Nokia press release does not mention Lotus

by Volker Weber

Nokia Messaging comes to Nokia devices with support for Mail on Ovi and the world's most popular email and IM solutions

It covers Nokia Messaging, Mail on Ovi, Live Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail and - I quote - "corporate mobile email (Microsoft Exchange Activesync)". At the iPhone 3G launch, IBM did not have anything to show. Now they do and their partner still does not communicate it.

True. But there was a press release on 20.11. :

That I know. What I was looking at is the press kit for Nokia World, which got all the attention.

Our team at Nokia World was plenty busy in joint meetings with Nokia and press, analysts, and customers along with at our stand. I'm not sure why we weren't mentioned in that particular release but the timing of the standalone release was to build momentum into Nokia World.

I guess the fellow journalists seem to have ignored the momentum and looked at the Nokia World press kit. I have not seen Traveler mentioned in the Nokia World reports. Have you?

The iPhone has a mail setup agent which puts Exchange right into the customer face. As has the latest Symbian platform. You may want to make sure you get your spot in there as well. Nokia users can set up their Exchange account from there, and the phone will install the Mail for Exchange client. Would be good if it did the same with the Traveler client.

I came across a link to a Nokia push email beta: or . I am currently testing it on my new E71 :-) and so far it looks quite good (and it pushes all right). In settings the sync is easily disabled when roaming.

Found these links via which also had a post about a nice little background sync tool for Symbian called swim.
