This press information is already a month old but I have just found it now. OnSpeed, announced the release of OnSpeed for Pocket PC PDA's and smart phones, which allows users to browse the web and use web based E-Mail up to 10 times faster for just £24.99 a year.
Breaking new ground once more, the award winning technology company is the first to offer acceleration software which can be used with Pocket PC, currently the fastest growing mobile sector in the UK. It is a small and easy to install client, taking only two minutes to download and can be used anywhere in the world. The application sits quietly in the background accelerating any internet browsing as required.

OnSpeed works by using compression to reduce the amount of data received and can be used on any Pocket PC internet connection – including GSM, UMTS, 3G and GPRS. Where users are billed per MB download, OnSpeed will have the added benefit of reducing the user's telephone bill by up to 90%.

"This product is the breakthrough that the Pocket PC market has been looking for. We are currently talking to two networks who are very excited at what an up to ten fold increase in speed could do for sales of Pocket PCs. There are over 500,000 Pocket PC users in the UK alone, the majority of which are unhappy with slow connection speeds. By introducing Onspeed for Pocket PC, we are excited to offer an affordable and easy to use solution to their problem", says Jamie True, co-founder of OnSpeed. "We are proud to be the first company to introduce this highly effective service and are confident that it will be a great success."

OnSpeed for Pocket PC has 9 patents and the secret behind its outstanding performance is Content Sensitive Compression (CSC), which is based on a complex series of algorithms that compress and then optimize content by each individual file within a web page, providing a dramatic improvement in access speeds.

£25 per year is heavy stuff and I'm not sure if it accelerates that good on one hand/saves volume on the other hand to reduce my GPRS costs. Has anyone of you tried it already?
