Intellisync and Danger Partner

Email this article Print this article




SAN JOSE, CA (08/17/04) – Intellisync Corporation (Nasdaq: SYNC), a leading provider of mobility and synchronization solutions, today announced that its award-winning synchronization technology is available through four additional wireless carriers – with more expected to join by year-end – as a result of Intellisync's partnership with Danger, Inc. Intellisync is being offered with Danger's increasingly popular hiptop device platform to enable synchronization of calendar events, contacts and tasks between hiptop-based devices and Microsoft Outlook personal information management (PIM) software. The one-click synchronization solution is completed "over the air," without the use of cables or cradles. Pricing is determined by carriers, and varies per carrier.

Currently, wireless carriers offering the hiptop-Intellisync solution include Triton PCS (operating under the SunCom brand in the Southeastern United States), Cable & Wireless in the Caribbean, E-Plus in Germany and ONE in Austria. Danger is expected to announce that additional carriers will begin offering Intellisync software for download on upcoming devices later this year.

"Our hiptop Wireless Solution is designed to provide wireless operators with the most robust and easy-to-implement mobile data technology on the market today," said Hank Nothhaft, chairman and CEO of Danger, Inc. "The proven, award-winning capabilities of the Intellisync synchronization platform are a critical component of the unique value proposition that we're able to offer wireless operators. We anticipate the relationships with Triton PCS, Cable & Wireless, E-plus and ONE are just the beginning of what will be a valuable partnership for Danger and Intellisync." In recent months, Intellisync has received several of the mobility industry's most prestigious technology awards and has been heralded by research analysts covering the mobility infrastructure market for synchronization and wireless email. As many network operators begin to implement email and PIM synchronization as a means of gaining competitive advantage, they are turning to the Intellisync platform.

"Wireless network operators around the globe are in need of more than stand-alone wireless email and basic synchronization services, and are demanding robust, fully-integrated solutions like Intellisync's. Our partnership with Danger is providing us with yet another entry point into this market," said Woodson (Woody) Hobbs, Intellisync's president and CEO. "Danger's impressive growth is due, in part, to the increasing popularity of its solution, which has been adopted by wireless operators around the world. We look forward to helping these and other operators of next-generation data networks create competitive advantage and build market share with Intellisync's mobile solutions."
