Visto teams up with Telus


VistoIt’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything new concerning RIM’s most recent patent lawsuit with mobile software provider Visto, but that hasn’t stopped the company from making news on its own. The Globe and Mail is reporting that Visto is to provide secure email software, as well as calendar and contact support, for the Motorola Q on Canadian carrier Telus’ network.

It may also surprise you to learn that Visto’s software is used by another Canadian carrier (and staunch RIM supporter): Rogers. Rogers is Canada’s largest mobile phone company, and sells only RIM’s and Visto’s (sold under the Rogers MyMail brand) wireless email systems. However, Raj Doshi, vice president of device and product management at Rogers Wireless says that the feud between the two companies will not affect their business with Rogers.

“That’s between the two of them. We continue to sell the products,” he says. “We’re happy with the relationship we have with Visto.”
