Sonim to Bundle Avanquest’s Leading Mobile Connectivity and Synchronization Software with its Xtreme Performance Ruggedised Mobile Phones

Sonim Technologies, designer and manufacturer of the world’s “toughest” GSM mobile phone, today announced a software licensing agreement with Avanquest Software, the world’s leading provider of PC synchronization solutions for mobile handheld devices.

According to terms of the agreement, Sonim will bundle Avanquest’s Mobile PhoneTools PC application with its mobile phone products, created for groups that work and play hard in challenging outdoor environments, beginning with the Xtreme Performance line of rugged devices.

Mobile PhoneTools will allow cellular subscribers with Xtreme Performance handsets – available as GSM-only mobile phones or push-to-talk devices that leverage Sonim’s VoIP communications suite – to synchronize contacts, calendar and other information between their handsets and personal computers in addition to personalizing their phones with multimedia content.

Mobile PhoneTools also enables users to access the Internet using the mobile phone as a modem, providing high speed wireless connection anywhere, anytime. Access to email and Web-based office or personal applications is easy without a PC data card or searching for a Wi-Fi hotspot. Additionally, users are able to send and receive SMS communications from their PC using the Avanquest application.

“Adding Avanquest’s Mobile PhoneTools product to our portfolio gives our business users best in class PC synchronization capabilities for uploading mission-critical data to their mobile phones to take with them offline, and on-the-go,” explains Javor Kolev, Vice President of Mobile Products at Sonim. “Our professional users in armed security, transportation and logistics, construction, and field services will soon easily be able to access and synchronize partner and supplier corporate contacts along with other field services logistics data needed to complete jobs and missions quickly.”

“We are extremely happy that the leader in both ruggedized handsets and “outdoor” push-to-talk VoIP communications has selected Mobile PhoneTools,” said Julie Shevlin, Vice President, Avanquest Software’s Denver-based OEM Division. “This agreement will provide a competitive advantage to Sonim by extending the performance of their state-of-the-art devices with a comprehensive, powerful and easy to use mobility solution for their customers.”

Mobile PhoneTools is the world’s leading PC mobile connectivity, multimedia and synchronization solution, with tens of millions of copies sold. Compatible with Microsoft Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and Vista, Mobile PhoneTools offers syncing capabilities with popular desktop programs such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, and MS Exchange, as well as Lotus Notes. Avanquest provides support for the product in more than 26 languages, including Chinese, Korean and Russian.

The Sonim XP1 is an IP-54 certified, mil-spec approved, bluetooth and Push-To-Talk enabled GSM phone, engineered to meet the needs of people who work outside the office and outdoor sports enthusiasts, the Sonim XP1 works perfectly in harsh environments. Certified to withstand shock, water, wind, dust, dirt and extreme temperatures, the Sonim XP1 is the only certified phone designed specifically for the lives of people who work and play in demanding conditions.
