Internet software company Spy-glass has developed an application that allows users to link to the Internet from non-computer devices more effectively.
The software converts standard web pages into a format that is more usable by devices such as telephones, when they are connected to the Internet.
The company has already done a deal with US telecoms supplier GTE to incorporate the product into enhanced display telephones for a 1,000 customer trial next year.
Spyglass described the product, Prism, as a "proxy-based dynamic content conversion solution". It is intended to address the issue of slow performance and readability of web pages when displayed on small screens, such as those in phones, faxes and other appliances.
Acting as a proxy server, it downloads the web page requested by the device user and then converts it to the format and size the device demands.
Other companies looking at the Prism technology include IBM, Xerox and mobile phone firms.
Analysts believe that technologies such as Prism, if proven, could help take the Internet beyond the desktop.
As the news broke, Spyglass shares gained 13% to close at $9.75. Financial analysts said the new software could be the lift Spyglass needs to climb out of the red. The company has posted a loss in two of the last three quarters after changing its strategy to focus on emerging Internet products.
Company officials said they expected to be back in the black by autumn next year.
