Dave’s Ipaq – Greenlight Wireless Skweezer Service Gaining Traction in the Marketplace @ Dave’s iPAQ
IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct. 4, 2004–Greenlight Wireless Corp. today announced that the number of Skweezer customers has more than doubled since the release of version 2.0 last July. Skweezer is Greenlight Wireless’ portal-based service that optimizes Web content for PDAs and mobile phones.
Greenlight Wireless partially credits this surge of subscriptions to Skweezer 2.0’s increased compatibility with XHTML-enabled cell phones, such as the latest Nokia, Ericsson, and Motorola handsets. This has greatly increased the product’s target market, as previous versions of Skweezer were only compatible with more relatively robust devices, such as Pocket PC- and Palm-based Smartphones and PDAs. Skweezer 2.0 also provides a multi-lingual user interface that can be viewed in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish. This interface, combined with a series of positive reviews from European technology columnists, has boosted overseas sales by 22 percent over the past two months.
Bandwidth consumption by Skweezer users has also grown since the release of version 2.0. The amount of Web-browsing data processed by Skweezer increased 16 percent, while data consumption related to Skweezer’s updated e-mail solution has increased nearly 150 percent in the same timeframe. Upcoming releases of Skweezer will build on the success of its mail utility by incorporating a suite of new features, such as instant messaging and RSS newsfeeds, in an effort to make the product compelling to a broader range of wireless consumers.
Skweezer 2.0 can be purchased online at www.greenlightwireless.net/signup for $14.99, which includes a no-obligation 30-day trial period and a full year of service. More information about Skweezer can be found on the Greenlight Wireless Web site at www.greenlightwireless.net.
