Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Wireless Knowledge (WK), the Microsoft-Qualcomm wireless joint venture company, has announced the first trial of its Revolv mobile data service, in conjunction with Canadian outfit Bell Mobility. Although WK says it isn't committed to particular standards, the Bell Mobility trial strokes both partners adequately. The Canadian company is committed to the Qualcomm-backed CDMA digital wireless standard, and as Revolv is intended to allow mobile executives to access Exchange, corporate data and Internet via wireless, Microsoft BackOffice is the other major watchword. The service is scheduled to go commercial in the summer (Canadian summer, presumably), but Bell Mobility is already offering it to wireless carriers on an OEM basis. This suggests that Bell is putting a fair bit into the project, and may well turn out to be critical to WK's ability to get the service out to a broader community. We should also be looking for WK to announce some deals with GSM services, and services outside of the US. This could prove to be tricky, as the CDMA-BackOffice tag won't help the sales pitch in the rest of the world. ®
