Motorola, BVRP Get in Sync in Japan

Synchronizing contacts between your cell phone and your PC is easy when
you’ve got the right tools. Thanks to cell phone vendor Motorola, BVRP
Software’s Mobile PhoneTools application is now being shipped to Vodafone
customers in Japan.

Using BVRP’s Mobile PhoneTools application that is bundled on Motorola phones,
cell phone users can transfer and synchronize data between their PCs and phones
with either a USB cable or Bluetooth technology.
The application enables multimedia file management
(ring tones, wallpaper and pictures) between cell phones and PCs with its Multimedia
Studio tool. BVRP also claims that Mobile PhoneTools will allow cell phones to
act as a modem for a connected PC.

Motorola customers in North America, Europe, Latin America and parts of Asia
have already had Mobile PhoneTools bundled with some of their phones. The Motorola
702MO and 702sMO devices shipped to Vodafone in Japan marks BVRP’s first entry into
that market.

“Mobile PhoneTools has become an important part of the Motorola global product
offering, giving end users the power they need to manage the growing amounts of
data stored on their Motorola devices,” said Tom Okada, general manager of Motorola
PCS Japan, in a statement. “Motorola bundles BVRP’s software with many phones
worldwide, so it was only natural to turn to BVRP to supply the same software for
our new phones being supplied to Vodafone.”

BVRP’s Mobile PhoneTools isn’t the only way to get your contacts synched between
cell phone and PC. Silicon Valley-based startup Plaxo
recently unveiled
a pair of new services that allows users to synchronize data from their PCs onto their cell phones
wirelessly.
