A software company based in Mountain View, California. Products released in 1994 after four years in development include: Telescript – a communications-oriented programming language; Magic Cap – an OOPS designed for PDAs; and a new, third generation GUI. Motorola’s Envoy, due for release in the third quarter of 1994, will use Magic Cap as its OS.
What PostScript did for cross-platform, device-independent documents, Telescript aims to do for cross-platform, network-independent messaging. Telescript protects programmers from many of the complexities of network protocols.
Competitors for Magic Cap include Microsoft’s Windows for Pens/Winpad, PenPoint, Apple Computer’s Newton Intelligence and GEOS by GeoWorks.
