Lahore, Pakistan (PRWEB) October 12, 2009
Pepper.pk, a leading smartphone and mobile device application developer announced today, the release of BerrySnooper, its theft prevention and device tracking solution for Blackberry smartphones. BerrySnooper will solve one of the most critical problems users and corporate IT departments are faced with: the loss or theft of their data-laden Blackberry.
According to a recent J.D. Power and Associates survey, despite carrier subsidies, the average sales price of a smartphone is over $200. Not only are the devices themselves expensive, they often contain information which far exceeds the price paid for the hardware. With their rapidly increasing storage capacities, mobile devices and smartphones now carry gigabytes of corporate documents, confidential email, personal information and private family photographs. The cost of losing a mobile device is immense, and in most situations, incalculable.
"Smartphone use is exploding globally and corporations are providing a growing number of employees with Blackberry and other smartphone devices. An effective device tracking and recovery solution that can prevent corporate data and trade secrets from ending up in the wrong hands is a critical need that cannot be ignored.", said Mr. Hasan A. Rizvi, Chairman, Pepper.pk. "BerrySnooper is a simple, cost-effective answer to this problem."
BerrySnooper is a small and efficient application that runs in the background on a Blackberry device. It unobtrusively listens for tracking requests which may be sent via text message or email. Tracking requests can be initiated from any other phone, or from the BerrySnooper web portal. Once the device receives a tracking request, it immediately responds with its GPS coordinates, conveniently highlighted on a map. BerrySnooper continues to work even when the SIM card in the device is swapped out. When a SIM change is detected, BerrySnooper automatically activates itself and sends its current location to the BerrySnooper web portal. It continues to provide location updates in accordance with a configurable frequency.
BerrySnooper is immediately available for download via Pepper.pk partners, such as Handango. The software is available for perpetual use on a single device for only $9.99. There are no monthly or other recurring fees associated with its use. For more information on BerrySnooper and to download your copy, visit http://www.pepper.pk/berrysnooper
