IBM has launched its Android client for Lotus Notes Traveler. This push-based e-mail software gives access to e-mail, calendar and contacts on any Android version 2.x-based smartphone or tablet.
Few things to note about the app:
- Your Notes Traveler server must be running 8.5.2 to support the Android devices. This has the nice bonus of supporting the Traveler mobile installer, so that the software on the device side is always up-to-date.
- Having said that, the Traveler client for Android still cannot be installed on AT&T devices. This is due to their approach to device security; apps can only be installed from the Android Marketplace. AT&T has indicated they will have a solution available in early 2011.
- If you have been running the beta, you’ll need to uninstall and reinstall in order to run the final version.
“Today, IBM is shipping Lotus Notes Traveler 18.104.22.168. New in this release — the Notes Traveler client for Android OS,” wrote Ed Brill, IBM’s director of product management for Lotus software, in a blog post on Tuesday.
The application is not available in Android Market right now; it is expected for market released in early 2011.
