this year, Glenayre announced that
they would be making a two-way pager Springboard module for the Handspring
Visor. The @ctiveLink™ will allow wireless messaging, as well as
access to email and other information applications.
Through a license from JP
Systems, the @ctiveLink will contain the One-Touch Messaging™
email application and InfoBeam™, an information application that
allows one to do everything from getting news, sports, and weather to stock
information and movie reviews. See the Related Links for a current
listing of the services that InfoBeam has to offer.
There will also be "Enhanced
Address and Enhanced Datebook applications that add wireless
features when paired with RemoteLook, a PC desktop client that allows
secure, wireless access to your Microsoft Outlook information."
In summary, the @ctiveLink includes
the following features:
The expected release date for the @ctiveLink
module is August-September and will be available in the U.S., Canada, and
Mexico. Through a
deal with OfficeLink, @ctiveLink owners can have access to voice mail
and fax services as well. I must say, this is one of the modules that is on my
hot list. Being able to check email, get the latest Astros score,
and get the latest news on the Visor will sure keep me busy!
