Avvenu Bringing Remote File Access to the Palm Foleo

by Reads (6,299)

Avvenu has just announced a version of its Access ‘n Share service for the Palm Foleo. This will allow users to remotely access digital content stored on their work or home PCs with the upcoming mobile companion.

Already available for Palm’s smartphones, this new version of Access ‘n Share was developed to take advantage of Foleo’s large screen size and wireless capabilities.

Users will be able to securely browse a remote PC’s files and folders, preview photos, download and upload documents, and share files with others.

Access ‘n Share also provides an optional personal digital locker that allows users to securely store and synchronize files from their PCs to an Avvenu server, providing remote access even when their PCs are turned off or not connected to the Internet.

"Palm Foleo is a great way to display and edit documents and information available on a Palm Treo smartphone," said Richard French, chief executive officer for Avvenu. "Avvenu Access ‘n Share completes the proposition by allowing Foleo users to remotely access and share files stored on their work or home personal computers, whenever they are connected to the Internet."

Avvenu has not yet announced when this application will be available, or what its price will be. The Palm Foleo itself will launch later this summer.

More About the Palm Foleo

The Foleo will be the first in a new category of devices Palm is calling mobile companions. As their name suggests, they will primarily be intended to give users access to the same data that is on their smartphone, but with a larger screen and keyboard.

The first mobile companion will have a clamshell design with a 10-inch display and a full size QWERTY keyboard.

It will run a version of Linux, and be open to third-party software development.
