Personal chat in small areas
ProximityMail, available for Pocket PC 2002, turns PDAs into a localized community messaging network. ProximityMail is a collaborative communications application for Bluetooth PDAs that enhances the way localized communities of people network, communicate, and collaborate.

Itís built on a unique technology platform called BluePing Network, which turns groups of Bluetooth PDAs into a spontaneous "random area network" completely free of additional infrastructure Ė no servers or base stations.

ProximityMail facilitates community building, professional networking, and relationship building wherever groups of people are gathered for tradeshows, conferences, ballgames, political events, etc. Users can create and subscribe to groups, broadcast or send private messages and thereby more easily initiate contacts with other members of the community. Unlike other point-to-point networking or messaging products, such as SMS, IM, or email, ProximityMail allows users to communicate spontaneously and anonymously to groups of users, without knowing specific userís PDA id, phone number or email address.
