Greenlight Wireless Corporation is announcing the release of a free version of its popular Skweezer portal, which optimizes Web pages, searches, and e-mail for use on PDA devices (Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone, Palm, Symbian) and mobile phones.
Mobile Internet users can access the free version of Skweezer by visiting their website from any wireless data-enabled handset. Skweezer is essentially a Web portal that enables visitors to browse the Internet with Skweezer's optimization technology. This technology compresses and reformats Web content being downloaded to the user's device, so that it loads faster, looks better, and is easier to navigate on small screen devices. The company says that since the Skweezer portal reduces a file's size before it's sent to the device, users who pay wireless data charges on a "per-kilobit" basis save money when they browse with Skweezer.
Skweezer users can personalize their service by creating a free Skweezer account, which provides the ability to save and import browsing favorites, access Plaxo contacts, and set up a customizable Skweezer Home Page. Skweezer Mail, Greenlight Wireless' popular mobile e-mail solution, is also included with a free personalized account. Skweezer Mail allows users to access an unlimited number of POP3 mail accounts and utilizes Skweezer's optimization technology, so messages have reduced file sizes and are also faster to send and receive.
Skweezer Pro, a new "ad-free" service, includes unlimited e-mail customer support and is available for US$14.99 annually. All current Skweezer subscribers will automatically be upgraded to the new Skweezer Pro service.
