Morningstar Inc. has partnered with Pyxis Mobile-a provider of wireless software for the financial services industry-to deliver Morningstar data to fund wholesalers through their mobile devices.
   Under the partnership, Morningstar's mutual fund and exchange-traded fund data will be made available to fund wholesalers who use Pyxis's mWholesaler software. The software gives users the ability to access and analyze the data with handheld wireless devices such as the Blackberry and Windows Mobile-powered devices.
   The program, called Morningstar Mobile for Wholesalers, will be available in May.
   The wireless service will allow wholesalers to access Morningstar's database of 78,000 mutual funds and 700 ETFs.
   "Morningstar Mobile is designed to help increase wholesalers' productivity by untethering them from their desks for investment analytics, allowing them to spend more time in the field visiting clients and prospects," according to a Morningstar press release.
