In the realm of dual-mode fixed-mobile convergence (FMC), one of the biggest barriers to broad adoption is the narrow scope of smartphone platforms supported. Agito and DiVitas, the two top independent dual-mode FMC vendors have struggled to come together with some of the platform makers… A big stumbling block for adoption has long been the lack of dual-mode FMC support for Research In Motion’s BlackBerry platform, still THE enterprise smartphone platform of choice.
In June we reported that Agito finally managed to add BlackBerry suppoprt, expanding beyond the 40 or so Nokia Symbian and Windows Mobile devices it had already been supporting.
DiVitas, on the other hand had been quiet for awhile on the BlackBerry front, limited to Windows Mobile and Nokia E series and N series phones.
Today DiVitas announced a huge expansion of the mobile platforms it supports. It has developed a native client and a web-based client that extends its FMC technology to the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android operating systems.
Check out this PDF data sheet on the new Divitas offerings. You’ll see snapshots of what DiVitas’ FMC client looks like on each mobile platform.
