New Version Brings Next Level of Exchange ActiveSync Connectivity to All Samsung, LG and Nokia Phones Based on S60 and Symbian OS
Milford, CT, October 29, 2008 – DataViz®, Inc., a leading provider of mobile office compatibility solutions, today announced the immediate availability of the latest version of its Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync® client, RoadSync® 4.0. This version is the first Exchange ActiveSync solution to richly display HTML1 formatted e-mails on all S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 and Feature Pack 2 mobile devices based on Symbian OS™, the market-leading open operating system for mobile phones. In addition to HTML e-mail, new features include tasks and contact photo synchronization, pop-up notifications for new e-mails and keypad shortcuts for the most common messaging functions.
RoadSync 4.0 not only adds significant new functionality, it increases usability by improving its existing support for mailbox subfolders, font zooming, installation set-up and internet access point handling. DataViz is the first independent software vendor to license the Exchange ActiveSync protocol directly from Microsoft; RoadSync uses this technology to provide secure, wireless and direct push synchronization of e-mail, calendar, contacts, tasks and attachments with Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 and 2007 on non Microsoft devices.
“With multiple device manufacturers licensing the Symbian OS and the popularity of Symbian smartphones, the S60 platform provides a great market opportunity for us to bring corporate e-mail to a wide variety of mobile devices,” said Ilya Eliashevsky, RoadSync Product Manager, DataViz, Inc. “More companies are adopting Exchange ActiveSync as their preferred messaging solution and we are excited to combine our Microsoft Office experience with the tools provided by the Symbian developer community to bring to market our most complete RoadSync offering to date.”
“We are pleased to have DataViz—a member of the Symbian Partner Network—provide a feature-rich ActiveSync e-mail client to mobile professionals,” said Mike Whittingham, Vice President of Ecosystem Development, Symbian. “The RoadSync Exchange e-mail solution broadens the choice for users of Exchange by supporting most phones based on S60 and Symbian OS.”
