Good Technology announces wireless e-mail service on Blackberry

The company is backed by Kleiner Perkins and Benchmark Capital, whosepartners John Doerr and Bruce Dunlevie are on the board. Good had raised $6 million in its first round raised in May 2000 and $53.5 million in several tranches between November 2000 and July 2001, none of which were disclosed at the time.

Good Technology's wireless e-mail service functions on Blackberry devices as well as Good Technology's own G-100 devices, which the company plans to release later this summer.

What's cool about this? Its server software sits in your NOC and talks to your exchange server. It gives you up-to-date email/calendar/to-dos in real-time. So if your assistant schedules you for a last minute meeting while you're on the road, the device alerts you on the fly.
