Pinpoint and Palmgear partner to fuel the Palm OS Mobile ecosystem
Pinpoint Networks and PalmGearannounced the initiation of a partnership and joint strategy to broaden the availability of Palm software to the growing Palm Powered handheld market. With over 30 million Palm Powered devices sold worldwide, Palm OS is one of the most ubiquitous mobile operating systems in the world.

As part of this partnership, PalmGear will implement Pinpoint's Fuel technology to facilitate Over the Air (OTA) provisioning of Palm applications from the PalmGear.com site. Furthering their position as the foremost Palm OS software marketplace, PalmGear will now offer their customers a simple and easy way to purchase applications not only from their PC but also directly from their OTA-enabled Palm Powered devices. By including the ability for their customers to make direct purchases from their Palm devices, PalmGear will offer their 15,000+ developers an additional and extremely valuable distribution channel.

Pinpoint's Fuel technology manages the sourcing and delivery of mobile content, enabling robust and efficient mobile content distribution channels and solutions, while PalmGear provides essential distribution services to the Palm OS developer community. "PalmGear continues to deliver new, innovative ways to deliver one of the largest catalogs of mobile applications in the industry," said Rob Whittle, senior vice president of business development and sales of PalmGear. "The combination of PalmGear's large content catalog with Pinpoint's provisioning capabilities will provide PalmGear customers and mobile Palm users with an optimized, easy-to-use content catalog for their networked devices."

In addition, PalmGear will distribute their extensive Palm OS content catalog through Pinpoint's mobile operator customers and media partners, providing PalmGear developers with another distribution channel. "The partnership with PalmGear is a big win for Pinpoint in two ways. First we're excited that our Fuel solution has been selected by PalmGear to support their developers and customers. Second, we can now satisfy our customer and distribution partners' need to support their growing base of end users with network-enabled Palm Powered devices like the new Handspring Treo 600 and Palm Tungsten W with the largest catalog of Palm applications," said Tim Horan, vice president of sales and business development at Pinpoint. "Fuel's ability to support not only WAP, J2ME and SMS, but all types of mobile media including Palm is critical to our customers and developer community as we continue to provide the market with the most efficient mobile content sourcing, management, and provisioning solutions available."
