GoAmerica, Inc. (Hackensack, NJ; www.goamerica.com) and Sierra Wireless, Inc. (Richmond, BC; www.sierrawireless.com) will team up to provide wireless data and Internet access for the Handspring Visor handheld computer. The wireless solution will combine Go America's Go.Web service with the Handspring Visor, and a new wireless adapter developed by Sierra Wireless that will be designed specifically to interface with the Visor's "Springboard" slot. The Visor has an expansion slot on the back of the unit, (called Springboard), that allows the user to swap different modules in and out of the product. GoAmerica's Go.Web service for the Handspring Visor will allow businesses and individuals wireless access to their corporate intranet, POP3 e-mail, and the Internet using the AT&T Wireless and Verizon Wireless Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) networks. Go.Web's proprietary technology compresses and encrypts data and will optimize it for viewing on the Visor. Go.Web for the Visor will also support Microsoft Word attachments that can be reviewed on the PDA. Users will also be able to customize Go.Web to suit their individual needs. GoAmerica has entered into an initial supply agreement with Sierra Wireless for their new Springboard Adapter, with commercial deliveries expected to commence in the first quarter, 2001.
