NetMotion Wireless has introduced the Mobility XE mobile VPN for Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC and Pocket PC Phone Edition devices. The software secures enterprise data communications and makes mobile workers more productive when using wireless data networks to access corporate information and applications.
Supported devices include the Palm Treo 700W, Verizon XV6700, Sprint PPC 6700, Cingular 8125, Dell Axim X51v, HP iPAQ hx2790 and Symbol MC70.
The company says enterprises are quickly adopting Windows Mobile 5.0 powered devices that converge cellular voice with high-speed data access for mobile workers.

Mobility XE has been designed to provide higher mobile computing productivity over wireless networks by enabling seamless roaming over multiple networks, protecting application sessions against crashes caused by coverage gaps and doubling wireless network throughput.
