<p>SYDNEY, Australia, 10 May 10, 2005. Recently at the CTIA Show in New Orleans, Brightpoint Inc announced a partnership with Microsoft, whereby Brightpoint and Microsoft would jointly market and promote Windows Mobile Platforms. Aligning with this global direction, Brightpoint Australia will focus its efforts solely on Microsoft and Symbian-based connected devices in the future. This will mean that Brightpoint’s current relationship with PalmOne will end 31 May 2005.</p>
<p>According to Brightpoint’s General Manager, Felix Wong, one of the key factors in Brightpoint’s success has been its commitment to keeping abreast of emerging trends and technologies.</p>

This in turn creates the best opportunities for our customers,” said Mr Felix Wong.</p>
