IBM Lotus Notes and Domino support in Nokia Business Center will expand support of corporate email systems, providing companies another choice to mobilize their workforces
January 23, 2006 Orlando, FL, USA - Nokia announced today that its mobile application platform, Nokia Business Center, will support IBM® Lotus Notes® and Domino® servers. Announced in September, Nokia Business Center enables collaborative business applications for the mobile world, starting with push email, so employees can free themselves from their desks and access their corporate email virtually any time, anywhere. Nokia Business Center complements other popular email solutions available for Nokia’s portfolio of business-optimized mobile devices. Nokia Business Center with Lotus Notes and Domino support is expected to be available for customers during Q1 2006.
“IBM Lotus Notes and Domino represent a significant part of the corporate email landscape. With today’s announcement, Nokia is addressing that market, providing companies and channel partners with a cost-effective, secure and scalable choice for mobile email and beyond,” said Dave Grannan, general manager of Nokia’s Enterprise Solutions Mobile Email group.
Nokia Business Center leverages the broad availability of standard mobile phones to access mobile email, providing companies with two options: a free standard client that comes with Nokia Business Center that offers basic push email capabilities, and a richly featured professional client that’s available for an upgrade fee. The Nokia Business Center currently supports mobile email over ten Nokia smartphones and communicators, with support for new models as they are announced.
