AvantGo to Offer InfoSpace.com's Mobile Private Label Portals to Users of Palm Computing Platform, Windows CE and Wireless PDAs

  AvantGo, Inc., the authority in managing mobile information, today announced that it is expanding its business relationship with InfoSpace.com (NASDAQ:INSP), a leading provider of infrastructure services for consumers, merchants and wireless devices, to provide InfoSpace.com's mobile private label portals to handheld devices, such as those based on Palm Computing and Windows CE platforms, as well as wireless PDAs.

    InfoSpace.com and AvantGo.com will provide business communities' private label portals with the ability to give their customers access to relevant real-world information any time, anywhere. The new services will allow businesses to offer mobile portals under their own brand. These businesses can then offer wireless services to their customers without having to go through a costly, proprietary development effort.

    "We are pleased to be extending the reach of our wireless services to AvantGo.com's business communities' to users of PDAs and other handheld devices," said Naveen Jain, CEO of InfoSpace.com. "Where before we were offering broader information to AvantGo.com users, the flexibility and scalability of our wireless platform enables us to tailor our services to meet the needs of different business communities who use mobile devices."

    AvantGo.com is the only free, interactive service to give individuals "on the go" connectivity to personalized content and rich interactive applications with easy access to thousands of popular Web sites via their mobile devices. With the agreement with InfoSpace.com, AvantGo.com will enable consumer and business users to interact with personalized information off-line or wirelessly in real-time any time, anywhere. The free service is available today to anyone who visits http://www.avantgo.com.

    Felix Lin, CEO of AvantGo added: "Business leaders will be excited to hear that we are extending our relationship with InfoSpace.com to offer the fastest, most cost-effective way to wirelessly reach their customers."
