New just been posted in MSmobiles about an open source Project called Funambol

Now MSmobiles has always been keen to be setting the record straight with regard to MS's claims about the Push email (MSFP, AKU2, etc.) just being around the corner, pointing out about the onging court action by Visto, so it will be interesting to see what sort of reply Jason has regarding this and when we might actually start to see some releases by the Carriers?

        

What is quite exciting is that although this is listed as an Open Source Project for PocketPC's, if it works fine for WM5 then the only real reason why it won't work with SmartPhone WM5 should *simply* be down to a screen resolution issue? Surely?

So it looks like there might actually be another very viable alternative that also looks like it has made some significant inroads in to supporting Exchange, Notes, Blackberry without the need for a NOC and a monthly charge per user? Certainly the list of modules makes intriguing reading, although I'm wondering about where and/or how they managed to get the ActiveSync license? ;-))

Tried to activate it on my T-mobile MDA Vario. No success. It seems that I need to wait a little bit more for another vaporware :(
