VMware has just published a new part of the VMware Horizon portfolio – VMware Horizon Mail. VMware Horizon Mail is a new native Android collaboration application that allows you to access corporate email, calendar, contacts and tasks. This application was previously available as a VMware fling. Now you can find it on Google Play. The app will be the default email/PIM client for VMware Horizon Mobile.

These are the highlights:

  • Comprehensive capabilities for Email, Contacts, Calendar, Tasks

  • Clean, elegant but powerful user interface
  • Create widgets to access email, contacts and calendar from home screen
  • Conversation mode

  • Local and server-based search
  • Integrate with native PIM to view personal and “work” Contacts and Calendar together
  • Support for ActiveSync policies such as PIN, etc.
