An office environment where a CEO manages four companies. One of the
companies is a prime and its secretary should be able to coordinate
with the secretaries of the other companies and be in direct contact
with the CEO.
The other secretaries can request appointments via Outlook/Exchange
and get acceptance/declines as well as suggestions for alternatives.
The CEO uses a Nokia 9210i Communicator, though can switch to
something more suitable to realize this coordination goal if a
solution exists out there, where he would connect via the GSM data
network to synchronize via the Internet for example which can get the
mobile talking to the exchange server and probably an add-on to allow
for the calendar to get synchronized and the rest of the e-mails and
contacts of course.
With the above situation, I'd like some recommendations for methods,
software and handheld units to accomplish the above.
Request for Question Clarification byalienintelligence-ga
Is there a true need for it to be GSM?
Is your intent, to use the GSM network
thru a cellphone attached to a PDA and
maintain synchronization on the PDAs
with a wide area network setup?

In the region we're in, GPRS is in a testing phase. So, normal GSM
connectivity to the Internet and from the Internet it would reach the
exchange server or another mediary to allow the exchange information
between the two worlds.
You seem to be hinting at a dialup server of sorts instead of going
through the Internet. That's another option.
The ideal hardware unit would be the Nokia 9210i Communicator, though
that can be leg go of if they have to in order to reach a solution.
The devices is always going to be one which has a GSM capabilitiy to
allow for a more efficient carrying weight and avoid looking like an
electronics booth at an exhibit somewhere.
Let me know if you need any more information. 🙂
Thank you for trying.
