IBM Lotus Traveler II

I’ve got some more details on the S60 implementation of Lotus Notes Traveler v8.5, and its looking VERY good indeed!

Nokia S60 device support

Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5 is now supported on Nokia S60 devices.
Lotus Notes Traveler provides the following functions for Nokia S60 devices:

* Automatic, two-way, over-the-air synchronization for e-mail, calendar, tasks, and contacts
* One-way synchronization from server to device for Notebook entries
* Read / Unread mark updates
* Full Email retrieval for truncated mail messages
* Attachment synchronization
* Data filtering options for email, calendar, and tasks
* Automated and manual problem reporting
* Email folder management
* Calendar invitation processing
* Integration with Lotus Mobile Connect

Using a Nokia S60 device

IBM Lotus Notes Traveler supports Nokia manufactured devices running the following operating system versions:

* Series 60 3rd edition
* Series 60 3rd edition feature pack 1
* Series 60 3rd edition feature pack 2

Lotus Notes Traveler for S60 client requires approximately 1 MB of free storage on the device to install Lotus Notes Traveler. If you need to collect traces or logs, you will need up to another 2 MB of free main device storage. Storage required for PIM and e-mail data is not included in the estimates and varies by user depending on how much data you are synchronizing to the device. Note that if you need to download the SIS install file to main device storage, then you will need an additional 1 MB of storage to hold the installation image. However the SIS file can be deleted after installation.

All delivery methods of downloading the Lotus Notes Traveler client installation file to a mobile device are supported. The following list includes some of the methods:

* Over-the-air (OTA) connect to the Client Download Web site

As you can see both IBM & Nokia have been hard at work and getting this application up and running in just shy of 2mths. This feature set is functionally on par with that of WM 6.1 Professional & Smartphone Edition devices & with RIM Blackberry platform devices.

Now if only I can get another S60 device, as I had to sell my beloved, yes beloved E71. My contract was up for my job and financial times as they are currently I needed to help the family out – kids needed a little something and the wife needed a small gift. This year I’m going to make it up to them BIG time and S60 is going to be there along the way taking those photos, videos, and lovely moments of happy times ahead.
