Handmark, publisher of software for Palm OS and Windows Mobile platforms for handheld devices, has signed a content publishing agreement with Sprint to provide games that can be downloaded wirelessly through PCS Vision to PCS Vision Smart Devices such as the new PCS Smart Device Treo 600 by Handspring. Currently eleven titles from Handmark will be available for purchase including Monopoly, Scrabble, Warfare Incorporated, Yahtzee, Battleship, MobileDB, and others. Titles will cost between $9.99 and $29.99 and once purchased will simply be added to the customer's PCS invoice.

"PCS Vision offers Sprint customers the ability to do more than make a call as they move their online world in the palm of their hand with Vision-enabled PCS Phones," said Chip Novick, vice president of consumer marketing for the PCS Division of Sprint. "PCS Vision on the Treo 600 exemplifies this as it boosts professional productivity through access of information and email, allows customers to share everyday moments instantly with Picture Mail, and turns otherwise idle time into fun with downloadable games from Handmark."

"Handmark is the number one provider of handheld content for PDAs and through this agreement with Sprint, we are creating a new distribution opportunity to continue our leadership," said Douglas Edwards, vice president of marketing for Handmark. "The combination of Handmark content expertise with the enhanced Sprint Nationwide Network will provide customers with an easy-to-use, graphically rich catalog of games for converged devices such as the new Treo 600."

The Treo 600 is the first Palm Powered(TM) device to have access to Sprint billed downloadable PCS Vision applications (Picture Mail(SM), Games, Ringers, Screensavers) via the enhanced Sprint Nationwide PCS Network. The PCS Vision Smart Device Treo 600 by Handspring is the ultimate tool for mobile professionals and on-the-go consumers that want to shed their multiple devices by combining their wireless phone, messaging, Palm OSĀ® organizer and digital camera. The Treo 600 is now available at Sprint Stores nationwide.
