Conduits Technologies Inc. Releases PalmBrowser 1.0
for Palm-size PCs running Windows CE
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, April 20, 1999 -- Conduits Technologies Inc. today
announced the public release of PalmBrowser 1.0 for Palm-size PCs
running Windows CE. PalmBrowser is an online web browser for the
small devices, enabling mobile connectivity to the web.
PalmBrowser allows users of the devices (both Gryphon "grayscale" units
as well as Wyvern "color" units) to connect to the web and browse
content from their device in a mobile fashion. The browser supports
browsing of Internet content (through an existing Internet connection
to the device, whether it be a modem, serial link, or Ethernet
connection), downloading both the HTML web content and the images
(GIF and JPEG images supported) that are embedded in the pages.
Other features of PalmBrowser include those that are needed on the
small form-factor device. URL Helpers allow for quick entry of
URLs into the address bar. Caching of all content is supported,
and the ability to browse cached content locally without an
Internet connection is also possible. Due to the small screen
size of the device, some web pages may not appear properly.
Automatic image scaling is supported to alleviate some of these
problems, as well as putting the HTML window into a wide viewing
mode. Total offline browsing of local files is also supported.
PalmBrowser is available for $24.95 from The Palm-size PC Store
(http://www.palm-size-pc.com) and from CEShopper.com.
More information, including a free evaluation version,
can be found at the Conduits website (http://www.conduits.com/ce/).
Conduits develops several other commercial applications for
Windows CE, including TaskSwitcher and PalmKeys, and several open
source efforts, such as CoPilot for Palm-size PC. Conduits also
does custom programming and web design.
