HAYWARD, Calif -- AvantGo, Inc.

The Company believes the patent will be issued before the end of March 2003.
AvantGo is a pioneer in allowing individuals to mobilize web-based content and applications using handheld devices, whether those devices are connected wirelessly or synchronized though a desktop computer or server. This newest patent will cover AvantGo's industry-leading methodology for off-line viewing of web pages or "channels" of content that enable marketers and enterprises to deliver robust mobile applications in an always-available mode. It will include the synchronization of content, the definition of channels and the viewing of content for XML-based web services, applications and data for applications where field data and transaction integrity are critical. As with the Company's first two patents, the invention is core to the unique ability for AvantGo software to enable wireless and off-line access to information on a variety of mobile devices.
"This patent recognizes our unique systems and methods for delivering web content to mobile devices, as well as optimizing that content for speed, size and efficiency, whether or not a device is connected to a network. It is encouraging to see that our development teams' efforts in these areas are being recognized for their innovation," said Tom Whittaker, AvantGo's chief technology officer and co-author of the patent. "Each of the patents that we have received strengthens our technology leadership in providing best-of-class solutions for our mobile customers." AvantGo has 14 additional patents pending.
