There have, naturally, been lots of questions about our future mobility direction. Some of you will have already seen this mentioned in other places today but I am here to share a little direction with you. We decided some time ago that we would move our mobility story to ActiveSync which, for better or worse, is becoming the de facto standard mobility protocol, Blackberry aside. We will implement ActiveSync on the server, so that any ActiveSync enabled device will be able to talk natively to GroupWise. Of course, this includes iPhone support as well as Windows Mobile, Palm (new one included), Nokia Symbian OS (E and N series) in addition to many other devices.
We plan to deliver the solution to replace GMS this year. Right now I don't have any more information that I can share, but rest assured that it is our #1 priority. Of course, you may have also seen that we released GroupWise Mobile Server 3.0.1 for Linux into public beta last week - look on http://download.novell.com for the download. Finally, we continue to have a great relationship with RIM that rounds out our mobility strategy.
I hope that clears up some uncertainty, and we are excited about this direction and the benefits that it will give you and your companies.
I got a number of questions this week at GWAVACon so I felt I should update my blog. Many of you only support a few devices and want to know the best way to support them. Whether you support a few, or a lot of devices you should look at http://notifycorp.com/
They offer a hosted mobility solution that is a excellent choice for small business customers, or customers wanting to consolidate all of their mobility support
