    ¡§PPC Tablet Remote Control Suite 2.0¡¨ software uses a Pocket PC screen to
    emulate one or more "virtual" input devices, such as keyboard, keypad, macro
    keys, touchpad and tablet, in order to remotely control a desktop or laptop
    PC, or to complement the PC's existing input hardware. Download the free
    trial from Handango or PocketGear:



    The Client, deployed on the Pocket PC device, sends pre-defined input
    signals to the Server on a host PC through an ActiveSync connection or any
    TCP/IP network, wired or wireless. Saved in special layout profiles, the
    input signals can include key strokes, key combinations, key sequences, and
    mouse behaviors. The Designer can be used to create a new layout profile, or
    modify or delete existing profiles. PPC Tablet is designed with the
    following user needs in mind:

    * Remotely controlling media playback on a PC.

    * Remotely controlling a slideshow in a presentation room.

    * Using the Pocket PC screen to create and send handwritten signatures or
    annotations to a PC application.

    * Speeding up repetitive data entry with special user-defined macro keys.

    * Speeding up computer operation with customizable application-specific
    macro keys or shortcut keys.

    * Using a Pocket PC to complement existing input hardware with virtual input
    devices, such as a virtual numeric keypad.

    PPC Tablet 2.0 is also designed with network security in mind. Upon initial
    connection from a Pocket PC device, the Server will prompt the PC user to
    accept or reject the connection. Optionally, the Server can authenticate the
    Windows user name and password supplied by the Client. If the authentication
    is successful, the Server will accept the connection silently. To further
    enhance security over TCP/IP networks, all communication between the Server
    and Client is encrypted with 512-bit RSA cryptography after a connection is
    established. This provides reasonable protection strength for the
    communication, while maintaining good application performance.

    The software comes with five pre-defined profiles: Default Devices, Tablet
    Only, Personal Data, PowerPoint Presentation and Windows Media Player. The
    Default Devices profile includes a touchpad, a tablet and a numeric keypad.
    The Tablet Only profile includes a single tablet. The Personal Data provides
    a set of buttons which users can customize with their own personal
    information to speed up repetitive data entry in electronic forms. The
    PowerPoint Presentation profile includes a set of pre-defined buttons to
    start, stop and navigate through a slide show, as well as a touchpad that
    can navigate the pointer or draw on a PowerPoint presentation. The Windows
    Media Player profile provides a set of buttons to control media playback and
    sound volume in Windows Media Player. All these profiles can be further
    extended by the users based on their individual needs.

    In addition to using pre-defined profiles, users can create their own
    profiles with the Designer. The Designer supports the creation, modification
    and deletion of software-emulated input components, such as key buttons,
    mouse buttons, and navigation areas that can emulate a touchpad or tablet.
    The size, location, label and corresponding action of each input component
    are all customizable and saved into a specified profile.

    PPC Tablet is compatible with all Pocket PC 2003 and Pocket PC 2003 SE
    devices (including VGA-capable units), as well as Pocket PC 2002 devices
    with .NET Compact Framework installed. For more information on the system
    requirements, installation procedure and user instructions, please visit the
