email through SMS service launched in India

yDuniya Networks has announced the launch of a service which will allow mobile users to send emails, save and retrieve personal information and share contact details just by sending an SMS and without having access to the Internet.

Currently available for Airtel subscribers in Karnataka, the service will be expanded nationally and to other telecom operators soon, the Bangalore-based startup founder and chairman Jagdish Kini said.

The SMS-based application also supports interactive group messaging and allows files to be sent to email addresses. Commonly-used files such as brochures can be stored on the company’s server and data up to one megabyte can be sent to email addresses using the SMS shortcode 53695.

“There is a digital divide between mobile users and web users. This service is a way to bridge this divide,” Kini said.

MyDuniya also has a platform for enterprises and web portals to allow access to customers through the mobile phone. The company says the platform supports two-way interactions and can be leveraged to provide personalised information.

“The goal of the service is consumer convenience and the mobile market is our biggest market. We have launched our initial service on the SMS platform considering that SMS is the most widely used non-voice service” CEO Ganapathy Subramanian said.
