GoodLink To Support Windows Mobile Smartphones

Always-on e-mail vendor also says that its software is now available to Sprint business subscribers.
Good Technology said Monday that its GoodLink software for delivering e-mail to mobile devices will soon support Windows Mobile smartphones.

Initially, that support will work on Motorola MPx220 and Audiovox SMT5600 smartphones, the company said in a statement. The softwar already works on Palm OS and Pocket PC devices. The company said Monday that, in addition to Windows Mobile smartphones, it itends to support Symbian-based smartphones from Nokia in the future.

The added capability is part of the company's GoodLink 4.5 upgrade that also supports the so-called call sender capability in which the user can respond to an e-mail with a phone call. The upgrade also can synchronize vCard contacts with Microsoft Outlook and the ability to work offline.

The upgrade with Windows Mobile smartphone support will be available in August. The company did not say when it would release support for Symbian-based Nokia smartphones.

In separate announcements, Good said that GoodLink is now available to Sprint mobile subscribers and that it would release GoodLink Compliance Manager. The latter software enables IT managers to prevent user access to corporate e-mail unless specific security and compliance applications are running on the mobile device. The software works with Credant's Mobile Guardian application.
