On June 4, 2010 Mobile Data Corp. was accepted by Research In Motion (RIM) as a BlackBerry Alliance Select Application Development Member. This Alliance provides MDC with a host of benefits on a technical, marketing and sales basis that will further the Company's business plan rapidly.

On Wednesday June 9, 2010 Mobile Data Corp. successfully launched the MDC-Tracker on its website www.mobiledatacorp.com. The MDC-Tracker software is presently available for installation on the BlackBerry Storm 2 (9550) and is priced $4.99. The Company is advancing the MDC-Tracker to allow the software to be compatible with all of RIM's BlackBerry models.
