SplashData’s SplashPhoto 4.0 Now Available
for Nokia Series 60 and Microsoft Smartphone Devices

SplashPhoto now enables users to create and manage electronic photo albums
on all major PDA and smartphone platforms

SEATTLE (December 1, 2003) - - SplashData, Inc., the leading developer of “virtual wallet” applications for mobile devices, announces the launch of SplashPhoto 4.0 for Nokia Series 60 and Microsoft Smartphone devices—a port of their best-selling image viewer for Palm OS, Pocket PC and Sony Ericsson P-Series handhelds.

Executives from both Nokia and Microsoft have expressed enthusiasm for the release of SplashPhoto 4.0 on their respective smartphone platforms:

“SplashData offers an exciting, new application for the Smartphone platform that highlights the rich digital media experience enabled by the Windows Mobile-based Smartphone platform," said Mark Spain, Director of the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft Corp.

"Using SplashPhoto, the growing user base of digital photographers are empowered to organize entire photo albums and create personalized slideshows on their Smartphone devices.”

SplashPhoto, recently named “Best Image Viewer” by the editorial staff of Handheld Computing Magazine, and winner of the Handango Champion Award for “Best Lifestyle Application,” offers a fast, easy-to-use image viewer for PDAs and smartphones. Version 4.0 includes a desktop catalog feature with two-way synchronization, offering the easiest means of managing photos on a desktop PC and handheld device. Its one-of-a-kind desktop application now enables users to organize image collections into personalized categories and, upon synchronization, the images are arranged accordingly on the handheld. There is no limit to the number of personalized categories that users can create.
While other image viewers allow users to view pictures on a device in their original size (many of which are upwards of 1 MB), SplashPhoto enables users to crop images on the desktop, then format and compress them for optimal viewing on the handheld’s screen. As a result, SplashPhoto users are able to store hundred of images on their devices rather than only having the capacity for storing a few.

SplashPhoto 4.0 makes it easier than ever to share photos with friends and family members. First, all images are stored as JPG files, simplifying the process of sharing pictures with people using other operating systems. Secondly, images can be transferred via Bluetooth, infrared or e-mail between different types of devices, including PDAs, smartphones, laptops and other devices.

SplashPhoto 4.0 features include:

SplashPhoto 4.0 is available for $29.95 at www.splashdata.com.
