SYWARE's New Edition of mEnable® Wirelessly Connects Windows XP Tablet PCs with Corporate Servers

Cambridge, MA (January 21, 2003)-SYWARE, Inc., a leading developer of intuitive database tools for business and personal productivity, today announced mEnable® for Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, the newest version of the company's wireless software architecture that allows mobile users to access and modify server data in real time. mEnable allows the development of data-driven applications that wirelessly connect Windows, Windows CE, and Pocket PC-powered handhelds, including the new XP Tablet PCs, with corporate servers. This means mobile workgroups can quickly and easily interact with corporate information in real time - sales professionals can retrieve the latest pricing worksheets, maintenance crews can check parts inventory levels, and physicians can exchange patient notes and diagrams.

"mEnable allows developers and system integrators to provide users with a more natural way to interact with their computing environment," said Sy Danberg, President of SYWARE. "Users can choose to fill out forms and interact with corporate data virtually anywhere and anytime, without the limitations and concerns of an environment that requires synchronization. Whether the user chooses the Tablet PC's pen, handwriting, keyboard or voice input, the mEnable architecture provides instant access to the most recent data on the server."

Wireless Access to the Latest Data
Mobile professionals no longer have to rely on local data that has been previously downloaded to their handhelds and is now out of date. mEnable for Windows XP Tablet PC Edition allows any application written in C++, Visual Basic, eMbedded C++, embedded Visual Basic, or Visual Studio .NET to wirelessly read from or write to any ODBC-enabled data source, such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, Microsoft Access, and Sybase. As a result, synchronization is no longer required to access the latest information residing on corporate servers. Users are instantly connected to their data.

The mEnable architecture extends the reach of mobile workers, using the TCP/IP protocol to seamlessly communicate over LAN, WAN, or Internet connections, whether wireless or wired. The software exchanges data between the mobile device (Tablet PCs, Pocket PCs, or Windows CE devices) and the server, providing full, interactive access to corporate databases. This eliminates synchronization tasks and "islands of data" that occur when data is stored on mobile devices.

Pricing & Delivery
mEnable runs on the full spectrum of mobile, Windows-based PCs, from handheld units to tablets to laptops, including Windows XP-powered Tablet PCs, Pocket PCs, Pocket PC 2002s, and all devices running Windows CE, Windows 9x, Windows 2000, Windows NT, and Windows XP.

mEnable for Windows XP Tablet PC Edition is available for immediate purchase from the SYWARE online store at The mEnable SDK packaged with 10 run-time licenses is priced at $499. The mEnable SDK packaged with 100 run-times is priced at $1999.
