Selected as "Concept Product Awards" finalist at Comdex
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (November 13, 2000) - Recognizing the high tech industry's most innovative products, the Concept Product Awards committee has selected Mi-Co's pen-on-paper Mobile Internet solutions among its award finalists.
Mi-Co - with solutions that facilitate faster, easier and more personalized handwritten communication from mobile devices via the Internet - is among 13 companies nominated for the honor. Other nominees include Hewlett-Packard, Ethentica, CDVerify, Iridian and Technologies.
The nominated products, none of which have been commercially released, will be previewed tomorrow night at the Silicon Northwest media reception during Fall Comdex in Las Vegas. There, a panel of high tech industry analysts, investors and media judges - including representatives from Wall Street Journal, InfoWorld, Fortune and TechTV - will examine the innovative offerings and select a winner.
Mi-Co will show Mi-NotePad - a product that enables handheld mobile device users to digitally capture and store, free-form and form-based handwriting and sketches. This product complements Mi-Co's Mi-Messages - a service that enables users to efficiently transmit this information wirelessly. Both offerings will become commercially available later this year.
