Located in the downloadable software store on MobilePlanet's Web site, mobile professionals can find thousands of downloadable software titles for their Pocket PC, Windows(R) CE, Palm OS(R), Symbian(TM)/EPOC and RIM(R) handhelds. Organized by category --business/professional, personal productivity, education/reference, entertainment, industry solutions, software tools and travel --customers can opt for a 15- to 30-day free trial download or easily purchase their software selection and download it instantly.

"This will be a strong addition to our substantial selection of name-brand mobile computing devices and accessories.

"By adding a downloadable software store to our site, mobile professionals can gain instant access to large numbers of popular titles to help them take advantage of the full functionality of their PDAs and handhelds."

Mobile professionals in a variety of fields, such as legal, health care, and sales are purchasing and utilizing handhelds for personal and business uses.

Individuals are interested in transforming their handhelds into mobile computers that assist them with tasks such as time and billing, patient tracking, and other duties that traditionally have been performed manually, tying professionals to awkward paper notebooks, or worse, their desks.

"Our goal is to assist handheld owners in transforming their devices into powerful productivity tools," said Laura Rippy, CEO of Handango. "By teaming up with MobilePlanet we are providing a powerful offering of value-added handheld applications to expand their devices beyond contact managers."
