MobiMate's WorldMate now bundled in the U.S. and Asia Pacific with HP iPAQ Pocket PCs
MobiMate Ltd. announced that its WorldMate will be bundled with the new HP iPAQ Pocket PC h5100 and h5500 series for the U.S. and Asia Pacific. This is the first Pocket PC handheld to ship with WorldMate, a full-featured travel utility that includes world clocks, world weather, currency conversion and more.

Nadav Gur, MobiMate's CEO, says, "The WorldMate franchise has been growing by leaps and bounds. Sales have been increasing exponentially and the feature set is getting richer with each new version. It is becoming a 'must have' for business people that work or travel across borders."

"More and more, consumers are relying on their handheld devices to access needed information at their convenience," said Cindy Box, Director of Marketing, HP Handhelds. "The WorldMate utility enables HP customers the ability to use their iPAQ Pocket PCs as a travel resource."

WorldMate is a leading handheld travel application for PDAs and smartphones with hundreds of thousands of downloads to date. Its key features include world clocks with automatic DST calculation, a Today screen plug-in, a world map, 5-day worldwide weather forecasts from The Weather Channel updated on-line, a currency converter with daily exchange rate updates, and an international weights and measurements converter. WorldMate's unique on-line capabilities make it a natural complement for wireless mobile devices.

MobiMate is one of the most well-established mobile application software developers in the industry, publishing best selling titles such as WorldMate and DateMate. MobiMate's Mobile Enterprise Framework serves as the foundation for some of the world's most ambitious PDA-based systems, including Israel's Bank Leumi's Handheld Banking system, launched this fall. MobiMate is based in Rehovot, Israel and is privately held.
