LAS VEGAS -- fusionOne, a leader in mobility and synchronization software, today announced the debut of its MightyPhone(TM) wireless synchronization service. Initially available for the SonyEricsson T68i, MightyPhone enables mobile phone users to update their phone with critical address book and calendar information from their PC- or web-based applications -- without the need for cumbersome wires or cables. The announcement is being made at the COMDEX tradeshow, taking place this week in Las Vegas, Nevada. Unlike other synchronization offerings that may require direct contact between the phone and PC, fusionOne utilizes the wireless carrier network to automatically broadcast contact and calendar information to a user's phone, regardless of physical location. This unique capability extends the value and power of existing mobile phones to that of a handheld PDA. "Of all the wireless devices on the market today, mobile phones are the only one with universal worldwide acceptance," said Rick Onyon, co-founder and CEO of fusionOne. "However, existing handsets lack the productivity-enhancing capabilities and applications of a handheld PDA. MightyPhone brings mobile phone users PDA power without PDA bulk, by ensuring that their most up-to-date calendar and contact information is always available -- no matter where they are."
