SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA and MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 25,
2005) -

Psion Teklogix' WORKABOUT PRO S is now available to Apacheta's direct
store delivery and route accounting customers

Apacheta Corporation, a developer of mobile business solutions for
product and package distribution industries and Psion Teklogix,
(LSE:PON), a global provider of solutions for mobile computing, wireless
data collection and RFID, today announced Apacheta has certified the use
of Psion Teklogix line of WORKABOUT PRO devices with its mobile
solutions and the recently launched WORKABOUT PRO S will integrate with
its staple product, RouteACE. Apacheta's RouteACE offers manufacturing
and delivery companies a cost-effective and innovative way to move older
hand-held and/or paper-only routes to a more feature-rich and robust
wireless solution.

Apacheta's RouteACE solution coupled with the WORKBOUT PRO S provides
wireless communications using 802.11b within depots and distribution
centers, wide-area wireless while on route, Bluetooth printing for
invoice and customer receipts, and package or product scanning and RF
identification. Apacheta also supports the Psion Teklogix WORKABOUT PRO
M offering for its pre-sales solutions, which require alpha/numeric
keypad functionality.

"Psion Teklogix' philosophy of providing mobile computing solutions that
meet the unique needs of customers in a wide range of markets fits well
with Apacheta's strategy," said John Major, chief executive officer of
Apacheta. "We designed our software for adaptability, and the WORKABOUT
PRO S is designed the same way - capable of being upgraded in the field
and on the fly. We look forward to a close working relationship built on
a shared commitment to customer needs."

The RouteACE™ software uses Microsoft .NET architecture uniquely
coupled with XML, to create workflow-oriented processes on the WORKABOUT
PRO family of devices. This approach provides for mobile analytics, a
highly customizable and expandable business process, and end-to-end
integration with a customer's proprietary or packaged host system.

"The partnership with Apacheta enables us to provide complete, rugged
mobile computing solutions to meet the specific needs of route
accounting and direct store delivery customers," said Rob Douglas,
president, Psion Teklogix Americas. "The WORKABOUT PRO line of products
has been built on the proven and highly successful Workabout platform,
and is designed to deliver the functionality and customization that
customers need."

An ergonomic and compact-yet-rugged hand-held computer, the WORKABOUT
PRO S is built on Psion Teklogix' Windows CE .NET and the Intel XScale
processor platform. It offers a range of simultaneously supported radio
options including WWAN (GSM/GPRS, CDMA), WPAN (Bluetooth) and WLAN
(802.11b). The rugged design of the WORKABOUT PRO S delivers reliable
performance in harsh environments.
