Paragon Software Showcases Handy Weather Service – the Most Innovative
Way of Getting Instant Weather Forecasts Directly to Mobile Devices

Weather Data Provided by Intellicast Meteorological Company

Freiburg, Germany – Febr. 12, 2008 – Paragon Software Group (SHDD & Epocware divisions), the leading developer of innovative software applications for mobile devices and PC desktops, is proud to announce that users of its Handy Weather application for PDAs and smartphones will now be supported by the most reliable Intellicast service of Weather Services International, the authority for expert weather data. Paragon Software (Paragon Technologie GmbH) will demonstrate its flagship Handy Weather service with its extended and highly detailed graphical capabilities at Mobile World Congress 2008, Febr. 11-14, Hall 7, Stand 7C33.

Handy Weather is the easiest and most reliable way of accessing local, as well as distant, weather information in Celsius and Fahrenheit – all in a mobile environment. Handy Weather's users can get instant and detailed five-day weather forecasts, supported by satellite weather maps, for thousands of cities worldwide. To get expert weather data, users can pick any location from a preset list of 15,000 cities from all over the world. Wireless Internet compatibility is the only requirement needed for users to get real-time weather information when away from the desk.

Handy Weather's comprehensive forecasts are provided 24/7 through Intellicast's weather database that has served more than four million users for over a decade and has an acclaimed reputation for its stability and reliance. At the same time, Paragon's server guarantees fast data access for up to two million simultaneous users.

The Samsung i450 smartphone, showcased in January at CES 2008 in Las Vegas, is an innovative music phone that offers a dual slider design and touch-wheel music navigation. When the i450 slides up, the mobile phone supports powerful smartphone features with S60 software on Symbian OS. Running on the Symbian S60 platform, the i450 provides advanced download application and multitasking features in fast speed through HSDPA connectivity. When it slides down, the phone activates as a music player with touch wheel navigation which enables the users to control the multimedia menus easily. Moreover, metallic speakers supporting ICEpower® amplifier developed by Bang & Olufsen® offer superb sound quality to music phone users.

Some of Handy Weather features include:

  • Celsius and Fahrenheit options for high and low day temperature
  • Temperature graphics
  • Wind direction and speed
  • UV index
  • Pressure and visibility
  • Humidity, and other important weather data

In addition, Handy Weather's latest release has a new feature enabling its users to get visual representations of various weather conditions by way of viewing several types of maps, such as Current Temperature, Pressure and Satellite maps. These graphically attractive maps can be customized according to the individual user's needs – one can view the map in its actual or full size, fitting precisely within the device's screen.

For maximum ease of use, Handy Weather can be set to automatically update weather forecasts at certain intervals (every four, eight, twelve or twenty-four hours), or at a specifically desired time preset by the user. Furthermore, every time the wireless phone is activated, a weather forecast automatically downloads on the device, whether the application is running or not. Wireless Internet compatibility is the only condition required to set the updates in the automatic updates mode.

"Coupled with the most reliable data access support by the meteorological veteran Intellicast, Handy Weather makes a perfect solution for our mobile customers, allowing them to get the most updated and feature-rich weather forecasts for any desired destination wirelessly and with little effort on their part," said Jeanne Kolesnik, Paragon's Business Development Director, Smart Handheld Devices and Epocware divisions. "Handy Weather's timely and detailed weather information offers people on-the-go that much needed piece of mind to better plan their business or outdoor activities."

Handy Weather is Paragon's most popular application for Windows Mobile and S60 on Symbian OS, topping best-selling lists and becoming the first Symbian Signed applications for Symbian OS v9. A one-year subscription for Handy Weather wireless weather forecast service is available for 19.95 USD via download from http://www.penreader.com and http://www.epocware.com.
