3/16/2005 - 4SmartPhone, a provider of mobility solutions that enable businesses and individuals to access anything, anywhere, anytime, announced that Synchronica Software, the European specialist in mobile synchronization and device management, has joined the 4SmartConnectT Global Partner Program as a Strategic Alliance partner (see announcement of 4SmartPhone's 4SmartConnect Global Partner Program, issued separately). This new partnership instantly extends 4SmartPhone reach to include users of smartphones supporting SyncML - an open synchronization standard already included in more than 150 phones and smartphones worldwide - and the ability to serve users of Symbian, Linux and proprietary smartphones, which are available today from leading manufacturers such as Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Siemens and others.
4SmartPhone will integrate Synchronica's SyncML Gateway into the 4SmartPhone datacenter infrastructure, enabling customers running any operating system (Windows Mobile, Palm OS, Symbian, Linux and proprietary) to enjoy the benefits of a fully hosted Microsoft Exchange 2003 mailbox along with over-the-air synchronization of email, contacts and calendar on their smartphone without needing additional software. Through the partnership agreement, 4SmartPhone becomes the first mobility service provider to support every major mobile operating system on the market worldwide.
"4SmartPhone's solution for the mobile marketplace makes it easy and cost-effective for smartphone owners to stay connected with their contacts, calendar and email without having to connect any wires to a desktop PC or laptop machine while they're on the road," said Carsten Brinkschulte, founder and CEO of Synchronica. "We are excited that 4SmartPhone has chosen the Synchronica SyncML Gateway to realize their ambitious mobile data service."
"While Windows Mobile and Palm OS have made some substantial progress in market share in the smartphone market, Symbian still has more than 50 percent of the smartphones sold worldwide, adding support for SyncML devices is a major expansion for 4SmartPhone," said Patrick Gilbert, CEO of 4SmartPhone. "The most significant difference between 4SmartPhone and our competitors is that by supporting both Microsoft ActiveSync and SyncML, we can support the widest variety of devices and users - and still with zero software to install on either the devices or on the user's PC."
Mobility in a Class of Its Own
