YadaYada Inc. (www.yadayada.com), the first integrated wireless service provider and personalized mobile Web portal for PDAs, announced today that it has partnered with TravelApe (www.travelape.com) to bring the power of the world's premier travel information site into the hands of PDA users.

YadaYada customers now have wireless access to PDA-optimized City Guides and hotel booking information for sixteen major metropolitan cities. YadaYada's service is available through 1-800-YadaYada or at www.yadayada.com.

The PDA-optimized version of TravelApe can be accessed in the "travel" section of YadaYada's Wireless Web page. On the site, users can instantly find information about attractions, nightlife, restaurants and more, as well as being able to book a hotel room directly through the site. Featured cities include Atlantic City, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver and Washington, D.C.

"We are constantly working to provide our Wireless Web customers with easy access to the information that is of most value to them as mobile users, so partnering with a travel information site was an obvious choice," said David Behin, director of content for YadaYada. "TravelApe directly addresses one of the key needs of the business traveler on the go; this is exactly the sort of information for which the Wireless Web was created."

"Travelape.com is committed to providing the on-the-go traveler with state of the art technology, so partnering with an industry leader like YadaYada is just natural," said Michael Hofeld, chief executive officer of TravelApe.

YadaYada users can access any HTML-created Web site using YadaYada's wireless Web browser, and send and receive e-mail from up to six POP3 e-mail accounts. In addition, users can utilize the "My YadaYada" Web portal to personalize information they would like pushed to their PDAs, such as news, sports scores, stock updates and weather reports.
