Microsoft and Tully's Coffee to showcase Wi-Fi capabilities on Windows Mobile Pocket PC
Posted on 26-Sep-2003 08:01 | Tags Filed under: News



The Coffee shop and Microsoft are partnering to release kiosks equipped with Windows Mobile 2003 Pocket PCs to offer customers a chance to experience wireless access from Cometa Networks. The kiosks are scheduled to be available in selected Tully's stores in mid-November.

The Wi-Fi-enabled kiosks will allow customers to get a taste of browsing the Internet, using streaming media, sending an instant message and learning about the Wi-Fi service available at Tully's Coffee on the latest Microsoft Windows Mobile Pocket PCs.

"Seattle is recognized as one of the most wireless cities in the country, as well as the unofficial national capital of coffee lovers," said Peter Shirley, director of Microsoft's Mobile Devices Division. "We're simply combining two experiences that Seattle customers love, through the ease and familiarity of our Windows Mobile software and Cometa's fast and reliable Wi-Fi access in the comfortable atmosphere that Tully's provides."

"Earlier this month, Tully's Coffee recognized customer demand for access to high-speed wireless Internet networks and announced plans to deliver Wi-Fi access from Cometa Networks," said Peter Hoedemaker, vice president of retail operations for Tully's Coffee. "We are pleased to announce this upcoming opportunity for our customers to become acquainted with the combination of Wi-Fi access and the powerful and familiar experience on Microsoft's Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs."
