Microsoft, British Telecommunications and AT&T said yesterday they would team up to offer worldwide mobile multimedia service through wireless devices over high-speed networks.


Financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed.


The mobile service, based on Microsoft technology, will be deployed over existing and planned high-speed networks and is expected to enable customers to use wireless devices for e-mail and electronic calendars on a wider scale.


Subscribers will be able to play interactive games, read electronic books and listen to music over the network.


The companies plan to test the technology in the fall and launch the new service shortly thereafter.
