Mobile Movie Times Mashes Up Best Movie Content for Mobile Phones

    CUPERTINO, Calif., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobio Networks today
 announced the availability of Mobile Movie Times, the first mobile
 application that enables moviegoers to find local movie details and buy
 tickets on their handsets in three clicks or less. The free service launch
 is in conjunction with Universal Picture's Nov. 17 release of Let's Go To
     Mobile Movie Times takes the hassle out of watching the hottest new
 films this holiday season by mashing up the Web services needed to get
 movie listings, reviews, maps and buy tickets by phone. Users can quickly
 search, purchase and have their tickets ready and waiting for them when
 they arrive at the theater. Mobile Movie Tickets is the first movie
 application that gives individuals the "tastiest bits of the Web" in three
 clicks or less -- with minimal to no data entry required.
     "Most mobile services are clumsy and counterintuitive because they
 aren't built to recognize the individual's personal preferences or
 location," said Ramneek Bhasin, Founder and CEO of Mobio Networks. "We've
 developed a highly personalized user experience that is tailored to the
 individual's tastes, demographic and geographic information. Unlike other
 mobile services, Mobile Movie Times feels like it knows the user."
     Mobile Movie Times is powered by a proprietary technology called
 Context Synchronized Start (XSS) that imbeds users' preferences, so that
 when they launch the application only the pertinent information is
 displayed based on their profile. XSS also automatically delivers
 synchronized information based on highly relevant factors such as time of
 day and the user's location.
