MMS for Handspring Treo 600 coming from Electric Pocket
Electric Pocket announced it is working with Handspring to develop a standards compliant multi-media messaging service (MMS) solution for the Treo 600 smartphone. Handspring's new MMS application, which will be based upon Electric Pocket's popular Pixer MMS foundation, will enable carriers that sell the Treo 600 to offer powerful MMS capabilities to their customers.

"Simple, easy-to-use, multi-media messaging will be an important feature of Treo 600," said Joe Sipher, vice president of worldwide marketing for Handspring. "We are delighted to work with Electric Pocket, with their vast experience in multi-media messaging and PDA application development, to develop a Treo-specific MMS application for our customers."

Electric Pocket's MMS technology will enable Treo 600 users who subscribe to multi-media messaging services to send and receive MMS messages, including pictures and handwritten notes, directly from their device via MMS. The MMS solution being designed by Handspring and using Electric Pocket's messaging architecture, will make picture messaging easier for users, as they can take advantage of the handheld's screen, stylus and QWERTY keyboard when composing messages. It will also enable users to leverage the digital camera built into the Treo 600, allowing them to snap and send pictures to others within a matter of seconds.

"We have been developing specialized applications for the Treo series since it was first introduced, and are very excited to work with Handspring to develop the MMS technology that will be a key ingredient to making the Treo 600 a revolutionary communications device," said Iain Barclay, Electric Pocket's Chief Product Officer. "Electric Pocket has made a significant investment in developing multi-media messaging technologies for wireless PDAs, which can be leveraged by device manufactures and operators looking to offer MMS solutions to their customers."
