AOL grips Palm for tix

User can use handheld device for tix

Palm Pilot said Tuesday that, through a deal inked with AOL Moviefone, users of the handheld device will now be able to acquire movie tickets.

AOL Moviefone, a nationwide movie listing guide and ticketing service, has upped its agreement with Palm Inc., which previously dished out movie listings.

“We are committed to providing movie information and tickets to consumers anywhere and anytime and on any platform with the ease that they have become accustomed to with AOL Moviefone and Moviefone.com,” said Andrew Jarecki, CEO of AOL Moviefone. “Our relationship with Palm reinforces the ‘AOL Anywhere’ strategy by making convenient information and commerce service available to on-the-go movie fans.”

AOL’s Moviefone service will be automatically included on future handhelds using the Palm.Net Wireless Communication Service.

Currently, Palm VII device users are able to download Web clippings of movie listings, synopses and theater directions (through AOL partner Mapquest).

AOL Moviefone’s enhanced service will also be available for Palm V users through OmniSky wireless Internet service.

With Palm’s assistance, Sony Electronics will soon enter the ever-expanding wireless and handheld arena by releasing its own branded handheld PDA that runs Palm’s operating system with Sony’s “memory stick” technology built in. Consumers were offered a first glimpse of the device on Tuesday at the PC Expo in Gotham.
