Handspring today announced the availability of its GPRS software upgrade for Rogers AT&T Wireless Treo 180 customers in Canada. The Handspring Treo GPRS upgrade is a no-charge, downloadable software upgrade that enables Handspring Treo 180 customers from Rogers AT&T Wireless to access the wireless Internet and corporate applications such as e-mail. New and existing Rogers AT&T Wireless customers can access the software upgrade at no additional charge via the Rogers AT&T Wireless website.

"The arrival of the GPRS software upgrade is very important to our Treo 180 customers who clearly understand the benefits of having an all-in-one voice and data wireless device," said Mansell Nelson, Vice President and General Manager, Interactive Mobile Services, Rogers AT&T Wireless. "Rogers AT&T Wireless customers will also enjoy anytime, anywhere wireless access to the Internet and e-mail while making and receiving wireless phone calls and sending two-way text messages on their Treo 180. This is made possible because of the Rogers AT&T Wireless GSM/GPRS network - the country’s largest, integrated voice and data, digital wireless network and the world standard for wireless communications."

"We are pleased to offer Rogers AT&T Wireless customers the ability to access wireless information on their Treo 180 across Canada on the extensive Rogers AT&T Wireless GSM/GPRS network," said Joe Sipher, Vice President of Product Marketing for Handspring, Inc.
