I have been a long time Windows Mobile device owner and one of the programs I absolutely swear by and use daily is Soti’s Pocket Controller. Being able to use my device to text, email, or anything else you want right through your PC is awesome. Since recently purchasing an iPhone and Dell Android Streak, I have looked for a similar solution without much luck, especially for the iPhone. Granted you can jailbreak and go with Veency, which is a remote app that works via wifi with any vnc viewer via PC, Mac or Linux, but what about the folks that don’t want to jailbreak? If you fall into this category, then I’ve got some GREAT news for you! Soti has announced
two THREE new additions to their offering of MobiControl which currently supports Windows Mobile and BlackBerry. That’s right iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone has just been announced Soti as coming this Winter. “Winter” is pretty vague so I called them up and was told that they are working on the apps and look for them to be released in the “Winter” of 2011. Speaking to the Soti contact they also indicated not only will they release the MobiControl for the iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone, Soti will also be releasing a Pocket Controller App for each of the three new platforms as well. The Robust Enterprise solution MobiControl is quite expensive, so it was really good to hear that a consumer version of Pocket Controller will also be available during the same time period.
No pricing was given to me but generally you can anticipate MobiControl to be in the 70-100 dollar range and Pocket Controller to be 30-40 dollars. I know that seems high when apps are generally running $0.99 – $5.99, but trust me, this is excellent software. Stay tuned and we will keep you posted on more solid release dates.
