    CUPERTINO, Calif., April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobio Networks today
 announced the release of GetMobio, the first mobile lifestyle portal that
 offers over 50 free applications and widgets on the mobile phone. For the
 first time, anyone can download the GetMobio lifestyle portal at
 http:/ and get instant access to their favorite Web content
 and services right on their mobile phones.
     "Mobile phone users are hungry for mobile applications and content that
 meet their needs, but the challenge is that those needs are constantly
 changing based the individual's current interests, tastes, and
 inclinations," said Ramneek Bhasin, CEO of Mobio. "We built the GetMobio
 lifestyle portal to appeal to a broad range of such varying possibilities,
 to satisfy everyone from fashionistas, to gadget freaks, to soccer moms and
 dads. Whatever you like to do -- it's in there. And just in case it's not,
 we've created publishing tools that let you build your own mobile
 collections on top of the pre-designed Mobio applications."
     GetMobio is a free service that consists of over 50 dynamic
 applications, widgets and RSS feeds. The GetMobio lifestyle portal features
 collections of Web service mash-ups that include the hottest nightclubs,
 restaurants, movies and local events. GetMobio ships with 10 collections
 that range from "After Midnight" to "Outwitting the Kids." Mobio is also
 offering Cricket Center - Live! and Mobio Cricket Center - Fantasy for free
 as part of the US based download.
     "In many cases, additional features on the mobile phone can actually
 lead to a more complicated user experience, which has been shown to inhibit
 the uptake of value added services," said Gene Keenan, VP Mobile Services
 at Isobar and Board Member of the Mobile Marketing Association (MMA). "For
 mobile data services to take off companies need to concentrate on
 streamlining and simplifying the experience and providing the same, rich
 experience people are used to on the Web. Mobio has done just that, by
 developing a solution that increases functionality without overwhelming the
