The complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, seeks a permanent injunction that would prohibit Smartner from continuing to marketing its services in the United States. Visto will also seek monetary damages as compensation for Smartner's illegal actions. Both companies offer secure push e-mail for mobile devices like Windows Mobile Pocket PC, Windows Mobile Smartphone and Symbian smartphones."</i><br /><br />We've talked about Smartner and their push technology in the past. Those of you that are using it seem to really like what it has to offer. It would be a shame to see its life cut short. Hopefully some middle ground can be found.
