ThinkersGroup.com, Inc Breaks Down Barriers of WAP/Palm Compatibility by Adding A Palm WAP Browser To its FREE Wireless ThinkConnect Offering
GREAT RIVER, N.Y--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 14, 2000-- ThinkersGroup.com, Inc. today announced the addition of the ThinkMotion(TM) WAP Browser for the Palm Computing Platform to it's FREE web-to-wireless application ThinkConnect(TM). ThinkConnect(TM) renders every existing Extensible Markup Language (XML) conversion product and service obsolete, according to Darren Cioffi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

In addition to the free ThinkConnect(TM) Web-to-Wireless intelligent transcoding service, registered users of ThinkConnect(TM) will also receive the ThinkMotion(TM) WAP browser in the form of a `` PQA'' (Palm Query Application), a file easily added to most Palm(TM) Computing Devices. This PQA will allow Palm(TM) Owners to browse any WAP enabled site making the expensive creation of different pages for different devices a thing of the past.

``Now companies only need to be concerned with making their site WAP enabled, and they will automatically be compatible with Palm Platform Devices like HANDSPRING INC (NasdaqNM:HAND) and PALM INC (NasdaqNM:PALM)'' Said Ray Barton, ThinkersGroup.com, Inc. President and CEO, ``With our ThinkConnect(TM) and ThinkMotion(TM) products we have made WAP enabling an easy and automated process, that can be done in as little as 15-20 minutes.''

Through a simple sign up procedure at www.thinkconnect.com wireless users and web site owners can have ThinkConnect(TM) working for them in a matter of minutes.

Research by International Data Corp. (IDC) estimates more than 40 million U.S. households are online, and there are more than 75 million cellular/PCS subscribers and more than 40 million paging subscribers. IDC predicts that by mid-2001, all digital cellular/PCS handsets shipped in the world will be WAP-capable. Experts project that the majority of Internet access will shift so that it is through wireless and not wired means. According to IDC forecasts, by the end of 2002, there will be more wireless subscribers capable of Internet access than wired Internet users. When this happens, there will be a fundamental shift in the thinking of the Web community and the IT industry as a whole.

ThinkersGroup.com, Inc. is a privately held corporation providing software solutions for the gathering and delivery of dynamic content for Internet businesses to wireless devices.
