Recently I’ve bought Samsung Galaxy S2 (GT-I9100) with Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread system. Truly, it is an awesome device with Live Wallpaper, Widget, a lot of free software, corning gorilla glass (anti stretch glass), it is superior compare with iphone4 (apple should fear this).
I’ve already knew since Lotus Notes Traveler 18.104.22.168 has support Android devices. In my recent article, i was wrote that Lotus Notes Traveler has support IOS (iphone, ipad, ipod) and it was easy to setup, no additional software installed just use Exchange Active Sync Account, your lotus notes mail will be deliver to your devices.
But in android system, you must to install Lotus Notes Traveler application in order to push your lotus notes email but unfortunately, it wasn’t running natively. It means if you want to check your calendar, you must tap traveler calendar icon and if you want to check your mail, you must tap traveler mail icon, except for contact you can view lotus notes address book natively (built in within your devices).
Even may be you have Exchange Active Sync account on your devices like mine, it is not working (or may be you’ve some tricks? please share and write comment below this article).
I know, Android system has been installed on many devices not like Symbian only works on Nokia, IOS work only on iphone, etc devices, it means more add complexity but I think IBM should think to make Traveler running natively not through additional apps, so we can see calendar, contacts and mail even widget in Android Devices built-in software not additional software like Symbian, Apple does even on Blackberry no additional apps to push/sync your email, contact and calendar.
Hope IBM Lotus team will read my blog…
