Handspring signs deals to bring e-mail, corporate e-mail and instant messaging to Treo 600
Handspring, soon to be Palm, is really playing high on the mobility side. Deals with Visto, SEVEN and Good Technology will bring a suite of tools for the Treo 600 mobile user.

Good Technology is working to deliver the GoodLink™ 2.0 wireless corporate messaging and information access system to the Handspring Treo 600. GoodLink 2.0 is the newest version of Good's cradle-free real-time synchronized system for wirelessly connecting users with Microsoft Exchange and other critical enterprise information. The Handspring Treo 600 combines a world-class phone and PalmOS-based organizer with messaging, e-mail, and Web browsing features, and is expected to be available this fall on major carriers worldwide including the enhanced Sprint Nationwide PCS Network. The companies anticipate that the combination of GoodLink 2.0, the sleek Treo 600, and the breadth of Palm OS applications will create an exceptional wireless system for enterprise customers.

With GoodLink 2.0 and the Treo 600, Good and Handspring can offer businesses a sophisticated enterprise-class wireless email and data solution, on the most innovative converged device design," said Ed Colligan, founder, president and chief operating officer of Handspring. "GoodLink's 'Outlook-in-your-pocket' experience - including full email, calendar and contact synchronization - offers users an incredible benefit, offering a solution that doesn't compromise their wireless voice experience or their wireless data needs."

Visto plans to optimize its wireless email solutions to coincide with the launch of Treo 600 later this year. Visto offers Visto Mobile Access Solution, Server Edition, which provides departmental and enterprise access to corporate email without the need for a desktop computer. Visto's Desktop Solution is designed for individual access to corporate, Internet and POP3 email via smartphones such Treo Communicators, as well as enhanced, WAP capable devices. Both Visto solutions provide secure mobile access via standard wireless services.

Handspring and SEVEN today will work to integrate SEVEN's mobile email software with Handspring's Treo 600 smarphone for select mobile operators. SEVEN will offer Treo 600 users secure, real-time, over-the-air access to their Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, IMAP and POP email, PIM information and documents. SEVEN's software, which is currently available on the Treo 300 and 270,will be the default email client on all Treo 600 devices sold by Sprint PCS.

Announced last month Treo 600 series combines a phone, Palm OS 5-based organizer with messaging, email and web browsing features. The first Treo 600 devices are expected to be available worldwide later this year.
