Insignia Solutions(R) (Nasdaq:INSG), the leading provider of accelerated Java(TM) software solutions for information appliances, announced today that its Jeode(TM) virtual machine technologies are incorporated into a 10-inch "SuperPDA" that will ship next month by ViewSonic(R) Corporation, a worldwide leader in visual technologies.

ViewSonic's innovative ViewPad(TM) 100 SuperPDA is a lightweight (under 2.5 pounds), stylish, handheld mobile communication and information management product for business professionals. Insignia's Jeode platform allows ViewPad 100 users to experience the rich Java content on the Web by enabling them to take advantage of Java-enabled websites and execute Java applets from within their Internet Explorer browsers.

"Insignia has earned a reputation for delivering high performance, robust Java virtual machine technologies for Windows CE and other platforms," said Marc McConnaughey, senior vice president of the Advanced Technology and Products Group at ViewSonic. "Insignia's market leadership position, superior technology and experience in delivering a JVM plug-in for Internet Explorer were key factors in our decision to select them."

"ViewSonic's extensive experience with CRT displays, flat-panel monitors, projectors and plasma displays enables them to deliver a full-screen, color PDA product that offers both mobility and a superior viewing experience," said Mark McMillan, president and chief operating officer with Insignia Solutions. "One of the best ways for their users to check out this value proposition is to experience one of the dynamic Java-enabled websites on the Internet -- which, of course, our Jeode technology makes possible."
