MOBILECOMM AND DASnet SERVICES OPEN MESSAGING TO PAGERS AND PDAs THROUGHOUT THE E-MAIL WORLD

 CAMPBELL, Calif., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- DA Systems, Inc., and MobileComm, the paging subsidiary of BellSouth (NYSE: BLS), together announced a new partnership which, with one stroke, creates a channel for messaging through most of the world's commercial e-mail systems.
 Those systems include the Internet, X.400, COMSAT's Inmarsat Standard-C and Telex, all of which can now be accessed via DA Systems' DASnet Service with message delivery through the MobileComm nationwide paging network.
 Messages can be sent via the DASnet Service by practically any person or company which sends outside electronic mail. The delivery of messages is handled through two recently developed MobileComm services: MobileComm CompuLink and MobileComm MessageLink.
 The advent of CompuLink has transformed MobileComm's far-reaching paging system into a nationwide network for the receipt of messages, whether on a customer's portable computer or other type of personal communications device, such as a personal digital assistant (PDA). With MobileComm MessageLink, subscribers can capture more detailed messages on their pagers than was previously possible.
 The DASnet Service is seamlessly integrated with both MobileComm MessageLink and MobileComm CompuLink. It is unique in the data-page industry in that no special subscriptions, sign-ups, software or hardware are required by the sending party. Also, the DASnet Service adds no extraneous information to the message, which is especially important when added length increases the message's sending cost.
 With the addition of a NewsStream(R) or NewsCard(TM) Advanced Information Receiver, or the Newton(R) Messaging Card for Apple Computer's Newton MessagePad(TM), messages can be saved and downloaded to a portable computer, PDA, personal communicator or other device at the user's convenience. The different messaging receivers are available in customized Enabling Kits from MobileComm, each of which is tailored to a customer's particular PC or PDA.
 "The increased mobility of people in today's business world requires innovative solutions for keeping in touch," said Dr. Alain Briancon, executive director of product and services development at MobileComm. "Because DASnet Service provides the means to receive an electronic mail message from almost anywhere in the world, our customers can have the assurance that they are practically always within reach."
 According to DA Systems President Russell Briggs: "MobileComm has opened the door to a new dimension in service for DA Systems. Our focus thus far has been to deliver messages, regardless of the destination. With the addition of mobile technologies supported by MobileComm, this partnership extends our ability to move the message to where the user is, even when they're on the go."
 MobileComm, a BellSouth subsidiary based in Jackson, Miss., has been providing wireless communication service in markets coast to coast for almost 30 years. With more than 100 local offices nationwide, the company and its affiliates have over 1.3 million pagers in service across the United States.
 DA Systems, Inc., a privately held corporation located in Campbell, provides DASnet Service for communications among corporate electronic mail systems, commercial services, networks and messaging applications around the world.
