Alameda, Calif.--June 25, 1997--Geoworks (Alameda, Calif.), a provider of smart phone software solutions, announced that it has signed an agreement to license Spyglass' (Naperville, Ill.) Prism content conversion technology. The alliance is intended to enable cellular operators to provide an easy way for smart phone users to access any Web page and automatically reconfigure the pages to meet the requirements of mobile device screens.
The World Wide Web contains vast amounts of content useful to mobile users, but because of its existing, highly visual design, it generally takes a long time to download and is not appropriately formatted for smart phone screens. Converting the content to a format suitable for these devices is expected to reduce download times and increase the usefulness of Internet content for mobile professionals. This will enable cellular network providers to distinguish their service offerings and provide an opportunity to extend consumer brand awareness.
