Getting a new device is an awesome and fun experience for people. That said, something that's not fun when switching from different platforms is the hassle of transferring your data from your old device to your new one. Contacts and numbers are easy if you're using a GSM device but what about your text messages, call logs or browser bookmarks? SPB has released a new tool, which looks to help ease that pain for you. The SPB Migration Tool is now available for Symbian S60 3rd edition and up as well as Windows Mobile 5 and later Professional edition users looking to migrate to a Android 2.1 and higher devices.
SPB Migration Tool offers two ways to transfer your data from your old device to your new one. The first being a simple MicroSD swap exchange where your contacts, text messages, call logs and more are all saved and then become transferable. In the case where a MicroSD cannot be used, online transfer is done safely and securely through an online portal. The SPB Migration Tool is available now for $9.95 in the Android Market. Press release is available after the break and more details can be found on the SPB website. [SPB]
January 12th, 2011 - SPB Software, a leading mobile software developer announces the release of SPB Migration Tool - a solution that helps you to migrate your personal data from old Windows Mobile or Symbian devices to a new Android smartphone.
To buy a new phone is always fun. But every change can cause the number of inconveniences at the beginning. Ask yourself a question: do you always save all of the important phone numbers to the contact list or maybe some of them are kept in the call history? When moving to the new phone these unsaved numbers can be lost without any opportunity to restore. Will you remember all of your favorite links without your old phone? Won't it be frustrating to lose the text messages with valuable information or cherished messages from the beloved ones?
SPB Migration Tool comes as a complete solution, which allows copying your personal information like call history, text messages, contacts, and bookmarks to a new Android smartphone. What makes SPB Migration Tool unique is an easy-to-use and convenient interface. The migration can be made in several simple steps and it doesn't require desktop to save the data on it.
Android platform is the fastest-growing mobile platform. According to IDC, 4 of top 10 Android-based smartphone vendors recorded year-on-year growth rate upwards of 100% and growing presence of Android-based smartphone suppliers. SPB Survey results show that the users tend to choose the smartphone with Android OS as their next device. The need for the handy tool that helps to migrate to Android platform grows rapidly with the amount of Android devices being sold every day.
SPB Migration Tool gives the opportunity to choose between two possible data transfer ways. One is more convenient for users who have a MicroSD card and another one is easier for those who prefer to use mobile internet on both devices. Migration can be done easily by means of inserting the MicroSD card into the old device and copying all the information there. In case when the MicroSD card is missing the online migration mode can be used instead.
The user can download the application from the mobile migration site:
The data is encrypted and deleted from the server completely after 12 hours. The detailed instructions on how to use the SPB Migration Tool can be found on the service web site:
"SPB Survey 2010 showed the tendency of migrating from all other platforms to Android and SPB is happy to support its customers with the right solution for it. It is much easier to get used to the new smartphone when all the favorite contacts, important text messages, recent call logs and bookmarks are kept on it. So we did our best to create the tool that facilitates the migration to the new device by making it really smooth and convenient. With SPB Migration Tool it won't take any effort to move to the new phone," says SPB Software CEO, Sebastian-Justus Schmidt.
