Phoenix HyperSpace is a revolutionary computing environment that
simplifies and improves the mobile experience by enabling users to instantly
launch specialized, secure applications that can run independently of

Users can begin searching the web, sending and receiving email, using other
web-based applications and, now, work in important productivity applications
within seconds of turning on their computer. HyperSpace also automatically
connects your mobile computer to the best available network, while achieving
new levels of uptime and security. HyperSpace is immediately available for

“We made a promise to PC users with our PC 3.0 strategy to deliver
software and services that simplify the mobile computing experience. Our
launch of HyperSpace Office in partnership with ThinkFree Corp. is another
significant step forward towards fulfilling that pledge,” said Woody Hobbs,
President and CEO of Phoenix Technologies. “Mobile PC users are reliant on
productivity tools like word processors and spreadsheets, and HyperSpace
delivers those applications in an instant-on, always-connected and battery-
saving environment.”

By partnering with ThinkFree, HyperSpace offers expanded business
productivity capabilities for mobile users that function outside of the
Windows environment. The move enables the shifting of a greater percentage of
the average mobile user’s computing activities from Windows into HyperSpace.
HyperSpace users will be able to begin working seconds after powering up their
notebooks in the applications they rely on most, including web browsing,
webmail, word processing, spreadsheets, presentations and a wide variety of
web-based applications.

meet the needs of increasingly mobile PC users and are optimized to work with
the new instant-on Phoenix HyperSpace experience,” said Su Jin Kim, CEO,
