Charlottesville, VA, June 30, 2005 — Handango, the leading provider of mobile downloads, announced the winners of the annual Handango Champion Awards at an awards ceremony in Miami, Florida on June 23, 2005. Unbound Medicine, the leading provider of healthcare information for PDA, wireless, and Web delivery, won Best Industry Application 2005 for Davis’s Drug Guide with Auto-Updates on Palm OS devices.
The Handango Champion Awards recognize outstanding mobile software developers and applications. Nominated by customers, winners are selected by an elite panel of industry experts and members of the media. The awards ceremony, sponsored by Microsoft, the Microsoft Tablet PC, Nokia and Sony Ericsson, is a highlight of Handango’s partner summit for independent software vendors and leaders in the mobile market.
“We would like to congratulate Unbound Medicine for winning a Champion Award for the second straight year,” said Clint Patterson, vice president of marketing of Handango. “Receiving this award is quite an honor, as winners are chosen by some of the best minds in the mobile industry.”
Unbound Medicine’s Davis’s Drug Guide with Auto-Updates is one of the best-selling titles published in partnership with the F.A. Davis Company. The drug guide is updated automatically when the handheld is synchronized so that the latest FDA approvals appear as they publish. Healthcare providers can quickly track down need-to-know information using intuitive drop down menus and cross-linking.
“We are proud to have our content and the Unbound platform honored by this award," said Rob Craven, CEO of F.A. Davis. "Through our partnership with Unbound Medicine, we know that mobile health professionals are receiving updated, need-to-know information on thousands of brand-name and generic drugs where they need it most – at the point of care.”
“We are delighted to receive the Handango award recognizing the quality and utility of our products,” said Bill Detmer, president and CEO of Unbound Medicine. “It validates our customer-focused mission to provide knowledge where it’s needed.”
