Bitstream and Wireless Devices in deal to offer Thunderhawk throughout the U.S. Market
Posted on 19-Feb-2004 08:10 | Filed under: News

Bitstream Inc. and Wireless Devices entered an agreement that will see Wireless Devices working with U.S. companies to license ThunderHawk for corporate and carrier use. ThunderHawk is Bitstream's mobile browsing technology that allows anyone with an Internet or wireless connection to browse the Web anytime, anywhere.

"As a leading wireless solutions provider, it makes sense for us to team up with Bitstream. ThunderHawk is a leading mobile browsing technology that fits in with companies' mobile plans," explained Brian Kabb, chief operating officer of Wireless Devices. "We concentrate primarily on small to medium-sized companies that need to use technology to make their businesses more efficient. ThunderHawk offers mobile workforces the perfect solution -- real Web browsing on small wireless devices. This partnership between Bitstream and Wireless Devices is a win-win situation."

"Wireless Devices is a major U.S. reseller focused on delivering wireless solutions to the U.S. market. Their biggest push right now is in the efficiency and effectiveness that the Pocket PC offers to businesses. ThunderHawk fits right into their strategic plans," said Anna Chagnon, president and chief executive officer of Bitstream. "Wireless Devices' parent company, CWS Ltd., has a sales force made up of 400 representatives, who will also begin working immediately with U.S. companies to license ThunderHawk for corporate and carrier use. We're excited about working with Wireless Devices, an established service provider who is knowledgeable about the Pocket PC and Smartphone platforms and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology, and who can expand the reach of our ThunderHawk sales efforts."

A client-server technology, ThunderHawk relies on a server infrastructure combined with a small piece of thin-client code on the actual handheld device. The server infrastructure removes complexity from the handheld devices. It also transmits Web content in a more compact format to the handheld device, making fast and full-featured wireless Web browsing possible.

ThunderHawk does not rely on WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) or cHTML (Compact HyperText Markup Language). This removes the need for Web content developers to create separate Web sites optimized for small devices, or for companies to license separate software that converts Web sites into a format appropriate for cell phones.

ThunderHawk Pocket PC Edition allows consumers to browse the Web on Pocket PC devices. It enables a Pocket PC with a 320x240 color LCD screen to display a legible SVGA (800x600) or VGA (640x480) screen of a Web page. ThunderHawk Enterprise Server is a client-server technology for corporations and telecommunications companies. Providing wireless Web browsing across networks, it gives a mobile workforce complete access to Internet and corporate intranet Web pages.

The company is also workiing on ThunderHawk SmartPhone Edition, currently in alpha release. The ThunderHawk SmartPhone Edition enables consumers to browse the Web on smartphones. It enables a smartphone with a 176x220 color LCD screen to display an 800x946-pixel Web page.
