Want to access the System i server from your cool new Google Android smart phone? Looking forward to the jealous stares of other administrators as you expertly navigate the green-screen interface and configure services from the break room? Then you’ll probably need the new TN5250 for Android that Mochasoft released in mid February.
Mochasoft is a German developer that always seems to have the first terminal emulators for the hippest new techno-gadgets on everybody’s wish list, such as its 5250 emulator for the iPhone and its 5250 Emulator for the BlackBerry.
Now, Mochasoft is delivering a 5250 emulator for the next must-have blockbusting gadget: the Google Android smart phone, which is already challenging the iPhone and BlackBerry for supremacy aboard the techno-weenie bandwagon.
For $30, customers get a TN5250 emulator that supports all standard 5250 emulation features. The software emulates 24 F keys, and users can link 5250 functions to hard keys on the Android phone. The software supports auto log functions, device naming, and stores log in and configuration details for up to 20 different AS/400 sessions. Three different font sizes are provided, and users can even change the color of the text.
TN5250 for Android works with Android OS versions 1.5 through 2.0 and has been tested on four Android phones, including T-Mobile’s G1, HTC’s Hero and Tattoo, and the Motorola Milestone. For more information and downloads, visit www.mochasoft.dk.
