Zimbra, the fast-growing email and calendar service, has released a mobile version specifically for the iPhone.
Here’s information on the player, called the iZimbra. The link will work until about 10am today, when the company will make its announcement.
iZimbra will allow users to get their address books, e-mail, and calendars where ever they are, without the need for iSync or Outlook connectors — because it runs from the Zimbra server. The download works over the air, either by WIFI or EDGE. You point the iPhone to your Zimbra server via Safari.
If you select an address, the Google Maps application will display the address. If you click on a phone number, the iPhone will dial the contact’s number.
We last wrote about Zimbra, of San Mateo, Calif., here. Zimbra’s strength is its nimble AJAX interface, letting you switch seamlessly between your address book, calendar and email. It has so far delivering its application to businesses and to individuals through ISP providers, such as Comcast. However, it will be delivering a consumer version shortly, which will allow you to get the service directly from Zimbra.
