Most file sharing in businesses is done through email, which clogs up your mail server and multiplies versions of files confusingly. SharePoint is a runaway success, but there are plenty of alternatives that don't require you to run your own servers (or find ways of making them available to external partners).

I've been using a Slingbox and the SlingPlayer Mobile clients for years, but last year I moved to the Hava player because they have free Nokia Internet Tablet and S60 clients. Slingbox now has a SlingPlayer Mobile client for selected S60 devices, but it does not work on the very popular Nokia E71. Dave Zatz sent me an email notice about a new post he wrote on the apparent hesitancy of Sling Media to develop a SlingPlayer Mobile client for the upcoming Palm WebOS while they look to focus on the Google Android platform next.
After seeing my buddy Rafe's OLED display on the new Samsung I7710 S60 device I pulled the trigger on a new Nokia N85 when the North American versions became available last week. I found a decent deal at Newegg and trust them so I placed my order and to my delight it arrived on Tuesday, the 23rd. One of the first things I loaded up was the Nokia Email client, but unfortunately I kept getting an "Unable to connect with information provided." error and tried to connect for the last few days without any success.
An interesting question from the weekend email bag:"If you take the data provided by NetApplications as a semi-reliable indicator of market share then Linux has three times market share of the iPhone platform (0.91% for Linux vs 0.32% for the iPhone). Given that Linux has three times the market share of the iPhone, why is the iPhone considered to be a major success while Linux is still perceived as struggling to achieve relevance?"
New Scientist describes two new patents granted to Nokia and Motorola which plan to improve the batteries of our favorite handhelds (see below for tips on how to find a full version of a patent). While Nokia wants to develop self-powered billboards, Motorola is building a liquid crystal display (LCD) that incorporates a solar panel behind the screen of a phone. Other companies have tried to put solar cells behind phones' screens without success. Motorola says its approach is different because this new LCD will act both as a display and a light collecting device for the solar cell. No date is given about the availability of such a solar-powered phone.
OK, you regular readers of this blog are just going to have to live with the fact that I am a huge thumb keyboard fan and like to talk about devices using this form factor. While thumb keyboards may not be perfect, I think for text messaging and email composition they serve a vital purpose as you can see with the success of the RIM BlackBerry platform.
The company is having problems with support for its Veritas email archiving product, but says it is a victim of its own success
lekkimworld: Is the lack of Java skills in the Notes/Domino developer community the Achilles´ heel of IBM?
Mikkel Heisterberg totally gets it in termsof where Notes is going and some of the opportunities, and challenges,of Notes in the "Hannover" release (emphasis mine):Thoughsupported it will be very difficult, if not impossible, to build the kindsof composite, networked applications that will be possible with Hannoverusing LotusScript. You'll need Java for these kinds of applications. Thisbrings us back to IBM since this fact will be a real Achilles' heal [sic]when it comes to the adoption and getting the real benefit from the newHannover client. The success of the Hannover client and the applicationspossible will rest on getting the customers to use and new features andbegin to develop composite applications. I don'tknow if Mikkel has my phone tapped, but this is exactly the message I'vebeen delivering to colleagues over the last couple of weeks. It iscritical that Notes"Hannover" demonstratebest-in-class usability and all the other great things coming, but themain driver for upgrades will be the new value in "Hannover"-- the fact that for the first time, Notes is more than just a client forDomino. This is a complex thought. The attention paid to "Hannover"since its announcement last May has been primarily around the major refreshof the user interface. This gets everybody's attention , eye candyalways does. But "improved user interface", no matter howamazing the new UI is (and from everything I've seen so far, it totallyrocks), won't necessarily be enough for the CFO to approve an IT projectto upgrade Notes. Other new things, like activitesand compositeapplications -- now it getsinteresting. If you remember back a few years to when Lotus first announced "collaborationfor J2EE", one of the driving factors for starting to build what isnow known as Workplace Collaboration Services/Workplace Designer/WorkplaceManaged Client was the coming market shift to Java/J2EE as a mainstreamapplication development language. I disagree with Mikkel that IBMhasn't been promoting Java to Lotus developers -- look at Lotusphere agendasfor three years running now, and it's clear from jumpstarts to the breakoutsand BoFs that IBM has. But maybe still not enough. Becausemany many organizations report now that they are building all new applicationsin J2EE (or in .NET or both), and are less-inclined to build new apps inanything else -- no matter how easy it is to get a Notes application upand running. "Hannover" represents an opportunity to unify two applicationdevelopment worlds -- Notes developers building Notes apps and Java developersbuilding Java apps.The community at large needs to skill-upand get to grips with Java. Now is a good a time as any to get started- rather sooner than later. The reward will be apparent once Hannover isreleased. Composite applications represent a transformation-- Notes does more than just Domino applications. Understanding thisnow will prepare for "Hannover", and how to better leverage yourNotes investment in the future.

Vodafone's BlackBerry 7100v is a fair mobile email device so long as you don't need to handle graphics, large spreadsheets or complex documents. But as a handheld/phone combo it's eclipsed by more capable Palm OS- and Windows Mobile-based offerings.
