PalmSource announced they are working with Weblink Wireless to enable wireless e-mail, text messaging and mobile Internet access via WebLink's ReFLEX(R) network to wireless messaging devices running Palm OS 5.
The ReFLEX 25 platform offers exceptional coverage, higher signal strength and in-building penetration, providing enterprises with "always on" access to mission critical information and long lasting device battery life. ReFLEX enables two-way messaging by adding a response channel to a traditional paging system, allowing carriers to provide two-way messaging at a competitive cost. The messaging and email capabilities provided by the ReFLEX network will enhance the Palm OS's existing wireless capabilities, which include support for Bluetooth, GSM, CDMA, 2.5G/3G networks and, in Palm OS 5, 802.11 solutions at the system level.
