TreoPro & Army Go...

Mon Dec 21, 2009 - 3:07 PM EST - By Annie Latham

A Government Computer News (GCN) story titled "Hands on with Army Go Mobile gear" by Trudy Walsh talks about the devices that let soldiers tap the AKO portal so they can view, modify, present and print their work from virtually anywhere they can get a wireless signal. In addition to a choice of smart phones, Go Mobile includes five devices, contained in a solar-powered backpack from Voltaic Systems.

The Treo Pro is one of the devices highlighted. One of the first smart phones to be approved, the Palm Treo Pro runs the Windows mobile platform.

"Each piece of the kit has to meet stringent Defense Department information assurance requirements," said Maj. Keith Parker, assistant project manager for Go Mobile AKO/DKO.

Army personnel can get to the AKO portal from anywhere in the world. Maj. Parker demonstrated AKO on his smart phone by launching the Opera browser and going to the AKO portal from www.us.army.mil, then entering his user name and password. AKO uses two-factor authentication. In addition to user name and password, users must answer a series of questions.
