GSM 2005: new NOKIA Communicator Email Push Solution versus Blackberry
Interview-Appointments at the GSM World: Tel +49-611-973150,

Berlin/Cannes, 8. February 2005 – The new Email and PIM Push client for the NOKIA Communicator allows to deliver new Emails or Appointments directly to the users Communicator. These Emails can arrive on the users intranet groupware server like MS Exchange or LOTUS Domino or on any open Email Account. Until now, the user had to manually start the email transmission into their communicator. But true Email Push is seen as the key to the impressive success of the proprietary Blackberry solution and has made the Blackberry to the gadget of choice for many managers. “With the keyboard, the large screen and his powerful office capabilities, the Nokia Communicator was and is the first choice of road warriors around the world”, says space2go CEO Christian Huthmacher “by adding true Email Push to that device, we help make it even more compelling for business users that want to stay connected with their office.”

The new Email Push solution for the NOKIA Communicator is based on a technology by Germany based mobile software developer space2go. On the occasion of the GSM World Congress, February 14.-17.2005 in Cannes, space2go is presenting this new “killer application” for business users that is immediately available after the congress. First European operators have already ordered the solution for the Nokia Communicator and will start offering it to their customers in Q1 2005. In addition to true email push is the service also capable to wirelessly push new appointments, tasks or contacts to the users device.

In addition to the Email Push Client with several smart filters (for date range, email size, battery level) space2go is also the first vendor to offer email push to the new Communicator devices without the need to install any software. This is possible with the use of the build in Email Synchronisation client that is based on the open SyncML standard and the use of OMA (Open Mobile Alliance) Standards for WAP Push. The Nokia Email Sync Client can be started using a WAP Push message freeing the user or the Operator offering such a service from the need to deploy, support and maintain any third party software on the Nokia Communicator. “We expect to see more devices supporting this combination of build in Email Synchronisation and server alerted synchronisation in 2005” adds Huthmacher “after our Email Push solution is based on open OMA specification, we will be the first to support this new generation of clientless push solutions that will help Email Push to grow far beyond the expensive tool for a few managers it is today.”

space2go (Berlin), space2go is a leading European provider of software and services for the mobile Internet. The company specialises in access to personal data with mobile devices over the Internet.
space2go has developed wireless synchronisation solutions based on the SyncML standard and offers email push also for consumers with immedital access to any open Email service. space2go operates 2,5 million mobile mailboxes as an ASP for customers like Volkswagen AG, SIEMENS, ONE, Sunrise or others.
