Verizon Wireless adds remote access to personal data over the air
Verizon Wireless and Xpherix Corporation announced the launch of Remo on Verizon Wireless’ Get It Now service. Remo is a communications tool that provides remote access to e-mail, contacts, and calendars through an everyday data-enabled wireless phone. Data from your computer (desktop or laptop) is sinchronised to a web account, and accessed from a mobile phone. Information updated on the mobile phone is then synchronised back to the web account and ultimately to the computer.

Using Remo’s e-mail function, which provides access to up to seven user-defined POP or POP3 e-mail accounts, subscribers can view, reply, and send e-mail right from their mobile phone. Remo’s Calendar function enables subscribers to view, add, edit or delete calendar events stored in their home or office computer, even when the computer is not on. Any changes made on the phone are automatically synchronised back to their Microsoft Outlook calendar. The Contacts function gives access to numbers, addresses, e-mail addresses and even the notes field from applications including Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express or Palm Desktop software.

With the touch of a button, subscribers may also download numbers and e-mail addresses directly into the phone’s built-in phonebook. This ‘Push-to-Phone’ function eliminates the need to type in contact numbers using the phone’s keypad. In addition, Remo provides camera phone users an easy way to send pictures to friends and family without having to type out e-mail addresses.

Remo is the latest addition to Xpherix’ award-winning product set. Only two months after its launch, Xpherix’ first BREW product, iPhonebookTM, was recognized as the “Best Productivity Application” at Qualcomm’s BREW Developer Conference. iPhonebook was quickly followed by iDatebook. All three applications are available through Verizon Wireless’ Get It Now service.

Remo is initially available from Verizon Wireless on the LG VX6000 camera phone. Subscribers can try a one-day free demonstration of Remo or download the application for US$7.99 monthly access, in addition to airtime used.
