Munich, Germany — At the PalmSource Euro DevCon 2004, fun communications today announced the new text messages manager for Palm Powered handhelds and smartphones: funSMS 5 PDA. The program offers an incomparable broad range of functions and fascinates at first look with its golden-metallic interface design.

“With SMS gaining greater adoption among mobile users today, we believe funSMS 5 PDA for Palm OS? offers a complete solution that enables managing text messages with great ease,” said Larry Berkin, director of developer marketing at PalmSource, Inc. “As a dedicated Palm OS developer, we look forward to continued innovation from fun communications to extend the functionality of Palm Powered smart mobile devices.”

“funSMS 5 PDA makes sending and managing SMS messages more simple and convenient than ever before,” said Klaus Nahr, President fun communications GmbH.

funSMS 5 PDA supports the 5-way navigation button for comfortable navigation within the application – all without lifting a stylus. funSMS 5 PDA offers an extremely attractive layout and optimized graphics for high and low resolution.

Naturally, funSMS 5 PDA offers all functionalities for which its predecessor funSMS 3 has been awarded regularly. funSMS 5 PDA supports multi-part messages, which means that an SMS message is no longer restricted to its usual length of 160 characters. An SMS can be sent to one or more recipients. SMS messages can be sorted using freely definable categories and can also be exported to the Memo Pad and To Do List. An SMS can be written and then saved as a template together with the recipient list. This is particularly practical when the same messages are frequently sent. Integration with the Address Book allows senders to be identified automatically and recipients selected easily.
