Cisco has recently announced the expansion of its mobile collaboration portfolio offering for leading 3G smartphones. Users will be able to join Cisco WebEx Meeting Center web and audio conferences on smartphones including the BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Curve 8900, and BlackBerry Storm from RIM; Nokia E71, E75, N97 and other Nokia Eseries and Nseries; and the Samsung Blackjack II. Support for these smartphones is scheduled to be available in April 2009.
With Cisco WebExTM meetings on a smartphone, users are no longer out of touch even when they are on the road. Productive meetings with customers, colleagues and partners are now as easy as a phone call.
Users will be able to launch Cisco WebEx Meeting Center through the browser on their smartphones to receive integrated audio and web conferencing over 3G or a combination of 2G and Wi-Fi. In addition, users will be able to attend a scheduled meeting and to view presentations, applications and desktops with live annotations. This offering is planned to be available on several smartphone operating systems including BlackBerry, Symbian, and Windows Mobile.
There is no cost to attend these meetings, but to schedule and host a meeting from a computer requires a host account on Cisco WebEx Meeting Center.
In addition, by sending an SMS message, meeting hosts will now be able to invite a mobile attendee on any SMS-capable mobile phone to a meeting in progress and the attendee will simply reply “1″ to easily join the audio portion of a meeting with Cisco WebEx Meeting Center, Training Center, and Event Center.
