AWARD -WINNING ULTRAMOTE® UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROL PACKAGE NOW SUPPORTS DELL'S NEW AXIM X50 SERIES POCKET PCs

New Version Supports Even More Brands of TVs, Stereos, PVRs;
Lets Users Multitask in the Living Room

CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW, LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2004 - Users of the newest Dell Pocket PCs, the Axim X50 series, now can use the award -winning UltraMote® universal remote software and PDA to control their TVs, audio components, personal video recorders and other home theater components - while surfing the web, making Internet phone calls and performing other tasks.

According to a recent study conducted by The Media Center at the American Press Institute, 70 percent of users want to multitask while watching television. Those with wireless networks now can use the Axim X50 to control their home theaters using UltraMote, surf the web, browse digital photos, and even take a Skype call through the Axim headset jack.

UltraMote universal remote software version 3.0 also has been enhanced to support an even broader range of brands and models of televisions, stereos, cable boxes and other devices. Users can customize the Axim and other supported models to surf channels, control DVD players and audio components, change lighting or control other tasks in the home theater. No computer is necessary to set up the UltraMote software, because the software "learns" remote control commands. Users can customize the PDA's remote control screens with their own skins or use the included set.

UltraMote version 3.0 software can be used with the Axim's integrated infrared capability, or the optional, patent -pending UltraMote Extender card can be added to boost range up to 50 feet*.

The UltraMote solution supports 18 other Pocket PC models including other selected Audiovox, Dell, HP, Siemens, and Toshiba models. The UltraMote software is available free for a 14 -day trial by downloading from www.ultramote.com. Existing customers can get a free upgrade for their original PDA, and users who have evaluated earlier versions can try the new version free. The combination package of the UltraMote software and UltraMote Extender card is priced $35 U.S. plus shipping. Software only is priced at $15 U.S.
