Bitstream announced during the CTIA 2004 the product release of ThunderHawk SmartPhone Edition for cell and smart phones. ThunderHawk SmartPhone Edition will enable wireless carriers and operators to supplement voice with up-to-date, real-time data services in a format that users are familiar with.
ThunderHawk SmartPhone Edition is now available to wireless carriers and operators, as well as corporations. It will also be made available to end users in April 2004 through Bitstream's Web site.
"Our SmartPhone Edition lets customers gain immediate access to the information they need in a format they instantly recognize," she continued. "SmartPhone Edition delivers the best user experience available today for browsing Web pages on cell and smart phones."
According to the company, ThunderHawk SmartPhone Edition preserves actual Web page layout, making it easy to find information on the page. In addition, ThunderHawk enables users to read a column of text without forcing them to scroll left and right as they read each line. Split screen mode lets users easily skim information and quickly find their orientation on a Web page. The upper half of the split screen shows the entire page, while the lower half displays the selected area at full size. Full screen mode displays a section of the page at full size.
With its support for open HTML standards, including CSS and DHTML, and security protocols, such as SSL and 128-bit encryption, ThunderHawk allows wireless carriers to provide complete Web browsing to their customers.
