Original Press Release:
Handmark Express(TM) Makes Smartphones Smarter
Atlanta, GA (March 22, 2004) -The release today of Handmark Express(tm) wireless information service means that users of the popular Treo(tm) and Windows Mobile(tm) smartphones have a new trick to show off their device. Handmark Express, released today at the CTIA 2004 tradeshow in Atlanta, works with Palm OS and Windows Mobile smartphones or PDAs with WiFi and an Internet connection. Handmark, the leading developer and publisher of software for smart mobile devices, has created Express as a wireless information application to accelerate delivery of the information most in demand by a mobile generation. Express is much faster and easier than searching with the micro-browsers found on wireless PDAs and smartphones.
According to Handmark vice president Douglas Edwards, "even if there were no constraints on bandwidth, viewing web pages through a tiny two inch screen is a less than satisfactory experience. Express is an application that talks directly to Handmark servers for an optimum user experience, it's faster, easier and does much more than try to squeeze a service designed for desktops onto a handheld screen. Express was created specifically for the mobile device. It's much more than just better than browsing, Express makes smartphones smarter."
Because Express is a direct Internet client application, and not a web browser based service, it delivers the most wanted information and services faster than web portals. Express Delivers(tm) Who What When Where and How to Get There(tm) by providing automatic and on demand updates to news, market data, weather, sports scores, maps and directions, directory lookups, movie times and ticket purchases.
