Together they enable Scalix users to communicate via all popular mobile devices without the need for client side installs.

With the implementation of native BlackBerry support, Scalix now provides today's enterprise users 'on the go' the ultimate in mobile client freedom of choice,” said Andreas Typaldos, CEO of Xandros. “Scalix mobile users can choose whatever tool they need, from the BlackBerry to the iPhone, to any device with mobile web access.”
