Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 29, 2005
Avanquest Software, a leading developer and publisher of business and consumer software for the global PC market with operations in Europe, the U.S. and Asia, today introduced Pocket PhoneTools 5 PRO, the latest version of its PDA communications software tool compatible with all PDAs using Pocket PC 2002, 2003 and 2003SE. The new version provides access to high-speed 3G cellular networks and compatibility with even more cell phone brands and models than ever before Â including Motorola, Nokia, Samsung and Sony-Ericsson.
Pocket PhoneTools 5 PRO automatically configures an Internet connection using the cell phone as a modem. Now individuals can quickly connect and also maintain an Internet connection using high-speed wireless networks via an integrated database of 320 major operators in 87 countries. The software is an ideal tool for users who need Internet access in places where Wi-Fi access is unavailable, for business travelers conducting eCommerce, and for people who want to download email quickly and navigate the web faster.
ÂOffering Pocket PC users a simple and reliable application to gain mobile Internet access virtually anywhere is key for todayÂs busy professional,Â said Bob Lang, President of the Mobility and Communications Division of the Avanquest Software Group. ÂBeing without Internet access for even a single day can disrupt daily workflow and result in loss of business. Pocket PhoneTools 5 PRO is the insurance policy for the Internet that people are seeking to conduct business at a momentÂs notice.Â
A more powerful user interface also makes it easier to send and receive all types of messages, get voicemail with a single click, and quickly dial phone numbers using the Pocket PhoneTools 5 Dialer. Users can easily back-up mobile phone contacts on the Pocket PC via BluetoothÂ®, Infrared or USB cable modems.
The improved functionality of Pocket PhoneTools 5 PRO is now integrated directly into Pocket Outlook and into the ÂTodayÂ screen of the Pocket PC -- providing even greater efficiency and productivity for users.
Other vital functions integrated into Pocket PhoneTools 5 PRO include:
* SMS Communications: enables users to send SMS messages to multiple recipients and view incoming SMS messages directly from the Pocket PC interface, send high priority SMS messages, archive and compress SMS messages, and compose pre-recorded SMS messages for later transmissions;
* Pocket PC Fax Software: individuals can send and receive faxes directly from the Pocket PC, annotate fax messages and reach multiple recipients, send attachments using Pocket Word, and personalize fax messages using three cover page templates;
* Synchronize PDA and cell phone data: users can transfer cell phone contacts from a SIM card and phone directory to the Pocket PC, transfer Pocket PC contacts to a mobile phone, and create different contact directories for different cell phones and back them up on a PDA.
Pocket PhoneTools 5 PRO has all the important features that made the previous versions best sellers, as well as recipients of numerous Pocket PC awards. Pocket PhoneTools 4 PRO was nominated by Pocket PC Magazine for its Best Software Awards 2005 and again as a Finalist in both 2004 and 2003.
Pocket PhoneTools 5 PRO downloads to the PC and is then launched to the PDA. The software requires Windows 95/98, NT, ME, 2000 or XP operating systems; MS ActiveSync installation and 6.1 MB of memory on the PC and 2.1 MB of memory on the PDA.
