BEIKS releases LexSpell spelling checker for BlackBerry handhelds

BEIKS releases unlimited LexSpell spell checker for BlackBerry handsets

Dallas (Feb, 2007) -- BEIKS LLC, the world leader in mobile language and reference solutions, today announced the new version 1.5 release of its popular LexSpell spelling checker for BlackBerry® handsets from Research In Motion (Nasdaq: RIMM;). When installed, the spellchecker allows for quick, easy and reliable proofing of outgoing emails or other text.

LexSpell installs on a BlackBerry handset and does not rely on server components or network coverage to perform its functions. It utilizes a proofing technology and lexical databases developed over 10 years, and used by tens of millions of people around the world in desktop, server and mobile applications.

Functionality-wise, the spellchecker offers the standard features one would expect and be familiar with from a desktop equivalent, including seamless integration into most text entry applications on the handset such as email and MemoPad. Users also have the ability to simply click “Spellcheck & Send” from the standard and intuitive interface that will highlight unrecognized words and includes a replacement suggestion list with the ability to expand the stock database with new words. It comes with an editor for user-added vocabulary and more.

LexSpell provides quick and accurate spell checking and offers a unique licensing model.

"Since the beginning there has been a general demand for a spell checker, from our customers and users of the BEIKS dictionaries, for BlackBerry. When our existing LexSpell users started migrating to the BlackBerry platform and requesting the LexSpell proofing tool for it, we knew we had to act. LexSpell for BlackBerry offers a familiar, fast, efficient and cost-effective spellchecking application to our customers for use with their BlackBerry handsets." explained Bobby Kolev, president of BEIKS LLC.

In response to the call for reasonable pricing BEIKS has decided to provide end-users with a fully functional, unlimited application evaluation, leaving the financial decision in the hands of the potential customers themselves.

"We decided to adopt the model used by WinZip®, one of the most popular and successful applications in the desktop world. Users get 100% functional application which does not expire over time. They are kindly invited to register for a modest registration price, but they are not anyhow forced to do so. If they think we have done a good job and the registration fee is fair they would hopefully pay it," explained Mr. Kolev.

The asked registration fee is $10.00 and is only valid for individual users. Enterprise licenses are subject to a different licensing conditions and volume pricing.

BEIKS reserves the right to change the distribution model and registration fee at any given time and without prior notice.

LexSpell is available for immediate download directly to a BlackBerry handset via the mobile web site of the company
