[New Mobile Phone Platform Based on WAP ]

REDMOND, Wash. -- "Taking another step toward empowering people through great software any time, any place and on any device, Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) today announced Microsoft(R) Mobile Exp lorer (MME), the company's comprehensive, open software platform designed to power Internet-enabled mobile telephones. Microsoft Mobile Explorer is modular, customizable and flex ible, enabling handset manufacturers and wireless carriers to provide their customers with the choice of a broad line of applications and services on today's data-enabled telepho nes (or "feature phones") and next-generation "smart phones." Microsoft Mobile Explorer is a key component of Microsoft's end-to-end wireless strategy to provide mobile Internet solutions that utilize additional technologies such as Microsoft Exchange Server, the BackOffice(R) family and MSN(TM) Mobile Services.

"Microsoft's goal is to enable secure information access any time, anywhere, from the device of the users' choice," said Harel Kodesh, vice president of the Productivity Applianc e Division at Microsoft. "Today's launch of the MME platform combined with Microsoft Exchange Server and MSN Mobile Services represents a significant step forward in delivering o n that promise through mobile phones."


"Microsoft Mobile Explorer for feature phones is an operating-system-independent, air-link agnostic, browser-based solution that enables secure corporate or personal access to e-mail, personal information manager data and the Internet when connected to a wireless network. It includes the first dual-mode microbrowser that can display both HTML- and WAP 1.1-authored Internet content."

"Microsoft Mobile Explorer for smart phones is designed to support more powerful wireless data computing on high-resolution display devices that are capable of running a full suite of online and offline e-mail, PIM and Internet applications. Microsoft Mobile Explorer for smart phones, which was first demonstrated by Microsoft Chairman and CEO Bill Gates at Telecom 99 in Geneva in October, will utilize a version of the Windows CE operating system specifically optimized for mobile phones. This will enable services including over-the-air data synchronization, hosting of third-party applications and receipt of new multimedia content delivered by third-generation broadband wireless networks."
