Paragon Software today launched the first bi-directonal synchronisation product allowing users to exchange data held in their desktop with their mobile phones.
The product, named FoneSync Essentials, enables users to automatically update any changes or additions made on their mobile to their desktop or Internet Personal Managers (PIMs) and vice versa.
The UK company also launched FoneSync PRO, which will manage distributed data between mobile phones, PIMs and Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs).
At the start of this month, software maker Phone.com announced it had acquired Paragon Software in a deal worth about $500m in stock. The deal, which is expected to close in the first quarter of 2000, is part of Phone.com's aim to create a platform for the delivery of internet services and personal information to mobile phones.
Phone.com is one of the providers of wireless application protocol (Wap), the software that enables web connections through wireless devices. This month it acquired communications application service provider Onebox.com for $850m, and @Motion, a voice recognition company, for $285m.
Cindy Dahm, director of marketing at Phone.com Europe, said the company has more than 30,000 registered developers for its software and recent acquisitions had developed a platform of internet services.
Using its software, subscribers can have access to call management, billing history information and pricing plan subscription from their network operators' services, as well as services such as email, stocks, weather and travel.
Earlier this month Phone.com announced it would launch a testing centre for version 1.2 of Wap. The centre will allow software developers and wireless carriers to test the new features of Wap 1.2, including the Push Access Protocol against Wap gateways.
