Many consider 2011 to be the year of mobile. The “always on” mentality has become more common then ever before, further blurring the line between work and personal time. The need to remain in constant contact is easy to get wrapped up in, and new technology makes it easier and fun to do. Mobile phones are fast becoming the preferred way to access the web and engage with people and content.
The following Info Graphic looks at smartphones and how they are shaping a new mobile workforce.

We are excited to announce the availability of VMware Zimbra for Android (VZA) as a fling. A fling is a short-term thing, not a serious relationship but a fun one. Likewise, the tools that are offered as a fling from VMware Labs are intended to be played with and explored. None of them are guaranteed to become part of any future product offering and there is no support for them. They are, however, totally free for you to download and play around with!
Today’s fling – the VMware Zimbra for Android – is a native Android collaboration application that allows you to access your email, calendar, contacts, tasks and files from any Android device, specifically smartphones and tablets. VZA supports any Microsoft ActiveSync compliant email server and also supports the VMware Zimbra Collaboration Server (ZCS). With ZCS as the backend, VZA offers several additional Zimbra-only features such as Briefcase, Saved Searches, etc. that are not available in any of the Android email applications in the market today.
