Handmark releases updated MobileDB for Palm OS, Windows Mobile and Smartphone Devices
Handmark has upgraded MobileDB. The new MobileDB 4.1 for Palm Powered, Windows Mobile and Smartphone devices, adds new features while preserving both ease of use and an open file and programming interface.

The new version adds the ability to manage hundreds of data lists on your PDA or mobile phone, and wirelessly download information available on the website.

New features include:
  • Download new data lists from within MobileDB on wireless devices
  • Dial voice calls directly from a record containing a phone data type.
  • Launch a URL in a MobileDB record in the device default browser.
  • Send email to an address in a MobileDB record.

    Upgrades to version 4.1 are available free to registered users of MobileDB version 4.0 from the Handmark web site. Also available are specially priced combinations that include optional plug-ins for Microsoft Access, FileMaker and Microsoft Excel. The plug-ins automate the creation of MobileDB lists from other application data.

    According to Handmark marketing vice president, Douglas Edwards, "MobileDB 4.1 eliminates the need to do a web search and sync with desktops to access and add data from the vast poll of free data available in MobileDB format. By adding voice dial as a data type MobileDB users can easily access multiple lists from clubs, membership organizations, or business contacts that just don't belong in their permanent device address book. On the other hand, any contact in a MobileDB file that you want in your Address Book can be added from a simple menu option. Altogether these new wireless features make MobileDB essential on every smartphone, or WiFi enabled PDA.".
