Santa Clara, Royal Tunbridge Wells, 10 August, 2008. - Synchronica plc announced today that Mobile Gateway has won the 2008 Reader Trust Award for Best in Mobile Solution from Network Products Guide, a Silicon Valley Communications publication and a world leading publication on technologies and solutions. This respected annual award honors products and services that represent the rapidly changing needs and interests of the end-users of technology worldwide. As part of the tech industry's leading global awards program, this year's Best Products and Services were nominated from all over the world.

"We are honored that Synchronica Mobile Gateway has been recognized for the Best in Mobile Solution Award, and this distinction reinforces our winning open industry-standards approach to delivering mobile email to the mass market", said Synchronica CMO Nicole Meissner. "With Mobile Gateway, individuals can easily access personal and corporate email, calendar, and contact data on the go without having to purchase an expensive device. This is another important step in our mission to bring push email and PIM synchronization services to every phone on the planet."

Synchronica Mobile Gateway provides carrier-grade push email and synchronization services for virtually all mass market feature phones and smartphones on the market today. Based on the dominant open industry standards Push IMAP for mobile email and SyncML (OMA DS) for contact, calendar, notes, and task synchronization, it works with the built-in email and synchronization clients found in more than 1.5 billion phones worldwide. Mobile Gateway was also the first solution to deliver Microsoft Exchange connectivity to the iPhone and continues to deliver push email and synchronization services to devices from all major handset manufacturers.

A key advantage unmatched by other products is that Mobile Gateway does not require any additional software installation on the users' PC, on the mobile phone, or firewall modification in the corporate network. Instead, Mobile Gateway is operated in the data center of the service provider and connects to the user's mail server through a secure connection.

"Increased end-user awareness and ongoing advances in mobile technology are helping shape better products and services", says Rake Narang, Chief Editor, Network Products Guide. "As workforces become increasingly mobile, consumers are demanding access to email, calendar, and contact information no matter their location or type of phone. Synchronica Mobile Gateway solves this problem by delivering a superior mobile email solution to the global mass market that is both cost-effective and offers a high-quality user experience."
