palmOne Licenses Microsoft Exchange Server Synchronization
palmOne, Inc. has licensed Microsoft's Exchange Server ActiveSync protocol to enable the delivery of wireless and direct synchronization between Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 and future Treo smartphones. The company is planning to use the technology to extend the company's device support for Microsoft Exchange Server by adding capability for wireless server-based synchronization.

End-users will benefit by having the capability to link to Exchange Server 2003 data, including email and calendar information, using palmOne's VersaMail client. The Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync will work with the new Treo line of products and palmOne will evaluate the possibility of rolling it out to handhelds at a later date. Current Treo 600 products are not compatible with Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.

"palmOne has built its brand on making complex technologies easy to use, and having wireless synchronization to Exchange 2003 available out-of-the-box will enhance our smartphone customers' experience while slashing company IT costs," said Ed Colligan, president, palmOne. "Key to offering the premier mobile-email-access device is our open-platform approach, resulting in a full spectrum of choices for individuals to CIOs at the largest enterprises."

"The combination of the Exchange Server ActiveSync protocol and mobile solutions from palmOne provides customers with a direct means of extending wireless access to corporate email from their palmOne devices in the field," said Dave Thompson, vice president of Exchange Server at Microsoft. "We believe that the combination of Treo smartphones and Exchange Server 2003 can significantly enhance end-user productivity by providing a secure, direct, easily implemented wireless email while simultaneously lowering IT costs by eliminating the need for middleware."
