Now that Notes/Domino 8.5.2 is out, a few questions have trickled in about the status of the Notes Traveler client for Android.

To refresh, we announced at Lotusphere that we would build our own Notes Traveler client for the Android 2.x OS -- supporting mail, calendar, contacts.  We knew that the Android OS would evolve to have some of these capabilities in the base OS, but enterprise calendaring and other features just aren't there; plus, different devices using Android use different sets of capabilities, so we can't always assume that the OS will provide what we need.  For example, we will have the best experience with the 2.2 operating system -- versions prior to that have no ability for us to implement a remote wipe security feature or password enforcement.

We entered beta about 75 days ago, and progress is good.  The plan is to ship somewhere in mid-Q4, as part of an 8.5.2 fixpack.  The Traveler server will need to be 8.5.2 in order to support the Android client as well.

If you are interested in participating in the beta, and have access to a Traveler 8.5.2 server (does not require all Domino servers to be upgraded, just the Traveler server), follow this link to self-nominate.
