Amiga® To Provide Content For Next Generation Windows CE .NET-Based Devices

Amiga Games and Productivity Applications Will Target Windows CE .NET

San Francisco, CA - March 12, 2002 - Amiga, Inc. announced the release and distribution of Amiga applications targeted at the Microsoft Windows CE .NET operating system. The applications will run on any of the range of Windows CE .NET-based devices including handhelds, smart phones, web pads, and set-top boxes.

Amiga has a rich history of gaming and multimedia and has been delivering rich, compelling applications since 1985. The new breed of Amiga applications have been written to run on the entire range of Windows Powered products including PDA's, Cell Phones, and Set Top Boxes. Amiga provides a middleware portability layer, which allows Amiga applications to be written once and run across a range of Windows Powered devices without change. More than 100 applications will be made available initially and many more are being created by Amiga developers worldwide.

"We are pleased to be able to deliver content that is optimized to run on the Windows CE .NET Platform", said Bill McEwen President/CEO of Amiga Inc. "Amiga developers are world renowned for their abilities to create amazing multimedia content with a small footprint. This gives us the ability to deliver a robust and exciting experience for even the smallest devices."

"As the number and variety of small- footprint and mobile Windows Powered devices continues to grow, ISVs want to ensure that their applications are able to run on as many of these different devices as possible," said Keith White, senior director of marketing for the Embedded and Appliance Platforms Group at Microsoft Corp. "Amiga Anywhere enables application developers to easily take advantage of the rich application and multimedia support in Windows CE .NET to write gaming applications that will run on a broad range of smart Windows Powered devices."

Amiga for Windows Powered Products is expected to ship in April this year. More information can be found on the Amiga Anywhere web site at the Amiga-Anywhere Website.
