    Notify Technology Licenses Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync Technology

    Notify incorporates the Exchange ActiveSync Protocol into its wireless software products.

    SAN JOSE, CA February 24, 2009 Notify Technology Corporation (OTC BB NTFY), today announced that it has licensed Microsoft Corporations Exchange ActiveSync Protocol technology. Exchange ActiveSync is a communication protocol that provides wireless push email, calendar, contacts and task synchronization. Exchange ActiveSync is available on all Windows Mobile-based devices and Exchange ActiveSync-enabled devices offered through Microsoft partners like Apple, Palm, and Nokia. Notify has incorporated the Exchange ActiveSync protocol into its NotifyLink and just recently announced NotifySync for BlackBerry product. The new NotifySync product is targeted at providing BlackBerry users a simple direct connect that provides wireless push email, calendar, contacts and task synchronization to those email platforms such as the Microsoft Exchange Server, the Kerio MailServer, the Zimbra Collaboration Suite, and the CommuniGate Pro Server platform which all utilize the Exchange ActiveSync protocol technology as their primary mobility interface.

    Increasingly, people depend on their mobile phones for anywhere, anytime access to digital information while on the move, said Craig Shank, general manager of interoperability for Microsoft Corp. This is where creating interoperability between mobile platforms comes to play. Were pleased that Notifys licensing of the intellectual property rights to use the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync protocols in its NotifySync product will open up new opportunities for BlackBerry consumers.

    We are excited to publicly announce our licensing of Microsofts Exchange ActiveSync Protocol used by our NotifyLink and NotifySync products. We would like to thank Microsoft for the opportunity they have given us in licensing their intellectual property to create exciting new products for the mobility market, said Paul DePond, President and Founder of Notify Technology. Over the past year, our email collaboration suite partners, who have incorporated Exchange ActiveSync for their mobility solution, have been giving us a loud and clear message of their need of an ActiveSync solution for their mobile users who only want to use a BlackBerry.

    Looks interesting. How is this different than what your company was doing previously with ActiveSync? Did you merely create an ActiveSync-like product before and this is the real deal?
    Also, would you do us the favor up giving us the pricing here? I understand it is somewhere in the neighborhood of $140 for the first year, then $35/year, afterwards? Are there different tiers?
    Finally, if this is true ActiveSync now, will it be compatible with Google's new Google Sync that they are using on the iphone and Windows Mobile, where they directly set-up with AS? Meaning, will this be compatible with Blackberry devices and Google?
    Thanks.
