Avantgo and Sony Ericsson collaborate to provide P910 users with mobile content

News

AvantGo, the world's leading mobile Internet service, and Sony Ericsson today announced that they are working together to provide mobile content to users of the new Symbian OS-based Sony Ericsson P910 smartphone.

Sony Ericsson smartphone users can now quickly and easily synchronize hundreds of mobile websites containing news, weather, sports, and entertainment, including content from many of the world's top media brands, using either their desktop computer or a wireless internet connection.  The service is being demonstrated at the Symbian Expo
2004 - the Smartphone Show - in London on October 5-6, where iAnywhere Solutions exhibits as a partner in Sony Ericsson's stand
number 39.

"AvantGo has been one of the top requests among our smartphone customers and we are thrilled to work with AvantGo to bring this solution to market," said Ulf Wretling, director and head of Content Development for Sony Ericsson's GSM/UMTS products. "With AvantGo's unique 'sync and go' model, consumers can access news and contentanywhere, anytime - even offline. This is especially appealing to air
travelers who can now access content when Internet  connectivity is temporarily suspended when using the P910's  'flight mode' setting."

"We're excited to work with Sony Ericsson to provide AvantGo for the P910 series," said Neil Versen, senior director of AvantGo at iAnywhere Solutions. "AvantGo enhances Sony Ericsson's smartphone features with a proven content delivery solution that's available anytime.  In turn, all Sony Ericsson smartphone users will have access to AvantGo, creating an important opportunity to grow our subscriber base."
