Yesterday IBM announced IBM Lotus Notes Traveler, a new feature of Domino 8.0.1 to support push mail to Windows Mobile devices at no additional cost. This announcement was in addition to the existing partnerships with RIM, Nokia, Motorola’s Good Technology, CommonTime, iAnywhere, and Visto.
The Press Release gives details of the support.
Mobile support for Lotus Notes and Domino Web Access users through IBM Lotus Notes Traveler– Following the shipping of Lotus Notes and Domino 8 that began worldwide in August, IBM is announcing Lotus Notes Traveler, a new client for Lotus Notes and Domino 8.0.1. Currently scheduled to be available in the first quarter of 2008, Lotus Notes Traveler will provide out-of-the-box, mobile support for Lotus Notes and Domino Web Access users, enabling access to Lotus Domino mail from Microsoft Windows Mobile devices. As currently planned, Lotus Notes Traveler will provide automatic, real-time replication of email, including attachments, calendar, address book, journal and to-do’s and will work over all wired and wireless connections.
It will be interesting to see how this compares to the native support in Exchange 2003 and 2007 and whether it will scale to the same level as our solution!
