Handmark's Pocket Express Now Free
Handmark has released a new version of its Pocket Express news, entertainment and information app. The company has also decided to make the formerly $60/y application available for free. Pocket Express offers users mobile optimized access to news, sports, weather, travel info, horoscopes stocks and more. Handmark also now plans a version with local content for European users with content in eight languages - English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Finnish, and Swedish.
"We have established a popular mobile service millions of people in North America rely on every day for accessing the content they need to stay informed and entertained on their mobile device," said Paul Reddick, Handmark CEO. "We are excited to introduce Pocket Express with local content for mobile users throughout Europe so they too can enjoy a better mobile experience regardless of what language they speak."
"Pocket Express brings the world into the palm of your hand in one simple application," said Vincent Guinier, Vice President and Managing Director of Handmark for Europe. "Its intuitive user interface makes it easy for mobile customers of any age or experience level to find entertainment and information they want easily without the hassle of traditional mobile browsing experience."
The new European version of Pocket Express will initially be available for Java-based phones including a wide variety of Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, and Samsung handsets. Additional releases will cover most other operating systems and handsets available in Europe later this year.
