Bitstream Inc. (NASDAQ: BITS), announced today the commercial availability of BOLTTM 1.5, the fastest mobile Web browser for mobile phones of all types. After eight months of testing that saw previous versions of BOLT downloaded millions of times all around the world, Bitstream unleashed today the fastest, most fully-featured mobile browser available anywhere. The new BOLT 1.5 mobile browser is free to download to your mobile phone from http://boltbrowser.com, bringing desktop-style Web browsing to mobile phones of all types.

ESPN on BOLTFrom simple cell phones to BlackBerry smartphones, BOLT delivers advanced browsing features like the ability to zoom in and out of Web pages, cut and paste text from a Web page, adjust the viewing magnification up to four times the normal size, post videos and photos to your favorite websites and even stream videos from popular sites like YouTube and MySpace.

“The browser on my mobile phone was terrible,” said Josh, a high school student in Southern California. “I hated using it because it was slow and it forced me to look at mobile versions of websites that didn’t show all of the features and details of the site that I wanted to see. BOLT gives me the full website, just like my brother has on his iPhone, but I can watch videos, instant message my friends on Facebook and see the Web I want to see, without having to use my computer. BOLT is awesome!”

“We know painfully slow mobile browsing speeds are one of the biggest discouragements for people who want to surf the Web from their phones,” says Anna Chagnon, Bitstream CEO. “We designed BOLT with the average user in mind, and focused on fixing the issues where mobile browsing fell short in the user’s experience. BOLT delivered from day one with industry leading speed and a feature set that people couldn’t previously get on a regular mobile phone. And with our commercial launch today we’ve raised that bar even higher, bringing more speed and a feature set that users are going to love.”
