Missing Sync adds Symbian
Mark/Space has announced The Missing Sync for Symbian, offering Mac-sync support for Symbian OS mobile devices from Nokia, Motorola and Sony Ericsson. Mark/Space already offers the Missing Sync for BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows Mobile and others, and now adds Symbian OS support, with a brand new feature, called Proximity Sync. Billed as "syncing without thinking," Proximity Sync (arriving first on The Missing Sync for Symbian) offers fully automated syncing of a user's Bluetooth Symbain device that comes within Bluetooth-range of the user's Mac (about 30 feet). The Proximity Sync activates sync-over-Bluetooth without any user prompt.
The Missing Sync for Symbian will be available later today via download for $40, requiring a Mac with native Bluetooth support and Mac OS X 10.4.9 or higher. It works with Nokia phones running Symbian S60 3rd revision, as well as Motorola and Sony Ericsson phones running Symbian UIQ 3.0 or later.
The Missing Sync can create and sync to-do items, new contacts and events. It can also synchronize photos, video, documents and music, for phones that support the filetypes. The Missing Sync also archives text messages and call logs, and offers SMS search for information retrieval.
