IBM Releases Beta Version of Lotus Notes Traveler, Targets Business Market
IBM recently announced a beta version of their Lotus Notes Traveler for Android handsets. The app works much like their iPhone title and is designed to be a free collaboration tool with two-way synchronization of e-mail, calendar and contacts.
Users can also view all the above data on their device (running Android 2.0+, it’s aimed mostly at the Nexus One and Motorola Droid). IBM hopes to widen their spectrum of business device software with this move, as they already have Lotus Notes software for Symbian, Windows Mobile, the iPhone, and the iPad. This software should be a boon for businesspeople that travel frequently and can’t always get to a computer to use Lotus Notes, and another feature Android can boast for Enterprise applications.
