Handmark(R) Previews New Wireless Express Mobile Information Application.

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Handmark, the leading developer and publisher of software for smart mobile devices, previewed Handmark Express(TM), a new information system for wireless devices at the 2004 International CES show in Las Vegas. Handmark Express is a wireless information application designed to make the most wanted information faster and easier to access than with the micro-browsers found on wireless PDAs and smartphones.

According to Handmark vice president, Douglas Edwards, "Handmark Express was created for the mobile device user who is always on the go, but wants to stay in the know with what's happening. We capture that idea with the product slogan GO. KNOW.(TM)" Edwards added, "Express delivers news, weather, sports, and much more, and delivers it almost instantly on demand and automatically with user scheduled updates."

The $39.99 application (U.S., anticipated SRP) is easily worth the price of just one of the information channels: Handmark Express enables a wireless search of residential and business white page directories by name, address, or as a reverse directory. Once a user purchases and installs the Handmark Express application they can stop paying as much as $1.25 (or more) for 411-directory assistance. With Express look-ups the complete listing information including name, address, and phone number are displayed. Users can dial directly from Express and can add the complete listing data directly to the device's permanent built-in address book.

The first release of the new Handmark Express wireless application will be available in March of 2004 and will support both Palm OS(R) and Window Mobile(TM) based smartphones as well as PDAs with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth access to the Internet. The company plans to release other versions that support additional operating systems and devices by the fall of 2004.
