NewsGator Go! for J2ME Mobile Devices

A few months ago NewsGator released a Windows Mobile feed reader called NewsGator Go! I’ve been using it on my T-Mobile Dash and it’s fantastic.  Today, NewsGator Go! for J2ME just went Beta.  If you have a Blackberry, Palm Treo or Tungsten, Sony Ericsson (P800, P900, P910), Nokia, Motorola (V400, V551, V600, RAZR), Samsung, LG, or other Java phone, you can now run the NewsGator on it.  It automagically syncs with your NewsGator Online account (and any other NewsGator products you are using.)  Kevin Cawley – one of the big brains behind much of the NewsGator mobile stuff – has a nice post up about it.

My current configuration is FeedDemon on my PCs, NetNewsWire on my Macs, and NewsGator Go! Mobile on my Dash.  The Bones in Motion guys just sent me a KRZR ao I’ll give NewsGator Go! for J2ME a try on that this weekend.  It’s all tied together on the back end with NewsGator Online, although we are working on testing NewsGator Enterprise On-Demand (also in beta.) 

So – we’ve now got a wide range of mobile platforms covered – Windows, Java, and HTML – with sync to our online platform and enterprise products – with spiffy high-performance readers on each client.
