Synchronica Wins 4 Mobile Star Awards

Tunbridge Wells, November 2, 2006. -- Synchronica plc (AIM:SYNC), a pioneering vendor of mobile data management and synchronization solutions based on open standards, has announced that it has won three Gold and one Silver Mobile Star Awards from MobileVillage.

The fifth annual Mobile Star Awards aim to honour and promote the best companies, products, deployments, and leaders in mobile and wireless technology.

Winners are chosen by subscribers to Go Mobile, MobileVillage's free online newsletter sent to technology executives, mobile professionals, IT managers and developers. MobileVillage is the 14-year leader in market development and news services about mobile technology.

Synchronica SyncML Gateway has been ranked as a Gold Star product in both the mobile email category and the enterprise middleware category. In the mobile device management category, Synchronica's Mobile Manager was voted as a silver star product. Synchronica CEO, Carsten Brinkschulte, a pioneer of SyncML client server software and an active member of the open mobile association (OMA), has also been voted to receive the Gold Mobile Star award for his role as a visionary in the enterprise mobile software space.

Synchronica SyncML Gateway middleware delivers push email and synchronization of calendar and contact information to any SyncML compliant mobile phone. This provides a BlackBerry like experience to business users, without restricting them to a single type of device. SyncML Gateway also delivers mobile email to consumers through an OEM agreement with IXI Mobile, manufacturer of the mass-market mobile email device Ogo.

Silver award winner Synchronica Mobile Manager provides businesses with a complete self care facility for the management of their smartphones, with the ability to remotely lock and wipe data from any phone that has been decommissioned, lost or stolen. If a smartphone is stolen, end users can even opt to activate Mobile Manager's Scream feature over the air, to cause an embarrassing high pitched wail to be emitted from the device.

'The Mobile Star Awards program has grown along with the mobile industry', says MobileVillage Editor Gary Thayer. 'This year we saw hundreds of entries in about 60 categories and almost 1,000 Go Mobile readers took the time to cast votes.'

'We are delighted to receive this award', said Brinkschulte. 'It is particularly gratifying to know that our products have been chosen by readers of Go Mobile, who are active users of mobile technology and knowledgeable about the range products available to them for their mobile email and device management requirements.'

A list of winners in each of this year's award categories is posted here:
