Handmark joins Microsoft Mobility Partner Advisory Council (MPAC)
Posted on 2-Mar-2004 07:42. | Tags Filed under: News.

Handmark, Inc., announced its participation in the Microsoft Mobility Partner Advisory Council (MPAC). Microsoft formed MPAC in an effort to work more collaboratively with companies who are investing heavily in mobility.

Handmark offers Windows Mobile users some of the best known brands, including the Trivial Pursuit(R) board game and the Oxford American Desk Dictionary and Thesaurus.

Handamark also announced that Handmark Express will be launched later this month at CTIA in Atlanta, GA. Express is a new wireless information application that serves the information faster and easier than with micro-browsers found on any wireless PDAs and smartphones. Handmark Express delivers maps, directions, news, weather, sports, stocks, and more, automatically and on demand. An entire month of Handmark Express service uses only as much bandwidth as is required to view a handful of web pages.

According to Handmark vice president, Douglas Edwards, "There's this myth that Microsoft is a big impenetrable organization. One of the advantages of being an MPAC partner is easy access to some of the smartest and most dedicated people in the mobile industry. With their help, Handmark is rapidly expanding to provide great new products and services, including our new Handmark Express service, to a fast growing market of ever-smarter Windows Mobile devices."
