CompanionLink Software Offers Two Methods to Synchronize Palm Pixi to PC

Two-Way PC Backup of Palm Pixi Contacts and Calendar via Cloud or Cable

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - CompanionLink® Software, a leader in synchronization solutions, is shipping two methods to synchronize PC-based contacts and calendar data to the new Palm® Pixi™ phone. Using the MicroUSB cable that comes with the Pixi, CompanionLink for webOS USB™ offers direct two-way backup and sync of data between the phone and PC. For cloud users who rely on wireless synchronization, CompanionLink for Google™ synchronizes PC calendar and contacts to a Google account, which then synchronizes with Pixi using the phone's built-in Palm Synergy™ technology.

"We are excited to be shipping both wired and wireless sync options for Palm Pixi from day one," said Rushang Shah, Director of Marketing at CompanionLink Software. "Recent events have demonstrated the value of having critical customer and schedule data securely backed up on your PC. CompanionLink offers multiple ways to secure Palm webOS™ data to popular PC information managers like Microsoft® Outlook®, Palm Desktop, and IBM® Lotus Notes."

CompanionLink's wired sync solution features a Palm webOS app called CL USB Sync™ that can be downloaded to the phone without charge from the Palm App Catalog. This app works with CompanionLink for webOS USB to synchronize PC contacts and calendar to the phone's webOS contacts and calendar applications. The CL USB Sync app includes unique tasks and memos apps with categories and sort lists that work like the PC versions of the same applications.

CompanionLink's cloud-based solution synchronizes contacts and calendar from PC to Google, which automatically synchronizes with Palm Pixi using Synergy technology. Because cloud synchronization does not currently support tasks and memos on the device, tasks from the PC are placed into the calendar, and memos from the PC are placed in the contact list. CompanionLink's sync solution does not require WiFi and needs no other wireless setup beyond an Internet connection.

CompanionLink's two sync solutions for Palm Pixi, which also work with the Palm Pre™ phone, are available for a one-time license fee of $39.95. CompanionLink offers free email and telephone support, and lets users of one solution switch to the other solution at any time without charge. A 14-day evaluation is available at
