PenRight! launches first cross platform pen-based mobile computing application development tool; PenRight! for Windows allows developers to create Windows and DOS applications for PDAs, tablets, handhelds, notebooks, and desktop computers from single source code.
FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 24, 1995--PenRight! Corporation, a leading provider of pen-based mobile computing Using a computing device while in transit. Mobile computing implies wireless transmission, but wireless transmission does not necessarily imply mobile computing. Fixed wireless applications use satellites, radio systems and lasers to transmit between permanent objects such as buildings software, today announced PenRight! for Windows, the latest addition to its family of application development tools.
PenRight! for Windows is the industry's first pen-based development tool that allows developers to create MS Windows, DOS and DOS protected mode (1) The native state of an Intel CPU, which provides access to all advanced memory management functions. It was introduced in 1982 with the 16-bit 286 chip, which was the first x86 chip to break the 1MB barrier of the original 8086/8088 architecture. applications from single source code.
With the ability to create pen-based cross platform applications from single source code, developers can now utilize the widest range of mobile computing hardware including PDAs, tablets, handhelds, notebooks and even desktop computers. For end users determining the best environment in which to run their applications, PenRight! for Windows allows them to easily investigate key issues such as battery life, memory requirements, speed of execution and overall cost of the solution.
"PenRight!'s unique design eliminates the risk of having to choose between creating applications for Windows or DOS. Now with the click of a button users can have both," said PenRight! President David Marino. "Now developers can maximize their development resources and let their customers decide which platform makes the most sense for their mobile application needs," added Marino.
