IBM set to roll Notes hosting service

Company also working to integrate apps, social networking tools

The module lets users link and synchronize information between Notes and iEnterprises's iExtensions CRM for Lotus Notes, and extend data to mobile devices.

"We are talking about being able to decompose a set of functions like unified communications or Lotus Connections and put them in the context of business applications as opposed to just e-mail or calendar applications," said Picciano.

IBM is doing similar integration with SAP around something called Project Atlantic, which is an integration of Notes with SAP Business Suite.

IBM is also working on a set of hosted business application services code-named Bluehouse that will factor into integrating applications and social networking tools.

IBM says the technological underpinnings of these integrations will tap into Web services technologies such as REST and Web 2.0 techniques such as mashups, feeds and widgets.

iEnterprises is expected to ship the Social Networking for CRM Module next month.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
