Sybase 365 Launches AvantGo for Symbian Smart Phones

Sybase 365, a subsidiary of Sybase, has announced the launch of the AvantGo client for smartphones based on Symbian OS and S60. Symbian smartphone users can now access updated, customized content from thousands of mobile Websites anytime and anywhere in either an online or offline mode in a format that is optimized for the device.

Symbian develops and licenses Symbian OS, licensed by the world's leading mobile phone manufacturers. To date, more than 165 million Symbian smartphones have shipped worldwide to over 250 mobile network operators.
