New web server for Windows Mobile now available


Free-bit of Japan has just announced the release of "ServersMan @ Windows Mobile 1.0b".

While there are other web servers for Windows Mobile, Free-bit uniquely uses its Emotion Link technology to bypass the NAT layer of the telephone carriers by creating a VPN tunnel directly to your smartphone, meaning your device is always reachable on the same IPv6 IP no matter what network (3G or WIFI) you are on.

By signing up for Serversman you also get a unique URL which can be passed on to others, allowing easy sharing of the content of your smartphone.

Besides this groundbreaking functionality Serversman also supports gadgets to get access to the features of your smartphone, like accessing the GPS functionality of your device to allow your web page to publish your real-time location, or to upload pictures.

Serversman for the iPhone has also been developed, but while the Windows Mobile version supports all the features of the iPhone, it can also run in the background, unlike the iPhone app.

Free-bit also notes the potential market for its software is much larger on Windows Mobile, which has shipped 50 million so far and 20 million only last year, vs the iPhone’s who’s lifetime sales so far are only 17 million.

At present the software is only available in Japanese, but should be released in English soon. The service and software is free, and, if you understand Japanese, the cab file can be downloaded here. Only Windows Mobile Professional/Classic is supported.
