    CUPERTINO, Calif., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobio Networks today
 announced that it has launched the GetMobio lifestyle portal for Windows
 Mobile smart phone users across major U.S. carriers. Windows Mobile users
 can enjoy all the Mobio widgets and applications with GetMobio, 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, Windows Mobile users can find the lowest cost gas stations near any
 location and even filter search results by brand right on the handset.
     "Windows Mobile has long been the leading wireless connectivity
 solution for hundreds of thousands of business users because it enables
 them to remain highly productive on the go," said Marcia Kadanoff, Vice
 President of Marketing at Mobio. "Today's functions such as e-mail and
 browsing the Internet have become integral parts of non-professional
 lifestyle needs as well, so we're seeing a large number of consumers
 selecting Windows Mobile for personal usage. We're pleased to offer all
 Windows Mobile customers the fun and functionality of the GetMobio mobile
 lifestyle portal on their favorite devices."
     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
 smart phone 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
     Windows Mobile users can point their browsers to 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." In October,
 GetMobio received FierceMobileContent's Top App Award and was named one of
 the best wireless applications of 2007.
