The Tapwave Zodiac mobile entertainment console, its accessories and games were rolled out in all 227 CompUSA stores today. The Zodiac will be placed in the mobile computing section of the CompUSA stores. Along with the Tapwave Zodiac being available at retail, it will also be available on CompUSA's website (www.compusa.com). According to David Wenning, VP of Sales for Tapwave, "CompUSA's focus on mobile computing technologies made them a great partner to bring this exciting new Palm-Powered entertainment system to consumers across the country. Now consumers will be able to experience first hand the brilliant high-resolution display, amazing half-VGA graphics performance, rich stereo sound, and the multimedia power of the Zodiac mobile entertainment console."

"This is a new and exciting technology merging the benefits of the Palm-based PDA with an extremely well presented gaming platform that is sure to please the PDA user and avid portable gamer as well," commented Nate Mallad, buyer for CompUSA. "Gaming on a handheld device has just taken a giant leap forward, and movie watchers will love the Zodiac's ability to present full-motion video and stereo sound."

Beyond purchasing the Tapwave Zodiac at CompUSA, consumers can now pick up the latest Zodiac accessories and popular Zodiac game cards, such as Activision's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater(R) 4 and Midway's SpyHunter(R).
