Geoworks Corporation, an innovator in mobile data communications services and technologies, today announced the formation of a technical and marketing alliance with U.S. Wireless Corporation, a provider of location information and traffic-related mobile content. The companies have agreed to collaborate on the development and marketing of new integrated wireless location-based services incorporating U.S. Wireless' mobile location information and Geoworks' proprietary Mobile ASP platform.

U.S. Wireless' mobile location information will enable Geoworks to offer its customers personalised wireless content and commerce services that cater to a mobile user's immediate location and individual needs. Coupled with the company's end-to-end Mobile Server+ technology, Geoworks can enable the delivery of location-specific, user-requested information to a variety of mobile devices and platforms, including SMS and WAP-enabled cellular phones, and personal digital assistants and pagers.

"Location-based mobile services are the wave of the future," said Dave Grannan, CEO of Geoworks. "Collaborating with U.S. Wireless puts Geoworks at the forefront of technology and innovation -- building services that mobile consumers want."

"Geoworks is rapidly establishing itself as a leader in the development of products and services in the mobile services arena," said Oliver Hilsenrath, U.S. Wireless Chairman and CEO. "By working with innovative providers like Geoworks, we increase the range of location-based services available to the wireless community, and foster usage of the U.S. Wireless location network."
