Notes travels

So finally there will be a built-in mobile solution in Lotus Domino. IBM will release a product called Lotus Traveller in 2008 within the code stream of Lotus Notes 8.0.1.
At DNUG in Dresden this June I read on one of the roadmap charts a feature called “push mail” in the 8.0.1 release, but nobody could give me more information about this.

So while Ed Brill talks about “push mail” the official announcement today calls it “real-time replication”. From what I can see the solution is not a separate PIM client on the device – hopefully it uses the apps on the Windows Mobile device.

While we are working with iAnywhere/Onebridge, Nokia and RIM to mobilize data I am very curious if someone has more information about the technical solution – and about the licensing model. It will be probably free of charge to compete with Microsofts free of charge mobile service for Exchange.

Update: It IS free of charge. No additional cost. I did not read that point in the announcment.
