Bring in the ThunderHawk

Bringing the desktop browser experience to the Jornada
ThunderHawk gives you the same browsing experience on a Jornada as you are used to on the desktop. You can biew the full text and images of any Web page without excessive scrolling. Because we do not rely on WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) or cHTML (Compact HyperText Markup Language), ThunderHawk does not require Web content providers to repurpose their content – or build one Web site for the desktop and another for the wireless world.
Leveraging Experience in Fonts and Font Technology
ThunderHawk comes from Bitstream, a world-renowned developer of font technology and high-quality digital fonts. By leveraging its expertise in font technology, Bitstream can display full Web pages on small color LCD screens (320 x 240) while maintaining full text legibility.
Bitstream has also created Kaasila, a font set designed specifically for wireless devices. Kaasila is named after Thunderhawk’s chief software architect, Sampo Kaasila, who invented TrueType while working at Apple.
