~ Symbian includes Intuwave's m-Router in Symbian OS v8 and v9 ~

Wednesday 16th March, 2005: Intuwave, the Smartphone platform specialist, today announced that Intuwave's m-Router Smartphone connectivity solution will be included in Symbian OS versions 8 and 9. m-Router connects Symbian OS-based Smartphones with PCs to allow easy provisioning of multimedia content and synchronisation of data such as address books, and calendars. Being part of Intuwave's m Network Smartphone integration engine, m-Router also gives Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) a simple means to ease integration of applications with Symbian OS.

Ease of use and thus user comfort with their devices is an important factor in driving the uptake of Smartphone content and services - important revenue streams for ISVs and telecoms operators. m Router allows users to make the most of their devices by connecting them to PCs to update and back-up information. Already included in Symbian OS v6 and v7, m-Router has been shipped in more than 17 million phones to date.

m-Router is an IP-based solution that connects and routes mobile devices through a PC, effectively turning the PC into a wireless broadband hotspot equivalent. A broad range of bearers - Bluetooth, USB, Serial and Infrared - makes connectivity to any IP-based service extremely versatile, increasing ease of use for consumers. As m-Router is shipped with Symbian OS, end-users can fully exploit the rich, multi-media potential of Smartphones without further downloads or configuration.

Rob Davis, m-Router product manager, Intuwave, "ISVs and telecoms operators are looking for ways to grow content and service revenue and this can only be achieved by making Smartphones easier to use. As sales of Symbian OS Smartphones have already outstripped those of PDAs, functionality like email, address books and calendar information is clearly becoming more important for users. m Router in Symbian OS provides a simple built-in connectivity solution for Symbian OS Smartphones.
