Good Technology has announced that the GoodLink system for wireless messaging and corporate data access will be available for use with the Microsoft Windows Mobile Pocket PC OS.

"GoodLink enables enterprises to harness the power of the 2.5G networks, the newest devices and the massive developer communities around Windows Mobile and Palm OS. This enables their workforces to experience laptop power on Good-enabled handhelds."

In addition, customers will be able to use one system to support multiple carriers, devices, and operating systems, including Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PCs. Support for Windows Mobile allows customers to pick the device of their choice and support it with the broad array of applications available for that platform.

"GoodLink for Pocket PCs allows users to take maximum advantage of that time by leveraging GoodLink's integration with the broad range of devices and applications available for Windows Mobile.
