ViewSonic Corporation announced that it will expand its current mobile and wireless product portfolio to include a Microsoft Windows Powered Pocket PC device that may be the first to break the $300 price barrier. The Pocket PC V35 will operate on the Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 software platform and may be the smallest, lightest and lowest priced Pocket PC that runs the very latest XScale processor from Intel.

The Pocket PC V35 may provide business customers and general consumers with a powerful personal information manager, and give these users the ability to retrieve e-mail, play music, read e-books and watch video. In addition to these applications, ViewSonic will ship a custom Microsoft PowerPoint file viewer and a digital image viewer application with the Pocket PC V35.

The Pocket PC V35 will be available in November through national and regional retailers, authorized resellers, distributors and mail order with a one-year warranty. For further information, please visit the company's web site at www.viewsonic.com.
