     The full set of iPAQnet solutions, which includes iPAQnet Mobile Email,
 iPAQnet Mobile Internet, and iPAQnet Mobile Intranet, is now available in the
 U.S. for Compaq Armada notebook PCs.  These solutions build on existing

     In addition, iPAQnet solutions are now available for the iPAQ Pocket PC,
 Armada notebook PC family, and the new Presario 800 notebook PC (see
 http://www.compaq.com/newsroom/pr/2001/index.html ) on the WorldCom high-speed

 anywhere.
     With the fastest wireless Internet access available today, iPAQnet Mobile
 Internet now offers speeds up to 128Kbps -- more than three to four times the
 speed of typical dial-up modem access -- and is available immediately in
 13 key U.S. markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, San Francisco
 and Houston.  For customers who work and travel within the WorldCom network
 coverage area, this network provides the best wireless experience with iPAQnet
 Mobility Solutions.  For customers who need coverage in more areas around the
 U.S., the CDPD network is the recommended solution.  Coverage maps for these
 networks are available at http://www.compaq.com/ipaqnet .
     The new iPAQnet Mobile Internet service includes a Novatel Wireless
 Merlin(TM) Ricochet PC Card and WorldCom's Wireless Internet service, priced
 at $299(a).  Monthly airtime on the WorldCom network is a flat rate of $74.95
 per month for unlimited use on Compaq notebooks and iPAQ Pocket PCs.  The
 iPAQnet Mobility Solution on CDPD includes the Sierra Wireless AirCard 300,
 priced at $399 for the iPAQ Pocket PC.  The AirCard 300 for dual use on the
 iPAQ Pocket PC and Armada is $499.
     Monthly airtime on the CDPD network now starts at $39.95 per month for
 unlimited use of the Internet and Internet email on iPAQ Pocket PCs -- a
 33 percent price reduction.  Customers who want to access Microsoft
 Exchange-based email, access web-based applications that run behind the
 firewall, or perform other more advanced functions on the iPAQ Pocket PC or
 the Armada notebook PC can have unlimited access to the CDPD network for
 $59.95 a month with no roaming charges in the U.S.  Customers wishing to use
 both the iPAQ Pocket PC and Armada notebooks interchangeably can have
 unlimited use of the CDPD network for $89.95 a month.
 
     New Deployment and Support Services for iPAQnet Mobility Solutions
     Compaq announced new assistance services for customers deploying iPAQnet
 Mobile Email and iPAQnet Mobile Intranet.  These include installation and
 orientation services, along with software support and user application support
 services.  iPAQnet Mobile Email and iPAQnet Mobile Intranet solutions provide

 applications while away from the office and roaming nationwide.  Available
 beginning in June in the U.S., these new services help customers get up and
 running with iPAQnet solutions, provide onsite software installation support
 and technical orientation services, and deliver ongoing technical and end-user
 support for these installations.
     Compaq now provides full end-to-end wireless solutions to its customers,
 including award-winning client and server hardware, client/server software,
 monthly airtime services, Internet content, and complete hardware and software
 support services.
 
     New Wireless Local Area Networking Line-up
     Compaq unveiled a complete end-to-end wireless local area networking
 (WLAN) solution that offers the broadest range of wireless access points,
 network interface cards and accessories specifically tailored to address
 in-building wireless data access for enterprise, small to medium business, and
 small office or home office users.
     The new 11Mbps(b) wireless LAN client products -- the WL110 PC Card
 ($159), WL210 PCI Adapter ($199) and WL215 Universal Serial Bus (USB) ($169)
 -- provide network connectivity and performance similar to wired LAN access
 for Compaq notebooks, desktops (including the iPAQ Desktop), and the popular
 iPAQ Pocket PC.
     To address a full range of wireless LAN infrastructure requirements, the
 line-up includes a choice of two wireless LAN access points.  The fully
 featured Compaq WL410 Wireless SMB Access Point ($699) offers a cost-effective
 solution for most mid-sized business wireless LAN needs.  The Compaq WL510
 Wireless Enterprise Access Point, with its dual-radio PC Card slot design, is
 ideal for customers requiring a high-capacity, bandwidth-intensive wireless
 network solution.  Priced at $999, the WL510 also includes one Compaq WL110 PC
 Card.
     Both access points can accept power from a local AC outlet or power
 supplied over the Ethernet cable.  This new wireless LAN offering provides
 high-speed, secure wireless access to vital network resources using Wi-Fi(TM)
 (Wireless Fidelity) technology -- the IEEE 802.11b HR Industry Standard.
 These solutions are Wi-Fi certified and offer 128-bit Wired Equivalent Privacy
 (WEP) encryption for enhanced security.
     For wireless networking and sharing Internet access among multiple PCs in
 a small office or home office, Compaq offers the WL310 Home Office Gateway.
 Priced at $369, the WL310 features 64-bit WEP encryption, a built-in V.90
 modem and Ethernet port for direct connection to either an ADSL or cable
 modem.
     To enhance the performance of the new WLAN products, Compaq offers
 accessories to maximize coverage while providing cost-effective deployment of
 a WLAN solution.  New accessories include a six- or twelve-port rack mount
 Power Over Ethernet remote power supply that uses the capacity of the Ethernet
 cable to deliver power directly to the access point, an alternative to
 installing a local AC power source at every access point location.  Compaq
 also offers a range extender antenna to maximize coverage and flexibility for
 the installation of access points and fixed wireless PC platforms.  For more
 information, please see
 http://www.compaq.com/products/wireless/wlan/index.html .
 
     New Wireless LAN Assessment and Infrastructure Services
     To complement the enhanced WLAN technology, Compaq Global Services
 introduced comprehensive WLAN Service offerings to assist customers with large
 or complex WLAN design, installation and fine-tuning.
     Compaq WLAN Site Assessment Service surveys customers' work environments,
 producing a detailed assessment report that documents prerequisites for a
 smooth implementation of a wireless LAN, a wireless network planning chart and
 equipment list.  An onsite consultation with a Global Services Specialist is
 also included.
     Based on the findings of the WLAN assessment report, Compaq WLAN
 Installation and Startup Service will provide the physical installation of the
 wireless communications infrastructure, including the physical installation of
 the wireless solution, coordination and setup of any new equipment and needed
 modifications or reconfigurations, migration of user applications and data to
 the mobile clients, and connectivity testing of the entire WLAN network.
     In addition, orientation is provided to the customer's users about the

 conversion software.  The iPAQ BlackBerry Wireless Email Solution --
 innovative handheld and wearable devices, along with complete server and
 service packages -- provides remote wireless email access to text messages
 from almost anywhere in the U.S.
     Now, when a customer receives an email with an attachment, they can
 forward the email to a designated email address and the server will recognize
 it as a request to convert the attachment to text.  Once converted, the
 content of the attachment is sent back to the user as a text message.  The
 attachments can also be printed to a fax machine.  METAmessage for Wireless is
 available as an Application Solution Provider (ASP) service and as enterprise

 and modularity through Expansion Packs, allowing customers to use a variety of
 devices with their iPAQ Pocket PC to suit their individual needs.  The PC Card
 Expansion Pack, for example, enables customers to use a wide variety of
