Impatica Announced as a Finalist for Andrew Seybold Choice Awards 2007 for Most Innovative Wireless Devices and Most Innovative Business Application

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 19, 2007) - Andrew Seybold, Inc., a wireless industry consulting firm that advises both Fortune 1000 organizations and emerging companies announces Impatica Inc. as a finalist for the Andrew Seybold Choice Awards in the categories Most Innovative Wireless Device and Most Innovative Business Application for Impatica ShowMate™, the first and only device to project full-featured PowerPoint presentations from BlackBerry, Sony Ericsson and Windows Mobile handhelds.

The key themes in this year's awards are "imagine," "innovate" and "impact". The awards recognize innovative products and concepts that are making or have the potential to make a positive impact on wireless mobility. All nominations submitted must have been commercially deployed between January 2006 and February 15, 2007. The final award winners in category will be named at the 17th Annual Andrew Seybold Wireless Dinner in Orlando, FL on March 27, 2007 during CTIA Wireless 2007.

"This year we received an overwhelming number of entries for our awards," said Andy Seybold, President and CEO of Andrew Seybold, Inc. "We judged the products and services for their impact on the wireless market, how they embrace new, innovative technologies, how easy they are to use and how they simplify the user experience."

"Impatica ShowMate has been deployed and is being enthusiastically used by people around the world," commented Michael Doyle, Chairman and CEO of Impatica Inc., "but we are always delighted to receive independent recognition for our products. It is especially gratifying when that recognition comes from such a well respected source as the Andrew Seybold Choice Awards."

A pocket-sized device that weighs less than three ounces, ShowMate supports full-featured PowerPoint presentations, and displays rich text, images, charts, graphs, and animations and slide transition effects. To use ShowMate, transfer your PowerPoint presentations to the handheld from your desktop computer, from a web site or over-the-air as an e-mail attachment. Once on location and ready to present, simply connect the ShowMate to the projector or large screen display and use Bluetooth to start and control the presentation from your BlackBerry, Sony Ericsson or Windows Mobile handheld. The ShowMate transforms the handheld into a wireless personal teleprompter - the ultimate presentation tool.
