    "palmOne is excited to again sponsor the 2004 Handango Partner Summit," said Page Murray, Vice President of Marketing at palmOne. "The Handango Partner Summit provides an excellent forum for discussing and learning about new trends in the industry, which in turn helps independent software companies improve the marketplace."

    "We see the Handango Partner Summit as an excellent opportunity to meet with key Symbian OS and Java application development companies," said Niclas Almquist, Head of Symbian SW Development, Platform Development and Global Functions, GSM/UMTS for Sony Ericsson.
