"The P800 is such as powerful and diversified business tool, yet delightfully simple to use. In today's busy work environment, with people constantly on the go and in need of instant information, the P800 is well suited to access both personal and business information including the Internet, corporate Intranets and emails with attachments. We see our collaboration with Captaris as a strong value addition to corporate users," stated Gabriel Sjogren, Product Marketing Manager for Sony Ericsson in the Middle East and Africa.

"Our goal is to help business users reap the benefits of mobile access to the information that is usually tied to their office desktop," added Fadi Honein, Regional Manager for Captaris, Inc. "We are confident that once companies experience the benefits in productivity and customer responsiveness that the P800 with Infinite Mobile Delivery gives them, they will want to expand their initial license and add other integrated features from our CallXpress unified messaging and RightFax enterprise fax and e-document delivery solutions."
