In addition to launching NewsGator 2.0 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NewsGator Technologies announced its new NewsGator Online Services.
The new services allows users to search for content, including exclusive subscriber-only content, and read this content on any device. These services are available for anyone - not just NewsGator for Outlook users.
Users who subscribe to NewsGator Online Services can synchronize their subscriptions across multiple machines. This system ensures that subscriptions follow users wherever they go, users never have to read the same content twice (unless they choose to), and even supports multiple subscription lists so users can have separate, but overlapping, subscription lists at home and at the office.
NewsGator Online Services includes three content reader editions, allowing users to read their subscribed content any time, any place, and on any device:
Web Edition: NewsGator Online Services provides a web-based content reader, which allows users to read content they have subscribed to from any web browser.
POP Edition: NewsGator Online Services allows users to read their subscribed feeds in any email client. This includes Outlook Express and Eudora on Windows, Apple Mail and Entourage on the Mac, and any other email client that supports POP3.
Mobile Edition: NewsGator Online Services allows users to read their subscribed feeds on any mobile device that supports HTML, including mobile wireless phones and PDA's (Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Palm OS included). This is a powerful feature for road warriors who use mobile devices to access information while away from home or the office.
The service also provides exclusive, subscriber-only content to its subscribers. Initial media launch partners for premium content include InfoWorld and others to be announced soon.
NewsGator Online Services is a subscription service, and will be available on January 19, 2004 at . Pricing starts at US$5.95/month per user.
