Cingular Expands Support for Good Mobile Messaging

Cingular Wireless is now supporting Good Mobile Messaging to enterprises using Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes using a number of new smartphones, including the recent introductions of the Cingular 8525, BlackJack, Nokia E62, Cingular 3125, Palm Treo 680 and HP iPAQ hw6920.

Cingular became the first carrier to sell Good Mobile Messaging directly to its customers in May 2005. Since then, Good-Cingular activations have grown more than 300 percent. Thousands of enterprises are running Good Mobile Messaging on the Cingular network today, including Deloitte, Ariba, Vignette, Electronic Arts, McGraw Hill, Perot Systems, Silicon Valley Bank, SanDisk and Avaya

  • In November, Motorola agreed to acquire Good Technology, a supplier of enterprise mobile computing software and service, for an undisclosed sum. Good's mobile messaging client is supported on the new Motorola Q handheld, among other devices. Motorola said the acquisition will extend its mobile computing capabilities and increase its enterprise client base.
