ST. PETERSBURG, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 19, 2007 -- Hathaway Corporation (PINKSHEETS: HWYI), announced today that their wholly owned subsidiary, Diabetes Detection Inc, (DDI), will be included in this years Blackberry® Solutions Guide put out by Research In Motion (RIM), at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium event in May 2007.

The BlackBerry® Solutions Guide launches to over 3,000 customers at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium. In addition, over 40,000 BlackBerry® Solutions Guide CDs get put in the hands of Carrier Sales teams and end customers, and the web version has over 250,000 visits a year.

This move allows DDI to introduce its diabetes detection device to the BlackBerry® core community as it continues development and further builds on the alliance agreement signed with RIM last year.

The end goal for DDI is to have this device made available to as many physicians as possible so this dreaded disease can be diagnosed early and save lives," stated Mr. Sadruddin Currimbhoy, COO of Hathaway.
