IBM has finally released its Lotus Notes Traveler, which brings the portable email client to Android 2.x mobile devices, including tablet PCs.
Traveler provides two-way, over-the-air synchronisation of mail, calendar, and contacts data in real-time between Lotus Domino servers and currently, “select” handheld devices.
According to IBM, updates made on the device, such as sending a new mail message or changing a calendar entry, are synchronised with the server upon connecting to the network.
Traveler also allows users to extend their desktop messaging and collaboration environment out to Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod, Nokia and Symbian 3rd and 5th edition devices, and Windows Mobile 6.x devices.
IBM is offering Lotus Notes Traveler as a “no-cost” mobile option for customers with up-to-date IBM Lotus Domino server entitlements.
The company also notes that Notes Traveler servers must be running 8.5.2 to support Android devices.
