AOL E-Mail on More Handhelds

SONICblue's Diamond Mako handheld will have built-in access to America Online's (AOL's) e-mail and instant messaging services, the companies announced Monday.

The move is hardly surprising since AOL and U.K. handheld vendor Psion recently made a similar announcement for Psion's handhelds. The Mako is a re-branded version of Psion's Revo handheld.

Under the agreement, SONICblue will include AOL software in the retail packages of the Diamond Mako. In addition, AOL will promote the Diamond Mako on the AOL service.
