Available at Lycos Asia’s portal sites in Hong Kong (http://hk.i-email.lycosasia.com), China and Taiwan, the new feature offers Internet users the option of adopting Chinese usernames in traditional and simplified Chinese characters for their e-mail addresses whenever they sign up for a cOntact account, Lycos Asia’s free web-based multi-lingual e-mail and communications product.
For a start, the arrangement between the two companies will cover the Greater China markets. Lycos Asia will also be moving to introduce a Thai contact username service to its portal site in Thailand in the very near future.
When asked if users would be charged consecutively after their first year of free usage, Mr Liang pointed out that the company has no plans to levy charges as yet. The company intends to retain its business model where advertising remains its source of income. However, it is possible that the service might be marketed later, for a fee, as a packaged product.
