I know we mentioned ActiveBerry before as the upcoming ActiveSync application service for BlackBerry. I have been monitoring it closely and noticed that they have rebranded their product name to AstraSync. Not sure why. I kind of liked ActiveBerry.
They claim that the product will be available this month (July 2008) so we should be able to see it soon. It should still retail for $49 for 12 months. I will be keeping a close eye on this and will let you know when its released.
AstraSync™ is a new software plug-in for BlackBerry® Smartphones that performs two-way over-the-air synchronization of email, calendar and contact data with a Microsoft Exchange 2007 or MailSite Fusion server.
AstraSync does this by implementing the Exchange ActiveSync and DirectPush protocols. AstraSync can be downloaded over-the-air and runs silently in the background on the BlackBerry® Smartphone. Users can configure the name of the ActiveSync server, their username and password and can select which data they wish to synchronize.
