iAnywhere launches AvantGo for BlackBerry
Posted on 19-Apr-2005 00:05. | Tags Filed under: News.



iAnywhere Solutions, Inc., has announced the upcoming release of AvantGo for the BlackBerry platform from Research In Motion (RIM). The company is previewing the mobile Internet service's support for BlackBerry to attendees of the Wireless Enterprise Symposium show. AvantGo for BlackBerry will be available for general release within the next 30 days.

"We're pleased to be able to offer AvantGo to millions of BlackBerry users," said Neil Versen, senior director of AvantGo at iAnywhere. "Once used primarily for email, BlackBerry devices are increasingly being used by the business user for a wider range of applications, including access to Internet news and information. Our support for BlackBerry is a further step in our ongoing efforts to provide mobile professionals with wireless access to information-rich mobile Internet channels from a broad range of popular devices."

With over seven million unique subscribers, AvantGo has been in the business of delivering mobile content to smartphones and PDAs since 1999. The free service will wirelessly connect BlackBerry users to specially formatted web sites ("channels") including AccuWeather, Bloomberg, CNET, Forbes, Hollywood.com, The Golf Channel, Reuters, RollingStone.com, The Sporting News, Wired News and more. Users can also create personal channels to view family sites, local news, niche sites, church and club sites, workout schedules, and more so they are always in touch, even when on the go.

The initial release of AvantGo for the BlackBerry provides wireless access to the service and will be available within the next 30 days. A pre-release version is currently available for download.
