Hi All, This is Jan Kenney, product manager for Lotus Notes Traveler, and today I'm attending the IBM Mobility event at the grand opening of IBM's new office building in Littleton, Massachusetts, its largest software development lab in North America!
IBM executives, dignitaries from Massachusetts, industry analysts and the employees are gathered here to celebrate IBM's commitment to innovation and delivery on technology in the Mobile space. There are demonstrations throughout the day of the innovative mobile offerings that span the brand and product portfolio. It's an exciting place to be!
And the excitement continues..In my other role as Beta Program manager for Lotus Notes and Domino and Lotus Notes Traveler, I am fortunate to work with customers from around the world, large and small, to get a first-hand assessment from them on how the market shift toward mobility is positively impacting the way they work and influencing the product deployment decisions they make. I find that platform choice for mobile solutions is important to our customers and as an example, the Lotus Notes Traveler application provides 2-way, wireless synchronization of Domino email and PIM data on the popular Apple devices, Nokia Symbian and Windows Mobile devices, today! Moving ahead and in direct response to overwhelming interest in the Android platform from customers, partners and colleagues, and with a keen eye on market trends, the Lotus team is delivering the first beta version of Notes Traveler for Android 2.X today.
The ability to keep current with your personal and business information, anytime/anywhere and from a variety of platforms has never been more fun or important! Traveler on Android is a significant step forward in meeting customer needs, and it's clear that Lotus *definitely* Knows!

Hi, this is John Beck coming to you from San Francisco, CA where I am an attendee at Apple's WorldWide Developer Conference.
As I sit in the conference and take in the informative sessions and interact with the other conference attendees and engineers from Apple, I realize that we are in very fun times. The computing industry is shifting and devices like the iPad are helping transform our work styles. Increasingly, I am seeing people use traditional desktop and laptop machines at the end points of their day and turning to smart phones and highly mobile devices for their messaging and collaboration needs as they go about the daily tasks of connecting with people, both in their own company and with folks outside their company.
The fact that we have brought the Traveler capabilities to the iPad after only 8 weeks of the device being available is a boon to Notes/Domino customers and underscores the new work modes many of us already engaged in. I look forward to seeing how this shift affects us all in the coming months and years. Certainly Traveler on the iPad is a fantastic first step down this path.

Today marks the launch of the Lotus Knows blog. Since we launched our Lotus Knows campaign last fall I've been hearing from all sorts of folks - customers, colleagues, fellow travelers in the airport - who want to hear more about exactly what it is that Lotus really knows and how it can help their business.
This blog is designed to help answer that question.
Watch this space to get insight and perspective into business trends , news and commentary from IBM, discussions on current hot topics across the technology landscape, particularly around trends in collaboration, cloud computing, social software, and unified communications.
You'll hear from me from time to time, but this blog is really a venue for the broad range of collaboration experts who make the Lotus engine run, both within and beyond IBM.
