Automatic Wireless Sync Unveiled

Wireless Knowledge announced Monday its new Anystyle software for automatically synchronizing enterprise data on wireless devices.

The company said in a statement that the product is aimed at extending the capabilities of its Workstyle Server product, which provides mobile access to corporate e-mail, calendar and contact information.

The Anystyle software extends that functionality to to devices with offline capabilities, the company said in a statement.

Specifically, Anystyle automatically synchronizes data wirelessly whenever the device is within network coverage. It then stores the data on the device for offline access. That means users need not explicitly connect to the Internet or corporate network.

Initially, the company said Anystyle will be available for Research In Motion 950 and 957 pagers. It said support for Palm and Pocket PC devices will follow "soon." It initially works with Microsoft Exchange 5.5 and 2000 with Lotus Domino support coming later this year, the company said.

The company provided no pricing information. Wireless Knowledge is a joint venture of Microsoft and Qualcomm.
