Intermedia to Offer Full Hosted Exchange Support for New iPhone 4
Bringing Business Email to the Smartphone on Heels of Announcing iPad Support
Intermedia, the world’s largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, today announced that its hosted Exchange service, including Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010, will be available on the new Apple iPhone 4 the day it is available to customers. Using Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, Intermedia will configure the new Apple iPhone to wirelessly send and receive Exchange email, calendar invitations, contacts and more. Intermedia supports business email and collaboration on a full range of smartphones, including devices from BlackBerry, Google’s Nexus One, Motorola Droid, Palm Treo, Motorola Q, T-Mobile Dash and the Samsung Blackjack.
Interest in Apple devices has surged amongst Intermedia’s nearly 250,000 premium business email users. Over one-third of the company’s smartphone customers are using iPhones and close to 5,000 iPads are already supported by Intermedia’s hosted Exchange. “We’re seeing a growing number of our customers who have the iPhone as their mobile device add on an iPad for a seamless mobile experience,” says Jonathan McCormick, COO, Intermedia.
As more business people rely on smartphones, including iPhones, to access Exchange, demand for Intermedia’s mobility services has increased. Companies no longer have to standardize on a single smartphone to minimize operational expenses and complexity. Each user can select the smartphone right for them.
“Small and mid-size business owners want to stay connected from their smartphones. Empowering your smartphone with Exchange hosting keeps you in sync with office email, calendaring and contact capabilities from virtually anywhere,” says McCormick. “Continuing support for iPhone 4 rounds out Intermedia’s capabilities for the major smartphones on the market. We want our customers to have full availability to use the smartphone of their choice.”
