky International, has launched the first integrated wireless e-mail and Internet service on mobile devices in Europe. The three-month beta program, which initially will be available only in the United Kingdom, is the first part of OmniSky's plan to make its wireless service throughout Europe. The service will be offered with a Visor Platinum or Prism, a VisorPhone and airtime from BT Cellnet. There is, as yet, no word on cost.

BT Cellnet will connect OmniSky customers via its nationwide GSM 900 network. The company's extensive European roaming agreements allow customers to remain connected to vital email and Web-based information across the continent.

Update: OmniSky is offering a free Visor and VisorPhone, as well as unlimited online time for three months.

Those who sign up for the trial will get the service--with three months of unlimited airtime--and a Visor and VisorPhone for 299 pounds ($435). Getting a Visor Prism costs more. The test service will not include voice service.
