PocketMail® mobile e-mail technology was invented by a U.S. diplomat and an engineer who shared a common problem faced by travelers everywhere - communicating while on the road. The two were in London for a friend’s wedding and found, despite numerous attempts with their expensive laptops, they were both unable to get their e-mail. In frustration, they finally locked themselves in a hotel room, determined to solve the problem of remote access to e-mail. After a long night spent running to and from a local electronics store, trying to jury-rig a connection for their laptops, they began imagining an e-mail device that would actually work anytime, anywhere. In 1995, they quit their jobs and founded a company, now known as PocketMail, to develop a portable e-mail device. Inspired by space probe communications technology originally developed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and through involvement with the NASA Ames Technology Commercialization Center, the company successfully developed a handheld computer with innovative acoustic modem technology that required no connection to a telephone jack. Thus was born the first PocketMail “e-mail appliance,” the only truly portable e-mail device on the market at the time. PocketMail’s patented e-mail technology allows customers to send and receive e-mail using a small, handheld device anytime, anywhere, over virtually any telephone (including payphones, cordless phones and cell phones). The PocketMail Composer™, the company’s latest product, is a stand-alone portable e-mail appliance and organizer that offers affordable, mobile access to Internet e-mail. It can also be used to send faxes.
