There have been some interesting discussions recently over whether email (well email applications anyway) have any relevance still.
The enterprise camp says a resounding yes – seeing the email app as the centre of an aggregation of disparate uses – PIM, contacts, email etc.
The tech crowd say no – seeing email as old school, replaced by something,,, Gmail perhaps.
Now into the fray news that Mozilla is spinning off a unit that will solely develop a next generation email and communications initiative.
The mozilla bunch are pretty visionary and it’ll be interesting to see what they come up with….
