Windows Mobile device specialist i-mate has moved into the software market, enabling users to access music, photographs, videos and files wherever they are, on whatever PC or i-mate device they own. The 1-View solution, developed by the Dubai-based company, allows people to wirelessly access files on all their PCs from any i-mate handset, upload files and data from the device to a PC and download documents, music, photos and videos from any PC to an i-mate device. “i-mate has experienced tremendous global growth in a very short time, our entry into the global software market is in-line with our business development strategy,” says Jim Morrison, CEO at i-mate. “The 1-View solution will make high-speed data a reality and allow our customer base to get the most efficiency out of their devices and allow users full access to the digital content they already own.” The software also provides small and large businesses and enterprise users with solutions to give employees anytime, anywhere access to data stored on multiple terminals. Asked why i-mate had decided to go into the software market, Morrison says: “Because nobody else was doing what we wanted to do. Everyone was talking about the next big application, but I thought why not give people what they already own. The music they have at home, photographs, and files on their computer. With 1-View they can pull down through any device and control it that way.” The company is launching the software at Gitex because, “it remains an important stage for us,” says Morrison. “My first Gitex was four years ago. There were two of us on the Microsoft stand, and now we have a huge stand of our own with 35 people on it.” i-mate's success in recent years means that the company is now exporting its technology around the world and Morrison claims it is one of the first companies born during the recent regional boom to do so.
