"Espial today announced a new integrated business model to enable the rapid growth of the Pervasive Internet. This industry-collaborative model spans horizontal application and content service developers, service-ready smart device OEMs, and service providers delivering services to all types of emerging information appliances. Espial's vision serves as a catalyst to enable billions of Internet users to access highly personalized services through a variety of smart devices, i.e., the emergence of the Pervasive Internet, and mass-market access to `my data, my way."

"To enable the key communities needed for the Pervasive Internet, the company is expanding each of three development initiatives. First, Espial is enhancing its already-successful client-based software, Espial DeviceTop, its core applications and support tools for the smart device community. Second, the company is increasing its support for the collaborative developer portal site, devicetop.com, now serving thousands of smart device service developers. Finally, Espial will complete its portfolio of offerings for end-to-end service delivery by launching DeviceServer, its server-based software suite for service providers who are adding smart device application and content services for existing and new subscriber bases."
