T-Mobile announced earlier today that Exchange support for the Sidekick has finally arrived! It comes in the form of an application named Sidekick Sync, which you’ll need to grab from the Download Catalog. It’s not live yet, but when it is, it will have a recurring fee of $4.99/month and of course requires a data plan. It will support “real time push email, attachment viewing, full sync capabilities, full read and respond functionality and configurable sync schedules”. In addition to all the email handling it will also sync contacts and calendars from an Exchange server. Like some of the other new software features of the Sidekick LX 2009, this one was outsourced to another company, this Remoba was behind development of the Sidekick Sync app.
T-Mobile says that Exchange support was requested by a number of users and I’m sure this will please the handful of you out there that want to get your corporate email on your Sidekick, but how many of you guys out there are actually using a Sidekick for corporate work that requires an Exchange server? How many people actually know what Exchange is? 🙂
