I thought this was interesting but is limited to our European readers only at this time. Our Friends at Proporta who have been bringing us their fine cases for a wide range of devices, have announced they will be the exclusive distributor for Sygic’s Mobile Maps Software. Mobile Maps is limited to the whole of Europe
Proporta will initially be bringing two Sygic products to market: Mobile Maps 10 Europe (RRP £69.99) and Mobile Maps 10 UK & Ireland (RRP £39.99). It will be developing UK retail sales in close association with Brightpoint GB, with whom Proporta has established a strong partnership in the mobile phone sector.
I emailed Proporta about any future plans to release Mobile Maps by Sygic here in the US and I will let everyone know when I get a heads up.
Press release after the break.
Sygic and Proporta today announce the start of a strategic partnership which sees the appointment of Brighton-based Proporta as Sygic’s exclusive distributor for its award-winning Mobile Maps range of navigation software for mobile phones.
Sygic, based in Bratislava, Slovakia, develops and sells turn-by-turn voice guided GPS navigation for a wide range of mobile phones, available in multiple languages. Its latest Mobile Maps 10 supports Android, Symbian, Windows CE and Palm OS, with the latest digital maps covering the whole of Europe.
Guy Monson, Proporta’s Managing Ditrector commented “Proporta has been looking to diversify its product portfolio beyond our traditional strength of cases and other physical accessories. Distributing world-class GPS software is a major step for us to achieve this, and Sygic have impressed us with their determination to establish themselves in this burgeoning market.”
Michal Stencl, Sygic Founder and CEO said “The UK is a key market for us is our growth plans and we are delighted to partner with Proporta, whose reputation in providing quality products within the mobile phone sector is second to none.”
