theKompany and ThinSoft are working together to bundle tkcJabber and WinConnect Z, in a deal that will have them co-marketing the products on each other's site. WinConnect Z is especially interesting because it allows remote access to a Windows PC.

Shawn Gordon, theKompany CEO, says that ThinSoft approached him because of theKompany's reputation as "the leader in Zaurus software. They wanted to see what we have that would be kind of synergistic."
Gordon says that with ThinSoft's WinConnect and theKompany's tkcJabber, enterprises can equip their staffs with Zaurus PDAs and turn them loose. "Within the enterprise, say IBM, people are walking around with [PDAs]." He says that with new applications being developed by theKompany and ThinSoft, among others, PDAs are becoming the natural replacement for laptops -- in fact, they are better than laptops because they are so small and can be used in a discreet fashion.

For example, if they're using Zauruses, they can chat with tkcJabber, do remote admin on a user's PC or check their Windows email with WinConnect Z, all while attending a meeting - and now they can do collaborative whiteboarding with tkcWhiteboard, which uses Jabber technology and Jabber servers. tkcWhiteboard is not part of the ThinSoft deal as of yet.

WinConnect Z adheres to the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 5.1. With it, you can access a Windows remote terminal server or Windows NT, 2000 or XP Professional computer.

Gordon says theKompany is looking to move into the enterprise space instead of focusing so much on "retail." Looks like they're encouraging that at the online store, where theKompany provides discounts for bulk purchases. You can get 25% off the final price if you buy 10 or more copies at the same time.

To purchase the tkcJabber and WinConnect Z bundle and save $10.00, visit either ThinSoft or theKompany. The bundle is available for $59.95. tkcJabber by itself is $19.95, and WinConnect Z can be had for $49.95.
