Following Microsoft's launch of Windows Mobile 5, connectivity software firm Laplink has launched a new version of its remote PC access solution, Laplink Everywhere 4, to support Microsoft’s new OS. While similar solutions are available from vendors such as GoToMyPC and PCAnywhere, Laplink claims its Everywhere release differs from these solutions by providing a web-based interface for mobile users, which fully integrates with Google Desktop Search, thereby allowing users to even search for e-mail and files on the remote PC. The user can then respond to e-mail, update PIM data, and download or forward files straight from the browser. Laplink Everywhere 4 also provides access to a user’s remote PC files, e-mail, internet favourites, contacts, notes, tasks and calendar from any web-enabled device. “Connectivity to remote resources is becoming more and more of a necessity for an increasingly mobile workforce, and handheld devices such as those using Windows Mobile 5 will play an increasingly important role in the future of connectivity,” said Thomas Koll, CEO of Laplink. A 15-day free trial of Laplink Everywhere 4 is available from www.laplink.com, while the software can be bought for $8.95 per month or $44.95 per year. Laplink Everywhere 4 supports a variety of platforms including PDAs and smartphones running Windows Mobile, Pocket PC, and Windows CE. Laplink has worked closely with Microsoft for many years and earlier this month announced that Microsoft had in fact invested in the company. Mr. Gates and Co. is licensing some of Laplink's mobile-worker technology, including the new Everywhere application.
