Three new PowerCAD CE 5.2 versions � PowerCAD CE Viewer�, PowerCAD CE Classic�, and PowerCAD CE Professional�, feature numerous breakthroughs in mobile CAD technology, enabling companies to save time, improve customer service and increase profits by being able to view, markup, and create precise AutoCAD� compatible 2 and 3-dimensional designs and digital blueprints in the field or on the shop floor using the latest mobile/wireless handheld computing devices from leading vendors such as HP, Dell, T-Mobile and Rockwell Automation.

�PowerCAD CE is exactly what the Pocket PC was made for�, said Robert Horn of Into Design Group, a trade show and interior design consulting company located in West Jordan, Utah. �Ever since we got it, we have not had to work on our desktop computers at all. We can start drawings from scratch on-site and keep working on them in the car, the couch � anywhere. We tried all the other mobile CAD systems, but PowerCAD CE, in our opinion, is the only true CAD program for the Pocket PC.�
