Polycom launching mobile app for iPhone 4S this month

It’s taken several months, but Polycom (Nasdaq: PLCM) is following its successful launch of an app for Apple’s (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPad with one for the iPhone 4S.

Polycom’s RealPresence app is now in the App Store.

The company said it plans to make its RealPresence app available for the iPhone 4S early this month and will soon follow that with one for smartphones using Google’s (Nasdaq: GOOG) Android 4.0 OS.

The app provides users with a secure, enterprise-grade video software solution for mobile devices–a feature users increasingly are saying is important. Polycom said its app allows mobile device users to easily connect with other standards-based video systems including immersive video rooms, group and desktop systems, laptops, tablets and smartphones in HD quality.

The app can connect over Wi-Fi, 3G or a 4G LTE connection, Polycom said.

The company launched an iPad and Android version of the app in October. It’s available via a free download from the Apple App Store and Android Market.

RealPresence Mobile can be registered to the RealPresence Platform, giving users features including provisioning, management, firewall traversal, content sharing and connectivity to desktop and immersive video room systems, including multi-party calls.

“Polycom’s vision is to make video collaboration ubiquitous by delivering easy-to-use, standards-based software to anyone on any device,” said Andy Miller, CEO of Polycom.
