Posted on 17-May-2005 08:11. | Tags Filed under: News.



Motricity and China Unicom Newspace have joined forces to enhance the delivery of mobile content for the newly released Samsung i539 Palm OS smartphone throughout China - a market estimated to include over 334 million wireless subscribers, according to a report by Frost & Sullivan.

China Unicom Newspace is the second largest CDMA carrier and third largest GSM carrier in the world. Motricity's consumer services include PalmGear and PocketGear.

With Motricity's Fuel Mobile Content Distribution Platform for sourcing, managing, and delivering content to mobile devices, China Unicom is giving users access to a broad content catalog and over 30,000 different Palm OS applications. The mobile content catalog includes an expansive software selection spanning many categories such as personal productivity, wireless e-mail solutions, interactive gaming, media and MP3 players, health, finance, travel, and business.

"China Unicom is one of the largest carriers in the world with a fast-growing mobile content download business. We are working with China Unicom Newspace to provide its customers with an exceptional mobile experience that will serve as a model for others in the industry," explained Ryan Wuerch, chairman and chief executive officer at Motricity. "We see tremendous opportunity in the burgeoning China market, and our agreement with China Unicom further establishes Motricity as the leading provider of content delivery solutions internationally."

The Samsung i539 is the first Palm OS smartphone launched to the Chinese market which supports Native Chinese and is running on China Unicom's CDMA-1X high speed network. The Samsung i539 phone runs Palm OS Garnet v5.41. It runs a Motorola MX1 CPU with 64 MB ROM / 32 MB RAM memory. It has a clamshell form factor with dual displays. The main display supports 65,000 colors and measures 2.3 inches (324x352 pixels), while the exterior display is a 128x96 pixel OLED.
