Handamark Express 2 Brings Updated Content and Maps
Handmark is putting more information in consumers hands with Version 2.0 of its Pocket Express bundle of wireless content services for cell phones, smartphones, and wireless PDAs.

The upgrade adds a new interface, location-based services, more news and photos, real-time sports scores, and improved mapping features. Pocket Express gains a significant functional upgrade with the new “Tuxedo” interface that makes all Pocket Express services accessible from a single screen called “PageOne.”

This major upgrade to the Pocket Express experience will be available free to all current subscribers.

The Pocket Express software turns an Internet-enabled wireless handset into a personalized instant information center. News, sports, movies, maps and more can be automatically updated throughout the day, and accessed with minimal navigation. Content can be reached using the five-way navigation buttons on the user’s device or the number keys on a phone keypad.

Direct access to Handmark servers and seamless integration with handset functions increase the speed. Pocket Express can quickly map addresses in the U.S. and Canada and provide turn-by-turn driving directions between two points. The company has also announced an agreement with Tele Atlas, a provider of digital map data and other geographic content, under which Tele Atlas’ map data will be integrated into Handmark mobile services.

Pocket Express Directories search allows users to look up any published personal or business phone number, perform reverse phone number and address searches, or find a person or a business without paying traditional directory assistance charges. Once found, Pocket Express users can add a listing to the device address book, dial the phone number automatically, or display a map showing how to get there.

The Pocket Express service is available for a variety of wireless capable devices including Palm wireless PDAs and the 118909 Treo smartphone, Windows Mobile 116661 Pocket PC and 116662 Smartphones, comments powered by Disqus
