BlueKite's client software now available to download for free 30-day trial


London - September 11th, 2001 - BlueKite.com, a leading mobile Internet software provider, today announced that its bandwidth optimisation client software can now be downloaded for a free 30-day trial. Available from the company's website using a simple one-click installation, (www.bluekite.com), the 'BlueKite Service' can be used on both laptops and Pocket PC devices to significantly improve the speed and quality of wireless Web browsing. By expanding the means through which end users can access its technology, BlueKite aims to stimulate the mass adoption of the mobile Internet.

Mobile professionals and consumers wishing to enhance their mobile Internet experience now have three means of utilising BlueKite's software:

1. Mobile operators. BlueKite's solution has been adopted by a number of leading operators in the US and Europe, including Sprint PCS, BT Cellnet, Swisscom and Connect Austria.

2. Device manufacturers. BlueKite has recently announced a series of partnerships with device manufacturers, including Mitsubishi Trium, Sagem and Sierra Wireless.

3. BlueKite website. Consumers can now download BlueKite's software directly from the company's website.

BlueKite's software platform delivers a rich and familiar Web browsing experience to mobile devices through a combination of intelligent caching, compression and protocol enhancement. The result is that end users can experience the mobile Internet at speeds equivalent to a fixed-line 56 kbps connection without the quality of the service being adversely affected.

Users that are leveraging BlueKite's benefits through their mobile operators can continue doing so and will enjoy the BlueKite optimisation technology by connecting to BlueKite servers hosted by their mobile operator. Users that download the BlueKite client directly from BlueKite's web site or that obtain the BlueKite client through a bundled offering with one of BlueKite's device vendor partners, will automatically connect to BlueKite servers hosted by BlueKite in the US, Europe or Asia. Following the 30-day free trial period, users of the 'BlueKite Service' will be required to pay US$34.95 per year.

Robin Abrams, president and CEO of BlueKite, said: "The 'BlueKite Service' will enable users to experience today the true potential of the wireless Web. So far, the appeal of the mobile Internet has been tempered by slow wireless networks and complex connection solutions. BlueKite's software gives users a mobile Web browsing experience similar to what they enjoy in their homes and offices, and the response from current users has been unanimously positive."
