CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobio Networks today
announced a revamped GetMobio lifestyle portal. Since the beta version
release during early 2007, Mobio has aggregated user feedback to create a
sleeker interface, several new apps, and the ability to customize
navigation for a personalized experience. Users can now enjoy existing
Mobio applications such as Cheap Gas or explore fun new apps including
Trivia, Movies and Weather -- all for free using GetMobio.
"We've worked closely with our customers to create a new-and-improved
user experience that is both graphically pleasing and simple to navigate,
without compromising the functionality needed on the small screen," said
Ramneek Bhasin, CEO at Mobio. "Not only have we redesigned the interface,
but we've enhanced the performance and functionality to include more
transactional capabilities, such as easy ticket purchasing. Users can
download the GetMobio lifestyle portal and get instant access to their
favorite Web content and brands, as well as tailor new services right on
their mobile phones."
Mobio's applications are created to meet the needs of a broad spectrum
of users -- from those using the most popular and widely available mobile
phones, such as the Motorola KRZR, to more sophisticated smart phone models
and interfaces including the BlackBerry Pearl and Curve. By simply entering
their information once, users can personalize their experience across all
GetMobio collections to create a more intuitive, seamless interaction.
The GetMobio lifestyle portal includes:
-- Trivia -- Play trivia games in categories such as TV, sports and film
-- Weather -- Get the latest weather info and forecasts on your handset
-- Movies -- Get movie show times, read reviews and buy tickets
-- Cheap Gas -- Find the cheapest gas near you...right from your mobile
-- Communities -- Enjoy your favorite online communities such as Twitter
-- RSS Feeds -- Decide which RSS feeds you want to read on your handset in
a flexible viewing style

to watch in its "Next Net 25" of 2007 and IDC named Mobio one of its "10
Emerging Wireless Entertainment Players to Watch in 2007." In April, LAPTOP
