Funambol Launches on the Storm

David Murphy

Funambol, which provides open source mobile cloud sync and push email solutions, has announced the availability of its software for the BlackBerry Storm. The Funambol BlackBerry Storm sync client enables users to keep their contacts, calendars, tasks and notes in sync between the Storm, a Funambol server, and email systems and desktop apps. The Funambol BlackBerry Storm push email client lets users get free push email on their handset from popular email systems. Storm users can use the software for free by signing up for an account on the myFUNAMBOL Portal here.
The BlackBerry Storm touchscreen handset, like iPhone and Android, raises the bar for Smartphone manufacturers, says Funambol CEO, Fabrizio Capobianco. At the same time, users increasingly expect to seamlessly access their contacts, calendars, email, and more, on their phone, the web and desktops. We are excited that Funambol now enables Storm users to access this information, anytime, anywhere.
The Funambol BlackBerry Storm sync and push email clients enable users to sync contacts, calendars, tasks, notes and email with a Funambol server, including myFUNAMBOL. The Funambol server can sync with Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, AOL Mail and Hotmail, and desktop apps such as Outlook and Thunderbird. The sync client is part of the latest Funambol monthly phone pack that is in Funambol's commercial Carrier Edition software and that has been deployed on myFUNAMBOL. This phone pack also includes the latest Funambol Symbian sync client that supports new Nokia phones, enabling users to keep PIM data in sync between their phones, the web and desktops.
