Late last week testing began of HulloMail in Ireland. We have managed to recruit a band of testers in the Republic who have kindly agreed to be our 'guinea pigs' in market. We have given this intrepid group access to the Android and BlackBerry apps with iPhone to follow this week, so they can put the service through it's paces.
You have probably noticed that we have amended the HulloMail website recently to incorporate Ireland so all the details are there for when we launch the service shortly.
The Hullo Family are getting excited about filming their summer special in Dublin which will be available for launch, so watch this space.
The decision was made to launch in Ireland first because we have strong links with the country and the potential user base is considerable.
When the service goes live in the coming weeks it will be available to all Irish BlackBerry, Android and iPhone users regardless of which operator they're with as all will be supported. Unfortunately users on a pay as you go tariff will still not be able to use the service unless their operator supports unconditional diverts.
We will let you know how testing goes, but all is looking good so far.
