Users of personal digital assistants (PDAs) from IBM Corp and 3Com Corp can now remotely access data from their enterprise Lotus Domino server thanks to a new wireless communications solution from Lotus Development Corp. The Cambridge, Massachusetts software vendor yesterday introduced Wireless Domino Access (WDA); server-based software that provides wireless connectivity to Lotus Domino mail, date books, address books and to do lists for IBM WorkPad and 3Com PalmPilot and Palm III organizers. To take advantage of the service, users also have to be equipped with Novatel Wireless’ Minstrel or Minstrel Plus modem running Unwired Planet’s (UP) microbrowser, coupled with wireless services from AT&T to provide the link from the PDA to the Domino server. Users of suitably-equipped mobile phones running UP’s browser, such as those available through AT&T’s PocketNet service, can also link up to the software to access data. Lotus said Wireless Domino Access is available immediately, for an estimated retail price of $3,000, as part of a package with Lotus Pager Gateway Release 2.03. The software requires a Pentium or faster PC with at least 64 MB of RAM, Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 4.0 or above and Domino Server Release 4.54 or later. Lotus will demonstrate the technology at next week’s Internet World show in New York.
