Ericsson Enterprise has introduced the latest generation of its Ericsson Mobile Organizer (EMO) that offers enterprise users
access to corporate e-mail and other Personal Information Management (PIM) data on the move. Ericsson says that unlike a number of competitive systems, the new EMO 5.0 is a true 'push' solution that offers up-to-date information without requirements for proprietary hardware, special devices or operator tie-ins.
EMO 5.0 provides push e-mail and calendar data to users of most Symbian smartphones and Microsoft Windows Mobile Smartphones or Pocket PC. E-mails, calendar updates and meeting requests are automatically delivered to the user via the mobile network. Changes in the mobile device's inbox are instantly mirrored in the user's desktop mailbox, and vice versa. EMO 5.0 offers secure access, with built-in end-to-end data encryption.
There are three editions of EMO available. The Enterprise Edition is targeted at enterprises with Microsoft or Lotus mail servers. The Professional Edition gives individual users mobile access to corporate mail using their own PC as a server. The Internet Edition targets users of public e-mail services.
