GoodLink from Cingular is now available on the Audiovox SMT 5600 and the Motorola MPx220 Smartphones. Both devices now support the latest version of GoodLink software, GoodLink 4.5 for Windows Mobile Smartphone, to give business customers continuous two-way wireless synchronization of their corporate Microsoft Outlook applications, including e-mail, calendar, contacts, notes and tasks, while on-the-go using a lightweight handset.

The Audiovox SMT5600 is a “candybar” style Smartphone recognized as one of the world’s smallest Windows Mobile-based Smartphones, weighing just 3.6 ounces. The Motorola MPx220 is a quad-band flip-phone designed for busy professionals wanting style without compromising high-tech phone features.

“The availability of GoodLink from Cingular on Windows Mobile Smartphones gives our business customers who prefer the look and feel of a wireless handset a cost-effective way to access their corporate e-mail without having to purchase a PDA,” said Michael Woodward, executive director, mobile professional solutions, for Cingular Wireless. “This underscores Cingular’s commitment to provide our customers with the applications they need using the devices and operating platforms they prefer on the largest digital wireless data network in the U.S.”

GoodLink from Cingular provides a two-way, wirelessly synchronized connection to Microsoft(R) Outlook functions and other features when customers are within Cingular coverage areas on multiple device platforms including Palm, Windows Mobile Pocket PC and now Windows Mobile Smartphone. GoodLink provides enterprise-class, FIPS-certified security including end-to-end AES data encryption, remote data wipe and remote password policy management. It also includes Secure Over-The-Air™ device provisioning and management featuring Zero-IT-Touch™ activations and upgrades of GoodLink and third-party applications for simplified IT administration.

Both the Audiovox SMT5600 and the Motorola MPx220 are compact yet rich with features, including Microsoft® Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition for Smartphone, T9 predictive text, MSN Messenger, built-in Bluetooth, infrared port, mini SD card slot, speakerphone, voice recorder, Camera and camcorder, and Windows Media Player.

“There is a growing class of business users that requires highly secure wireless access to email and PIM, but isn’t willing to sacrifice portability and phone power,” said Rick Osterloh, vice president, products, Good Technology. “Cingular and Good together are uniquely able to serve this user base with a cost-effective choice of Windows Mobile Smartphones powered by GoodLink on the largest digital wireless data network in the country.”

Cingular offers GoodLink as an end-to-end service for a monthly fee of $44.99 per month for unlimited data with a qualified voice plan. Customers must purchase a one-time $1,500 Starter Pak per GoodLink server license, and a one-time $99 per user GoodLink Client Access license. Cingular is offering both devices for as low as $199.99 with a two-year voice and data service contract.
