IBM Enhances Relationships With Mobile Partners Motorola, Nokia, RIM, Sybase and Commontime


IBM (NYSE: IBM) announced today to more than 7,000 customers and Business Partners at its annual Lotusphere conference that five mobile software companies will be included in a new CD-based Mobile Bonus Pack that will ship with the next release of Lotus Domino software 8.0.1 due next month.

Lotus Notes Traveler, which was announced in September, will provide automatic real-time wireless replication of email including attachments, read and unread indicators, calendar, contacts, personal journal and the Personal Information Manager applications on mobile devices running the Microsoft Windows Mobile 5 or 6 platform available from many device manufacturers. This capability will also ship with Lotus Domino 8.0.1.

The pack includes a CD that contains information about the mobile solutions from IBM Lotus mobile Business Partners that support Lotus Notes and Domino software.

The partners who will be included in the pack are Commontime, Motorola - Good Technology Group, Nokia, Research In Motion (RIM) and Sybase iAnywhere.

Lotus Notes and Domino software, licensed to more than 135 million users, was developed with input from more than 25,000 customers. Shipping since August, Lotus Notes 8 software transforms the inbox into an integrated workspace, bringing together email, calendar, instant messaging, office productivity tools and collaboration applications.

“This support greatly increases the mobile ecosystem for the latest version of Lotus Notes and Domino tools,” said Kevin Cavanaugh, vice president, IBM Lotus Software. “Many call Lotus Notes 8 software the ’desktop of the future.’ To people who travel a lot, this desktop refers to the screens on their mobile devices.”

IBM has been previewing Lotus Notes Traveler running on several devices at Lotusphere. This solution can run directly on the existing Lotus Domino server or on a stand-alone Domino server that acts as a mobile proxy to customers’ existing Domino servers.
