Avvenu has unveiled a new free remote access service that supports the Palm Treo 700w smartphone, allowing wireless connectivity both to the Internet and to the user’s home or office computers.
The service uses high-speed wireless access accessing Verizon’s EV-DO network, allowing fast downloads and access to files, photos, and other videos. Access is password-only, and data transfers are encrypted and transmitted using 128-bit SSL.
The Treo 700w is the first smartphone supporting the service which runs on the Mobile Windows OS, meaning that a consumer who combines the phone with Avvenu can truly take the office along.
“Avvenu transforms a Palm device into a portal that can access any of the user’s files, anywhere in the world they have a wireless connection,” said Page Murray, vice president of marketing at Palm, Inc.
Avvenu also supports the Treo 650 smartphone, the LifeDrive mobile manager, and the new Palm TX.
The remote access technology is available for free download at the Palm website.
