Extended Systems Supports Windows Mobile 2003 Software for Pocket PCs

6/24/2003 - Extended Systems (Nasdaq: XTND), a leading provider of mobile information management solutions for the enterprise, announced that the company’s software will support Windows Mobile 2003 software for Pocket PCs, the next-generation software for personal digital assistants (PDAs) from Microsoft Corp.

By providing the software and services businesses need to mobilize critical applications on Pocket PC devices, Extended Systems has worked with Microsoft to enable companies like 3M and 20th Century Fox to improve operating efficiencies and increase customer satisfaction through mobile technology (see www.extendedsystems.com/go/mssuccess). For enterprises that have yet to develop and/or deploy a mobile strategy, the robust capabilities of Extended Systems’ mobile software coupled with the advanced features of Windows Mobile software for Pocket PCs present a compelling case for enterprise-wide adoption.

"The value and financial benefits of putting handheld devices into the hands of employees is more evident than ever," said Extended Systems CEO and President Steve Simpson. "We believe significant returns are being realized primarily because companies like Extended Systems and Microsoft have been able to consistently deliver features and applications that enrich the end-user experience and make it easier for people to do their jobs."

"Windows Mobile 2003 software for Pocket PCs provides a great experience for wireless connectivity and messaging while offering other features people have come to expect from a technology-leading PDA," said Mary Rose Becker, group manager for the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft. "The Extended Systems mobile software brings additional value by ensuring that enterprise applications can be extended to Windows Mobile-based devices and that the application data is current and available when users need it."
