Includes Global Languages

TAMPA, FLORIDA, December 9, 2003 - Conduits Technologies, Inc. announced today the release of Pocket Slides 1.8, a fully featured presentation solution for the Windows Powered Pocket PC, Pocket PC 2002, and most recently, Handheld PC 2000 class of mobile devices.

Pocket Slides enables users to use presentations on their mobile device. In addition to viewing presentations on the device, and giving presentations by way of an external VGA adaptor, Pocket Slides is the only product on the market that permits the creation of presentations and editing of presentation contents on the mobile device. Existing presentations from Microsoft® PowerPoint® can be copied to the device with the aid of the drag-and-drop conversion that Pocket Slides offers. Pocket Slides incorporates all the animations, transitions, and shapes of Microsoft® PowerPoint®.

Pocket Slides 1.8 improves upon earlier versions by increasing the overall product strength: adding seven global langages, greater Unicode support, broader support for VGA hardware, and updates various product features. Features now fully supported in Pocket Slides 1.8 include: An improved Normal View for Handheld PC devices, permitting zooming in on the slide while expanding the view to nearly fullscreen; improved desktop conversion, including: several internal optimizations, leading to fewer conversion errors; improved Pocket PC 2003 compatibility, fixing some minor graphical problems.

Pocket Slides 1.8 now includes full product usage in seven global languages, including Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish. Full Unicode support is now available for presentation files. Earlier versions were not able to open Asian-language presentations properly.

With the use of a peripheral VGA device (usually a CompactFlash card or expansion attachment) connected to the Pocket PC, Pocket Slides enables the device to connect with a projector system, thus alleviating the need for laptops. Pocket Slides will simultaneously show the presentation on the Pocket PC and the video display. Pocket Slides also supports the infrared remote controls that are bundled with several VGA expansion devices, thereby enabling the speaker to be a distance away from the Pocket PC while presenting. Annotations are supported, by simply drawing on the Pocket PC screen during a presentation. New for 1.8 is broader support for VGA hardware, such as the Toshiba e755 VGA Expansion Pack, the Colorgraphic Voyager Remote Control, and the new Toshiba e800 Pocket PC. Also included is a VGA Plugin system whereby Conduits or a third party can integrate their own VGA subsystem into the Pocket Slides presentation engine and interface.

Pocket Slides 1.8 is available as a 30-day commercial demo from http://www.conduits.com, where the user can download and evaluate the software.

Pocket Slides 1.8 is available for purchase at $39.95. More information, including a full list of features, complete documentation and screenshots can be found on the Pocket Slides website at: http://www.conduits.com/products/slides/.

Conduits develops many commercial applications for Pocket PC, including Peacemaker (a cross-platform infrared exchange utility), Pocket Artist (a drawing and image manipulation program for Pocket PC) and Pocket Album (a photo album and picture frame program for Pocket PC).
