The successful launch of Direct Assist on the Windows Mobile platform provided the springboard for GoConnect to further extend this exciting utility search tool to mobile phones with other operating platforms. GoConnect is now pleased to announce that the company has successfully developed Direct Assist for Java enabled handsets with MIDP2 technology (Mobile Information Device Profile version 2). Most mobile handsets introduced to the market recently are equipped with MIDP2 and hence will be compatible with Direct Assist.
Direct Assist can now potentially work on any Java handsets with MIDP2. The First release of Direct Assist on Java handsets by early 2005 is expected to be compatible with a range of Motorola phones with MIDP2 including E398, V600, V525, V550, V620, V3, V535, V303, V300 and V303P, Nokia phones with MIDP2 including 6170, 9300, 7280, 7270, 6260, 6630, 6255, 7610, 9500, 6620, 5140, 6600, 6230, and 7700, and Sony Ericsson phones with MIDP2 including P910, K500i, Z500, K700, S700, P900, and Z1010.
The extension of Direct Assist from Windows Mobile to Java handsets and across multiple major brands and models of each brand has already attracted the interest of a number of mobile content providers and mobile phone retailers. The company is also in discussion with mobile phone retailers to bundle Direct Assist with mobile telephone plans on offer, providing a much value added service and savings to their customers. The increased interest and expanding distribution network are expected to significantly lift the sales of Direct Assist in 2005.

ist vorhin zu ,035 gelaufen - dann laßt uns ma gucken -
jovi, wenn der wert hält, von mir aus auch zu 12 monaten - sind in der letzten zeit aber halt viele frick-eintagsfliegen gewesen
ich habe aber auch noch nen australier im depot 890889 - der im moment sehr solide und richtig in den schwarzen steht, hab ich damals einstellig bekommen - insofern fange ich mehr und mehr an, das land zu lieben :O)
Frick und die anderen Gurus sind ja mal verdammt fasziniert von der Aktie. ich meine wenn sich nur ein kleiner Teil von den Prognosen bewahrheitet könnte es hier recht interessant werden. Anscheinend soll die Firma über die nächsten Monate gute Nachrichten aufweisen. Es werden gute zeiten vorrausgesagt. Mal schauen :)
ja das sieht wirklich gut aus. Die 0,038 muß durchstoßen werden und dann gehts schnell aufwärts. momentan pendeln wir uns schon bei 0,037 fest. das festigt den Weg nach oben. kannst du vielleicht ab und zu mal die times&sales reinstellen bitte?
