Bitstream announces Thunderhawk browser for Windows Mobile Smartphones
Bitstream announced the alpha version of ThunderHawk SmartPhone Edition, its wireless Web browsing technology for cell phones. ThunderHawk SmartPhone Edition uses a server infrastructure combined with a small piece of client code on the handheld device. The server converts Web content into a compact format and sends it to the client on the handheld device, making fast and full-featured wireless Web browsing possible even with the wireless industry’s current slow data speeds.

This release brings to cell phones the features ThunderHawk has already implemented on Pocket PCs. ThunderHawk speeds the reading of columns of Web text by eliminating left-right scrolling to finish a line and move to the next. And ThunderHawk makes it easy to find information because it maintains the layout already familiar to the viewer without re-flowing pages into one-dimensional structures. Besides its full-screen mode, ThunderHawk also offers a convenient split-screen mode, with the entire page in the upper half to orient the viewer and a highlighted area at full reading size in the lower window.

With its support for key HTML standards like CSS and DHTML and security protocols like SSL and 128-bit encryption, ThunderHawk SmartPhone Edition enables wireless carriers to provide complete Web browsing to their customers. ThunderHawk removes the need for operators to build a limited number of specialized or streamlined websites for end users.
