BlackBerry Cool Best of WES People\'s Choic Winners

We’ve tallied all the votes, and we’re now ready to announce the winners of BlackBerry Cool’s First Annual Best of WES: People’s Choice Contest. Reader participation is a huge deal here at BBCool HQ, so we were touched to see so many people voting for their favorite BlackBerry products and services. One of the most startling aspects of the contest was seeing just how close the voting was in many of the categories — you guys really like a lot of different things! To that end, we’re going to post the top three favorites in every category.

Thanks to everyone who voted!

Sneak peek at WICKSoft version 3.6

Comments

WICKSoftDoug and I met up with local Ottawa developer WICKSoft the other day to check out their mobile document access system, and were both duly impressed. If you don’t have the time to check out their flash demos, these guys offer a quick, secure, and easy-to-use document access program for a wide variety of server types. They also showed us the work they’re doing with some big-name partners, so you can expect some fine products plugging in to WICKSoft soon. Version 3.6 will be officially announced at WES (along with those new partnerships we can’t mention yet), featuring some pretty slick additions. We heard about their integration with Novell not too long ago, and it was cool to finally see it in action. It was impressive to see how quick and painless server-side installation went, as well as their full range of security features. Which isn’t to say that WICKSoft suffers on the user side of the equation: essentially, if you work at a company where mobile access to documents is a priority, WICKSoft is for you.

You can expect more coverage of WICKSoft from the ‘Cool at WES (which attendees can see for themselves at booth #731), with a review to follow shortly after. Until then, scope the new deets after the jump.

Check out a list of new features and some quick impressions for WICKSoft 3.6.

Mobile Admin updated

Comments

Mobile AdminRove’s Mobile Admin has been bumped up to version 4.0, featuring a per user licensing system, which allows individual workers to access any number of servers from their BlackBerry. Aside from that, there’s also a new web interface that gives IT personnel access from remote computers, as well as Vista support. BES admins and anyone handling any kind of server would do well to check it out.
