Seattle - - March 1, 2004 - - In conjunction with the second anniversary
of the Microsoft Mobility Partner Advisory Council (MPAC), SplashData,
Inc., the leading developer of “virtual wallet” applications
for mobile devices, announced its participation in the council. Microsoft

suite, including SplashID secure personal identification organizer, SplashMoney
personal finance manager, and SplashShopper shopping list application,
on the Windows Mobile platform.
“MPAC provides us with the opportunity to seek input and guidance
from the top mobile application developers in the industry,” said

pleased to have SplashData as a part of the council as an innovator in
the mobile computing industry.”
