Open Source Takes the Mystery Out of Mobile E-mail

Open Source Takes the Mystery Out of Mobile E-mail

This session will be specifically tailored for developers and IT managers working on mobile e-mail and other mobile applications. While proprietary mobile e-mail companies protect their code and profits, the mobile open source approach boasts a transparent community of developers contributing to the code. This session will equip developers with the information they need to build mobile e-mail and applications that support mobile services regardless of network type or device manufacturer.  A complete overview of the Sync4j open source mobile application server will be included. Funambol's Sync4j provides mobile device synchronization, provisioning and management and is the open source alternative to Microsoft and Research in Motion.
