    ATLANTA, March 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AT&T Inc. (NYSE:   T) today
 introduced a fully hosted, on-demand and comprehensive GPS-based
 workforce-management solution for business customers, TeleNav Track(TM)
 from TeleNav, Inc.
     TeleNav Track is an affordable enterprise-grade application for
 companies of all sizes and includes multiple features, such as GPS-enabled
 location- tracking, mileage-tracking, wireless time sheets, alerts and
 detailed location-reporting to capture field data. A premium version of
 TeleNav Track is also available with features including wireless forms,
 dispatching, barcode- scanning support and voice and on-screen turn-by-turn
 GPS directions. Initially, TeleNav Track is available on the new
 BlackBerry(R) 8800 and HP iPAQ hw6920 Mobile Communicator, both of which
 have integrated GPS. TeleNav Track also offers enterprise organizations the
 option of full integration with back-office systems using Web services
 application programming interface (API) and other connectors.
     "In today's competitive marketplace, companies with employees in the
 field need tools that will assist them in maximizing the productivity of
 their mobile workforces," said Jeff Bradley, vice president of AT&T
 Wireless Business Data Services. "TeleNav Track from AT&T is a powerful,
 yet economical and easy-to-use, wireless location-based services (LBS)
 solution with a wide range of capabilities that help our customers operate
 more efficiently, eliminate paperwork and provide a higher level of service
 to their clients."
     "TeleNav Track is an easy-to-use GPS solution that organizations of all
 sizes and in all industries can take advantage of to improve operations,"
 said Dr. H.P. Jin, TeleNav president, CEO and co-founder. "We have
 developed TeleNav Track to meet the needs of all types of businesses and to
 leverage wireless technology that organizations already depend on for
 excellence in communications. Now, AT&T business and government wireless
 customers have the ability to maximize their mobile services even further."
     With TeleNav Track, managers and dispatchers use a Web-based interface
 to see where their mobile workers are, assign new jobs based on their
 location, provide accurate estimated time of arrival and keep record of
 customer visits. Workers in the field can easily capture data on job tasks
 and use their mobile device as a time card - clocking in and out of work
 without having to go to the office.
     Customers using the BlackBerry 8800 can also couple TeleNav Track with
 AT&T's innovative Push To Talk service to provide their mobile employees
 with a complete wireless voice and data solution. AT&T boasts the largest
 Push To Talk network in America, and its PTT service includes several
 differentiating features, including availability icons, quick group-calling
 and the ability to easily switch from a PTT session to a regular wireless
 voice call.
     TeleNav Track is available now directly from AT&T's wireless
 business-to- business sales force. There are two monthly subscription
 plans. The entry- level TeleNav Track service plan, TeleNav Track Plus, is
 $12.99 per device; the TeleNav Track Premium service plan is $21.99 per
 device. There also is a one-time setup fee of $19.99 for each subscriber.
 An AT&T data plan is also required. Unlimited AT&T Push to Talk service is
