Handango In-Hand now available for Windows Mobile Pocket PC
Handango has announced the availability of Handango InHand for Windows Mobile Pocket PCs devices. The Handango InHand is an intelligent, device-resident download client for smartphones and wireless handhelds.

Handango InHand enables operators to streamline content delivery across all smart phones; present a compelling, branded interface; improve customer awareness of downloads; increase content revenues and data traffic; and deliver a superior download experience.

Handango InHand for Pocket PC joins the Handango InHand family of download clients for smart phones and wireless handhelds utilizing Symbian UIQ, Palm OS or Windows Mobile software. Operators and device manufacturers using Handango InHand include Sprint, Sierra Wireless and Sony Ericsson.

"Handango InHand for Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs gives customers and operators alike tremendous benefits," said Randy Eisenman, president and chief executive officer of Handango. "For customers, finding and getting applications is easier than ever, and for operators, the process of educating customers about additional downloads is seamless."

Handango InHand for Pocket PC enables mobile operators to leverage the rich application features of Windows Mobile-based devices, such as it's high resolution screens, fast processors, wireless capabilities and much more.

"Microsoft is excited Handango has made its InHand application available for Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC," said Daniel Bouie, manager of the Mobile2Market Program at Microsoft Corp. "Using InHand, mobile operators can access the ever-expanding list of unique applications designed for the Windows Mobile platform and Windows Mobile Logo Certification program, as well as streamline content delivery and improve customer awareness of mobile downloads."

Operators and device manufacturers can fully brand the entire client - including all naming, graphics, download options and the content catalog itself - to deliver a consistent brand presence to their customers.

All content is built on an XML data architecture, which ensures very efficient data transmission as well as the ability for operators to manage the data feeds in-house. Since this is a disconnected application it allows subscribers who are out of service range or who do not have a data plan can preview downloads within Handango InHand, providing a compelling incentive for establishing data service.

When connected customers can update Handango InHand at their convenience, refreshing the catalog with the newest titles. The content is protected via a seamless DRM (Digital Rights Management) infrastructure, and the software automatically generates device-specific unlock codes without any hassle for the customer while delivering rock-solid security to developers and song artists.
