It took a third-party developer to bring push HTML email support to the world’s most popular smartphone OS. We’re not sure how to feel about that but the bottom line is Dataviz has done what no one else could do to this point with the latest version of its widely-acclaimed Roadsync solution. Roadsync is not the first S60 application to support HTML email – ProfiMail by Lonely Cat Games has supported HTML email for a very long time – however this is certainly the first application to add HTML support to Exchange which is still one of the most popular mobile email / PIM sync facilitators in the world. Also, the native S60 email client kinda sorta attempts to provide a workaround by including the original HTML files it parses as attachments, allowing the user to open them in the S60 web browser. Regardless of whether or not you think that solution is laughable, the native email client doesn’t support Exchange. Nope, that just leaves RoadSync; one of the most popular Exchange solutions available for S60. It provides a direct connection to your Exchange server and supports active email sync, contact sync (with photo support), calendar sync, task sync, access to global address lists and even remote wiping. At $50 for a single user license, Roadsync is certainly not cheap. It does however, come with a more-than-ample 30-day free trial and a 30-day money back guarantee on top of that. In other words, you have 60 days to decide if Roadsync is right for you. Fair enough.
