     Tarantella Enterprise 3 software enables the Nokia 9210 Communicator to
 connect to any Microsoft Windows, UNIX, Linux, AS/400 or mainframe application
 over the GSM network at speeds of up to 43.2 kbps. Tarantella software has a
 sophisticated video slicing and scaling technology that enables interaction
 with any enterprise application from any GSM-capable location.
     The patented Adaptive Internet Protocol (AIP) has been further enhanced to
 maximize performance over wireless networks. Enhancements to predictive
 bandwidth allocation and latency optimization provide breakthrough performance
 over wireless media, take advantage of today's High Speed Data (HSCSD)
 capabilities and are ready for tomorrow's GPRS technology.
     Tarantella vice president of marketing Dennis Adams, said, "The
 availability of Tarantella Enterprise 3 software for the new breed of wireless
 devices, such as the Nokia 9210 Communicator, is a major step forward for
 mobile users. This puts in place one of the most crucial pieces of the
 wireless device puzzle -- access to critical enterprise applications. The
 capabilities and simplicity of the modular 3-tier architecture utilized by
 Tarantella Enterprise 3, will spur the rapid penetration of wireless devices
 into large organizations."
     Tarantella will be demonstrating the Nokia 9210 Communicator with
 Tarantella Enterprise 3 software on the Sun booth at CeBIT, Hall 1, Stand 8A2
 (TBC). Hans L. Gerke, Head of Business Development, Sun Microsystems Germany,

 applications. Our partnership with Tarantella enables customers to use today's
 and tomorrow's client devices to gain global access to their applications over
 our scalable wireless infrastructure," concluded Gerke
     The Nokia 9210 Communicator is based on the Symbian platform v6.0.
