Tata Telecom ties up Polish Telecom "Play"

Tata Telecommunication stated its tie up with a Poland situated telecom firm ‘Play’. This tie up will foster Tata Telecom’s plans to route all its international call traffic through Play.

Play will implement Tata’s voice termination product ‘VTS Prime Solution’ to manage Tata Tele’s customer call quality. VTS Prime will allow Tata Tele to pass on the entire burden of ensuring high quality international calls to Play.

“We chose to work with Tata Communications because of their extensive network backbone and experience, which was well positioned to fully manage and support issues our company was facing as a start-up operator”, Play’s Carrier Relations director Piotr Kuriata said in a statement.

This merger would enable Tata Telecommunication to go global. Previously they linked up with DoCoMo and now this venture with Play will definitely give Tata’s an edge in the CDMA category.

BlackBerry Personal Mail service plan by Airtel

Specifically for India, Airtel and Blackberry makers, RIM have announced a new plan. The plan known as BlackBerry Personal Mail service plan offers Airtel Blackberry users unlimited email and instant messaging services for just Rs. 499.

Anyhow, before getting into any conclusions, lets get it clear again – its “Unlimited email and instant messaging”. In other words, you don’t have unlimited internet browsing but only IM and push email service.


Users can configure up to 10 POP/IMAP email accounts including free services like Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail etc.
There is no quota on BlackBerry Personal Mail. All emails are automatically deleted after 30 days (that’s from the Blackberry servers).
IM services include Yahoo!, Google Talk and Windows Live Messenger

Blackberry is all about push emails and I think if the user is looking for emails on the go, this is the thing to go for.
