Intermedia, the world’s largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, today announced that its hosted Exchange services (including Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2007) are available on Apple’s newly launched iPad. Using Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, Intermedia will support the iPad in the same manner that it currently supports iPhones and other smartphones such as the Google Nexus One, Motorola Droid, Palm Treo, Motorola Q, T-Mobile Dash and the Samsung Blackjack. Users can now take advantage of the same enterprise-grade Exchange services on the iPad that they expect in the office. Intermedia was the first to support business email on the iPhone in 2007.
According to Apple, adding an account to the iPad is intuitive and quick. The user simply inputs some basic information and the iPad does the rest.
Intermedia also fully supports BlackBerry® Wireless Solution hosting for hosted Exchange. The company provides users with BlackBerry® Enterprise Solutions (BES) connectivity – for true wireless “push” email. Customers get two-way wireless synchronization of email, calendar, contacts and tasks. Intermedia also offers free downloads of Entourage 2008 for Mac users.
