SimpleMail consumer push e-mail solution introduced by Synchronica.
Synchronica plc (AIM: SYNC), a provider of mobile e-mail and synchronisation solutions, announced on Tuesday (28 October) Synchronica SimpleMail, a new consumer push e-mail (CPE) solution that brings mobile e-mail to almost all currently used handsets.
According to the company, the new solution, based on technology from the recent acquisition of former competitor AxisMobile, extends the addressable market for push e-mail to even the most basic handsets, making it particularly suitable for mobile operators in emerging markets.
Synchronica SimpleMail includes 'E-mail to SMS' and 'E-mail to MMS' gateways and a clientless solution for WAP/xHTML browser access. In addition, it features an Optimizer transcoding gateway, which reduces the size of pictures and allows a variety of attachments, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, to be displayed on feature phones that would otherwise be unable to support this functionality. Users can register for the service from their mobile handset, rather than having to register via a PC.
The solution supports Google Mail, Yahoo, MSN Hotmail+ and any POP3 or IMAP4 mailboxes and offers real-time device auto-detection and multi-lingual support, including English, Cyrillic, Chinese, Arabic and Kanji. It also offers support for multiple e-mail accounts on one device.
The company said it has signed license agreements for the new technology with two mobile operators in India and Africa and has received an expansion order from a mobile operator in Russia/CIS for additional licenses. No financial details of any of the deals were disclosed.
