The announcement follows the successful completion of trials on wireless Internet services, which were conducted by connecting JTEL's CellVic PDA to data-enabled mobile phones operating on Bell Mobility's CDMA network.
The partnership will provide Bell Mobility and JTEL subscribers with wireless PDA access to e-mail and JTEL'S Micro Web Browser.
"JTEL is pleased to work with North America's leading CDMA data service provider -- Bell Mobility. The wireless Internet access provided by Bell Mobility is ideally suited to CellVic's Internet capabilities," said Dong Hoon Shin, President of JTEL. "We hope to provide a real wireless Internet experience to customers at an affordable price."
In May 1999, JTEL became the first PCS company in North America to put an Internet browser into a digital PCS phone.
Bell Mobility, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bell Canada, provides a complete range of wireless communications solutions--cellular, paging, data, satellite, PCS, and airline passenger communications services--to over two million Canadian customers.
JTEL's unit has been the best selling product in its category within its domestic Korean market.
