Sprint selects Handango for PCS Vision

The agreement builds on Handango’s current expertise in providing mobile applications and provisioning technology for Sprint Palm OS and Pocket PC phones to now include a broad new selection of J2MEapplications for PCS Vision customers.

“PCS Vision is about expanding wireless possibilities and putting online services in the palm of every customer’s hand,” said Chip Novick, vice president of consumer marketing for the PCS Division of Sprint. “Sprint is expanding the portfolio of its PCS Vision applications by tapping into Handango’s extensive catalog of Java applications.”

All applications provided by Handango are certified Handango Mobile Ready. This certification ensures that Sprint can launch with a secure, tested and quality application catalog in a timely manner.

“Sprint continues to enhance the wireless experience for customers by adding new tools and applications to its PCS Vision service,” said Laura Rippy, chief executive officer for Handango. “By working together, Handango and Sprint can identify and provide customers with a trusted source to discover and access an extensive catalog of software.”

Handango will also work to secure new relationships with software developers in order to deliver their applications to PCS Vision customers’ handsets across the enhanced Sprint Nationwide PCS Network. Handango’s software catalog includes entertainment, games, news, weather, sports, money, travel and many other categories of content.
