Under an alliance agreed by the two companies, MSN Mobile will provide the content for the default home page on the Handspring Blazer Web browser. Meanwhile, Blazer users will have access to the MSN MoneyCentral personal finance service, Expedia travel, MSNBC news and weather information.
Blazer connects to the Internet via a modem attached to a Handspring Visor PDA or any other device based on Palm OS version 3.1 or higher.
Microsoft and Handspring will also explore opportunities for future collaboration on smart devices based on Microsoft's emerging .Net platform, a Microsoft statement said.
