Santa Monica, Calif. (PRWEB) May 17, 2006 -
Blue Nomad, LLC today announced the immediate availability of BackupBuddy.Net™ Basic for Palm® Treo™ smartphones, including the just-announced Treo 700p. BackupBuddy.Net Basic allows users of Palm OS®-based Treos to wirelessly backup their critical Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Memo data over the Internet.
Features of BackupBuddy.Net Basic have been built around the need for speed and robust security. It offers high compression and end-to-end (AES) encryption of all user-data, which is also stored in an encrypted form on the server.
With its support for Trickle Backup™, BackupBuddy.Net is able to work even when a user’s Treo is in “asleep.” Trickle Backup allows BackupBuddy.Net to transparently and continuously backup a user's files when the Treo is inactive. Trickle Backup does not interfere with the day-to-day use of the Treo and has an insignificant impact on battery life.
"BackupBuddy.Net represents the culmination of our many years experience writing Palm OS backup software and is the most user-friendly and robust backup solution that we have ever developed,” said Alexis S. Hinds, CEO of Blue Nomad. “Treo users can now really not worry about theft of a device and its memory card, a damaged device or an errant program. By using BackupBuddy.Net and its Trickle feature they can effortlessly restore their critical data in moments, whether on their original or a replacement device."
"This is wonderful news for owners of Treo smartphones," said Larry Berkin, Senior Director, Developer Marketing for PalmSource, Inc, an ACCESS Company. “The Palm OS platform continues to provide leading mobile developers like Blue Nomad a fantastic opportunity to bring both personal and professional applications to millions of application-hungry Treo users.”
Pricing and Availability
BackupBuddy.Net Basic is available now from Blue Nomad's BackupBuddy.Net website (http://www.backupbuddy.net) for $34.95 for a one-year subscription or $19.95 for a six month subscription. Introductory pricing of $29.95 for one year and $16.95 for six month subscriptions is available until June 1. Review copies are also available and can be obtaining by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A release of BackupBuddy.Net Professional, which backs up the entire OS-based Treo line including all third-party applications and data, is expected to follow later this summer and will be a free upgrade to users who purchase the Basic edition before its release.
