IBM readies Lotus Notes Traveler for Android

The Android version of Traveler will ship Tuesday, but Android owners on AT&T's network will have to wait until next year

IBM is ready to ship an Android-compatible new version of its push-based e-mail software Lotus Notes Traveler, an IBM employee wrote in a blog posting Tuesday.

"Today, IBM is shipping Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.2.1. New in this release -- the Notes Traveler client for Android OS," wrote Ed Brill, IBM's director of product management for Lotus software, in a blog post Tuesday.

The new client gives access to e-mail, calendar and contacts on any Android version 2.x-based smartphone or tablet, Brill wrote.

There is however one problem: It can't be installed on Android-based devices from AT&T, due to the fact that AT&T only allows applications to be installed from the Android Marketplace. But the operator has indicated it will have a solution available in early next year, according to Brill.

The Android-compatible version of Lotus Notes Traveler is version 8.5.2.1.

Lotus Notes Traveler is already compatible with Apple's iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Version 8.5.2 of Traveller added support for the iPhone 4 and the iPad, with monitoring and control of security settings and device passwords for all Apple iOS devices, according to IBM's website.

There are also clients for Nokia's Symbian-based smartphones and Windows Mobile version 5, 6 and 6.1. The Traveler software is included in the Domino Messaging Client Access License and Domino Enterprise Client Access License, according to IBM.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
