Mobile communication explosion

More and more the line between phones, PDAs and computers are blurring.
Cingular Wireless announced the launch of two new enterprise-class wireless e-mail solutions, Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition and Xpress Mail Network Edition. Based on software from SEVEN(R), Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition operates behind the corporate firewall and Xpress Mail Network Edition is a managed service hosted by Cingular. Both solutions are suitable for organizations of all sizes and are designed to work on a variety of mobile devices, including palmOne’s Treo 600, offered by Cingular.
“Cingular is focused on providing affordability, flexibility and simplicity in wireless e-mail for our business customers, which means multiple devices connecting to multiple e-mail platforms with enterprise-class security, that are easily deployed and managed,” said Jim Ryan, Cingular’s vice president of data product management and business marketing. “Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition and Xpress Mail Network Edition are powerful, affordable e-mail solutions that are suitable for all employees — not just executives or road warriors.”
“Cingular has been a leader driving the first wave of wireless email adoption in North America. By adding Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition and Xpress Mail Network Edition into their wireless email portfolio, Cingular is providing a compelling and affordable option for businesses seeking a flexible, device-agnostic solution,” said Kent Thexton, president and co-CEO of SEVEN. “We are pleased to work with Cingular to remove the high cost and complexity from enterprise-wide email deployments.”
