Mobio Launches GetMobio Lifestyle Portal for BlackBerry Smartphone Customers Across All Major U.S. Carriers

    CUPERTINO, Calif., June 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobio Networks today
 announced that it has launched BlackBerry support for smartphones from
 Research In Motion (RIM) across major U.S. carriers. BlackBerry users can
 enjoy all of Mobio's widgets and applications within the GetMobio mobile
 lifestyle portal, a collection of over 50 web service mash-ups that include
 the hottest nightclubs, restaurants and local events. With Mobio's latest
 widget, Cheap Gas, BlackBerry users can find the lowest cost gas stations
 near any location and even filter search results by brand right on the
 handset.
     "BlackBerry has become the leading wireless connectivity solution for
 millions of users who value a sleek, performance-driven experience based on
 the convenience and power built into the smartphone design," said Marcia
 Kadanoff, Vice President of Marketing at Mobio. "We're thrilled to offer
 the fun and functionality of the GetMobio mobile lifestyle portal to the
 BlackBerry community, which has already demonstrated a strong desire to use
 mobile technology in integrated and innovative new ways."
     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 on the market, such as the Motorola RAZR, to more sophisticated
 smartphone models and interfaces including the BlackBerry Pearl. By simply
 entering their information once, users can personalize their experience
 across all GetMobio collections to create a more intuitive, seamless
 interaction.
     BlackBerry users can point their browsers to http://getmobio.com/nowbb
 to download the GetMobio lifestyle portal.
     In January, Mobio was selected from thousands of innovators to launch
 its GetMobio mobile lifestyle portal at the DEMO 2007 conference. Following
 the launch, Business 2.0 Magazine called Mobio one of the hottest start-ups
 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
 Magazine called Mobio one of "Ten Companies to Watch in 2007."
