Users of Pocket Informant personal information management (PIM) software for the Windows Mobile OS soon will be able to experience the benefits of the contact syncing capabilities of Mobile Sync for Plaxo, a new application from Web Information Solutions (WebIS) for the Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows Mobile 5.0 platforms.
Mobile Sync for Plaxo was developed with the Plaxo open Application Program Interface (API) to enable the seamless porting of address book information stored on personal computers to the Pocket PC.
As Plaxo becomes increasingly popular, people often find that their friends and colleagues are already members, creating a network of people whose contact information is always up-to-date through the address book updating that occurs between linked members.
Mobile Sync for Plaxo and Pocket Informant will enable customers to continue using the PIM applications they already run on their Pocket PC, while updating and maintaining the information in their address book. The integrated Plaxo technology will provide updating and synchronization capabilities, as well as the ability to back up all the information between a customer's work and home computers, mobile phone and personal digital assistant (PDA).
The platform enables access to this information from anywhere, on any personal computer or mobile device and can help to restore the data if a mobile device crashes or is stolen. Future versions of the solution available during the summer of 2006 will sync Notes, Tasks, and Calendar data.
By mid-February 2006, WebIS customers who want to add Mobile Sync for Plaxo contact syncing capabilities can download a desktop installer. The introductory price for this WebIS software enhancement is US$12.95.
