Conduits Technologies, Inc. Announces Availability of Pocket Watch for Microsoft® Windows Powered Smartphone Software

TAMPA, FLORIDA - October 22nd, 2002- At the global launch of the Microsoft Windows® Powered Smartphone today, Conduits Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of software for the Microsoft Pocket PC platform, announced that Pocket Watch, Conduits' interactive world clock application, is now optimized for Microsoft Windows Powered Smartphone software.

Founded in 1999, Florida-based Conduits Technologies, Inc. has risen to the forefront of Microsoft Pocket PC software developers as a leader in style and innovation. Pocket Watch presents the user with a world view of daylight information. A world map with a moving "night boundary" separates areas of daytime and nighttime. The boundary moves right to left as the day elapses, and changes shape as the year progresses (approaching flatness on the equinoxes). The picture is "skinnable" and different pictures of the world can be used (when downloaded into the Smartphone). The user may bind up to nine "favourite cities" to the numbers on the Smartphone keypad.

Microsoft Windows Powered Smartphone provides a rich data platform for mobile developers and operators to build compelling mobile data applications and services. Mobile phones built on the Smartphone platform combine fully integrated voice and data capabilities with a rich set of applications including personal information management (PIM), gaming and multimedia features in a small, lightweight mobile phone form factor. Orange is the first operator worldwide to announce retail availability of a Windows Powered Smartphone, the Orange Smartphone SPV™.

"Microsoft Windows Powered Smartphone helps to fulfill the goal of creating an easy to use, high powered mobile device primarily for data viewing. Pocket Watch fits into the platform by providing a quick and easy method to examine the time in various locations around the world. Conduits looks forward to supporting the Windows Powered Smartphone with our other applications such as Pocket Slides, our presentation package," says Conduits President and CEO, Jason Patterson.

"Microsoft is excited that Pocket Watch application is available for Smartphone," said Robbie Wright, Director, Mobile Devices Marketing Group, Microsoft EMEA. "Pocket Watch takes advantage of Smartphone's rich data capabilities to offer users simplified navigation and global communication through its 'global time reference' feature."

Conduits develops commercial applications for Microsoft Windows Powered Pocket PC, including Pocket Slides (a PowerPoint presenter and editor), Peacemaker (a cross-platform infrared exchange utility) and Pocket Artist (a drawing and image manipulation program for the Pocket PC).
