emoze Releases Version 1.4 - Breakthrough in Battery Power Consumption for Free Push Email
RAANANA, Israel, June 7 -- Significant breakthroughs in battery consumption, synchronization and set-up wizards make the latest version of emoze a smart choice for consumers seeking free push-email and calendar access on their personal cell phones.
The latest version of emoze (version 1.4), now available for download at www.emoze.com, is the result of extensive research and development as well as active collaboration with thousands of beta users who have commented on the breakthrough email and data synchronization service since its launch earlier this year. Emoze turns consumers' mobile devices into portable email terminals, providing the benefits of real-time email and calendar access to virtually everyone on the go. Emoze is the simplest, most efficient and most versatile free push-email service on the market.
New features and enhancements
Topping the list of improvements is enhanced battery consumption. emoze already had offered efficient battery usage by only pushing emails to mobile devices when a new email or calendar event arrived in their in-box. In the latest version, improved traffic flow pushes emoze to the top ranks in battery efficiency. In tested Symbian platform devices, battery life improvements were significant: Nokia N73 phones worked for 60 hours in "always-on," true push mode; Nokia E61 ran for 31 hours; iMate K-JAM phones worked for 120 hours (nearly six days); and PDA2K worked for more than 100 hours. Similar performances, now being benchmarked, are expected of other platforms and operating systems.
A great deal of effort was placed in improving emoze's synchronization performance. The result is that emoze now works much faster, even when it has to deal with extremely large Outlook/Lotus Notes databases. For example, a 4.5 G Exchange account starts synchronization process in less than one minute.
A Nokia N73 can synchronize 1,000 contacts in eight to 10 minutes (five minutes on an iMate K-JAM).
In addition, the new emoze release is optimized for the most efficient operation, using little memory and CPU resources.
In response to user requests, recurring meeting support has been added for all Symbian, PocketPC and Smartphones.
Emoze's Global Gateway mode (formerly Central Server) now completely eliminates the need for using a PC - or any type of server-end software installation - as a connector. Consumers with a Microsoft OWA or Gmail account can simply navigate from their mobile device to http://mobile.emoze.com where the appropriate client software can be downloaded. A wizard will help users to install and activate the software - in as little as one minute following the download.
"Users are suffering from daily battery power limitation due to extensive usage of their devices; therefore, we challenged our engineering team to take the best free push-email software and make it even better," said Benny Ballin, CEO, emoze. "The result turned out far better than we anticipated with a more efficient product that keeps mobile device performance at its highest level, a greater degree of usability and superior battery performance. We're confident consumers will embrace this latest version of emoze so that everyone can begin to enjoy the benefits of mobile email."
