Synchronica Products Win Mobile Gold Star Awards for Mobile Operator Products

Royal Tunbridge Wells, October 22, 2007. - Synchronica plc, a leading vendor of mobile synchronization and mobile device management software, today announced that it has won a Gold Mobile Star Award for both of its products from MobileVillage, the 14-year leader in mobile market development and mobile technology news services.

The annual Mobile Star Awards aim to honor and promote the best companies, mobile and wireless products and deployments, and technology leaders. Winners are chosen by technology executives, mobile professionals, IT managers, developers, and top technology journalists.

Synchronica has been recognized in six categories:

Both of Synchronica's products, Mobile Gateway and Mobile Manager, were awarded Gold Stars for over-the-air (OTA) synchronization and device management in the Mobile Operator Software category.

Synchronica Mobile Manager was awarded a Silver Star for mobile backup and recovery in the Enterprise Software category.

Two Bright Stars were awarded to Synchronica Mobile Gateway for Enterprise Mobile Communications and for Enterprise Mobile Middleware, highlighting the fact that Mobile Gateway provides push email, calendar, contact, tasks, and notes synchronization without requiring any software to be installed behind the corporate firewall or on the mobile device.

The award for Enterprise Mobile Communications recognizes the fact that Synchronica Mobile Gateway supports the widest range of mobile devices in use today, untethering enterprises from expensive proprietary devices.

On the device management side, Synchronica Mobile Manager was also awarded a Bright Star for Enterprise Mobile Device Management, in recognition of its ability to ease the central management, security, and OTA updating of smartphones in the corporate environment, allowing IT managers to ensure that corporate data held on employees' phones is protected.

In recognition of his championing of open mobile industry standards (SyncML, IMAP Idle, and OMA EMN), which bring industry-leading synchronization and mobile device management services to the widest range of feature phones and smartphones on the market, Synchronica CEO Carsten Brinkschulte was voted as a visionary in the Enterprise Mobile Software category, gaining him a Bright Star award.

'With more enterprise and consumer users of wireless technology than ever before, there is a natural desire for people to evaluate the abundance of mobile solutions that are available to them', said MobileVillage Editor Gary Thayer. 'This year, almost 2000 MobileVillage readers cast their votes for the best mobile and wireless solutions on the market. Our readers have a great knowledge and experience of using mobile products, and we congratulate the winners on gaining the votes of real end-users.'

Carsten Brinkschulte, Synchronica CEO, said: 'We believe that by supporting open mobile standards, we can open up mobile email and PIM synchronization to the majority of mobile phone owners and deliver enormous benefit to both enterprise and consumer markets, yielding additional mobile data revenues for operators and service providers.'

'On the device management side, we believe that OTA backup and restore services may be the first mobile data application beyond SMS which will be successful in the mass market. We also predict enormous growth in consumer mobile email as open standards enable such services on a wider range of devices. We are delighted that both of Synchronica's products have been awarded a Gold Star by MobileVillage, as this endorses our strategy of supporting standards that bring these high-end services to low-cost phones.'
