TealPoint Strikes Back with TealWheel, A New Spin on TealOS

San Rafael, CA, July 17, 2009 -- TealPoint Software(TM), the leading developer of business and consumer applications for Palm(TM) connected organizers, announced today the release of TealWheel(TM) version 1.61 for Palm OS(R) handhelds. Like the Wave Launcher in TealOS and webOS, TealWheel gives you instant access to your applications, but with a supercharged new spin that makes traditional launchers almost obsolete. With five separate wheels, each with twelve customizable icons each, you'll almost never need to return to a full launcher again. Each icon is programmable to launch your choice of applications, perform special functions, or act as an automatically updated history list. TealWheel fully supports operation both by stylus and 5-way navigator. With all this power and flexibility, TealWheel is not just evolutionary, it's revolutionary. TealWheel retails for $9.95. Availability is immediate on the TealPoint Software web site at www.tealpoint.com, and other Internet sites.

"While we were of course very sad to have to say goodbye to TealOS, our experience with it really got us thinking about how mimicking the webOS interface was ultimately holding us back," said Vince Lee, President of TealPoint Software. "Our customers found the card-based interface of TealOS novel, but perhaps not the best interface for PalmOS devices. Instead, they told us they wanted something faster--like the wave launcher--but with more power and flexibility. When we had to stop developing TealOS, we started to run with that idea, and we're proud to announce TealWheel as the result."
