New Software First to Turbocharge Wireless Web For Pocket PC Devices

SHARE, a leading mobile Internet software provider, has announced the release of the first optimization software compatible for Pocket PC devices. The new release enables wireless access speeds equivalent to dial-up connections, allowing a truly usable consumer and corporate mobile Internet device.

“We’ve seen growing demand for Internet access with mobile computing devices, and the increasing popularity of the Pocket PC is a testament to that demand,” said David R. Cox, president and chief executive officer of BlueKite. “Real mobile access with these devices, however, has been tempered by painfully slow wireless networks and very complex connection solutions. BlueKite has been working diligently to make the wireless Web a reality for Pocket PC users.”

BlueKite’s technology delivers a rich, familiar Web browsing experience to Pocket PCs and laptops through caching and compression algorithms that reduce unnecessary data transmissions over wireless networks. Pocket PC compatibility is a new feature of BlueKite’s software platform, now in Version 4.0, and includes any device running Windows CE such as Compaq’s iPaq, Hewlett-Packard’s Jornada, Casio’s Cassiopeia, Mitsubishi’s Trium Mondo, and Cyberbank’s CyberBird.

Expanding Pocket PC Usability and Functionality

By significantly enhancing the wireless connection speeds, BlueKite enables the same rich applications on Pocket PCs, previously limited to desktop access. Both business users and consumers can turn their handhelds into powerful mobile Internet devices, rather than simple organizers.

Wirelessly accessing the Internet, intranet or Web-based applications such as Outlook e-mail, Sales Force Automation, Customer Relationship Management or other applications previously limited to only desktop usage, enables users to be highly more efficient.
