Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

DataViz has begun shipping the Palm version of its RoadSync mobile data application, the company said today.

The arrival of the Palm release, pitched at Palm's Treo 600 and Treo 650 smart phone products, follows the launch earlier this month of a version for Symbian-based devices running the UIQ user interface, such as Sony Ericsson's P910i.

RoadSync provides client-side access to Microsoft Exchange Server 2003's ActiveSync facility, already enabled on Windows Mobile-based devices but missing from other operating systems.

Unlike the UIQ release, RoadSync for Palm does not support calendar and contact synchronisation, only email transfers. That's why it costs $50 a head instead of the Symbian version's $99 price tag. The Treo 650's own email app VersaMail already supports a single Exchange Server email account.

A similarly specced version for Java 2 MIDP-supporting handsets is due to ship later this month. Full-feature versions of RoadSync targeting Series 80 and Series 60 Symbian handsets are due in August and September, respectively, DataViz said.

The company is pitching RoadSync at businesses running their own Exchange Server 2003 - or outsourcing its operation - and who want to avoid the fees demanded by a number of well-known mobile email providers, such as RIM/Blackberry, Good, Visto and so on. ®
