Samsung Tunes Windows Mobile for UC

Samsung and mobile unified-communications pioneer DiVitas Networks are working to make enterprise telephony functions work better on dual-mode handsets using Microsoft Windows Mobile.

Mobile UC can make cell phones work like desktop business phones on both office LANs and cellular networks, while also adding presence and instant messaging capabilities. It can save cellular minutes by shifting calls onto Wi-Fi as well as simplifying users' lives by providing a consistent set of features inside and outside the office.

But this ambitious vision is a hard fit with most mobile platforms, which weren't designed to support these features, according to DiVitas founder and CEO Vivek Khuller. The company's collaboration with Samsung will finally put dual-mode Windows Mobile phones on par with purpose-built Wi-Fi handsets in terms of battery life and Wi-Fi performance, as well as addressing some other issues, Khuller said.    (Source: Stephen Lawson, IDG News Service)
