New Streaming Navigation Patent Claims 'Big Data' for 'Little Devices'
Survol Interactive Technologies says its newly patented streaming navigation technology breaks down one of the primary barriers to mass adoption of wireless internet devices by dramatically improving subscriber ease-of-use.
Patent #6,496,842 enables the streaming of information menus continuously across the screen of Java, Pocket PC and Palm wireless phones and devices, says the company, continuing, "Wireless data streams to the user's device in advance of navigation to create an experience that is faster and easier than today's cumbersome 'click-and-wait' wireless browsers."
Survol has incorporated Streaming Navigation into its flagship FliteMap family of products for mobile phone handsets and PDAs.
It says FliteMap promotes the optimal use of such devices by enabling, "big data for little devices" with limited bandwidth capabilities.
"FliteMap users are able to quickly locate and access the information or wireless services they need without getting lost, while service and content providers can deliver large-data applications to mobile handsets and PDAs," it states.
