ARGOGROUP UNLEASHES DEVICE TARGETER 1.1 SOLVING WIRELESS PERVASIVE PUBLISHING PROBLEMS Wednesday 6 June 2001 PDF Print Argogroup, the leading supplier of device intelligence for the wireless Internet, today announced the release of version 1.1 of its UbiquinoX Device Targeter software. Enabling the delivery of richer content to all wireless devices, Device Targeter V1.1 ensures a better service for end users making it an essential part of the infrastructure needed by all network operators and wireless Internet content providers. In a market flooded with a vast diversity of WAP devices, content providers have been forced to 'dumb down' their services to ensure a high level of publishing across the pervasive devices. Argogroup's Device Targeter eliminates the need to simplify content, allowing content providers to publish much richer wireless content that appeals to a more users across a broader range of WAP devices. Following the launch of version one of Device Targeter in November last year, today's enhanced technology boasts more device profiles, a greater value-add to customers as well as an additional 18 features requested by network operators, portals and content publishers. With many devices still unable to display data in a tabular format, one of Device Targeter's most requested feature is the ability to publish tables on every WAP device even if it does not support the capability. Character set issues such as the switching of the half and quarter symbols, the platform-wide incompatibility with the Euro symbol and, in some cases, problems with displaying the pound symbol can also be eliminated with Device Targeter V1.1.
