Web2Mobile Launches, Signs Wireless Content Agreements with Associated Press, Thomson Financial And The Sporting News

Formerly Web2PCS, Web2Mobile offers increased support of wireless devices, more content providers

Web2Mobile, formerly known as Web2PCS, today announced the re-launch of its wireless website and enhanced mobile Internet services. To highlight this event, Web2Mobile is also announcing new content agreements with the Associated Press, The Sporting News and Thomson Financial. Mobile users can now visit www.web2mobile.com to find and receive the latest news, sports and stock quotes through their wireless devices, for free.

The name change to Web2Mobile, more accurately reflecting the services provided by the company, also coincides with the opening of MyWeb2Mobile. MyWeb2Mobile gives users the ability to build, manage, and customize Web2Mobile content and applications from the website. Subscribers can choose to be sent alerts of late-breaking news, sports scores as they are updated, or stock prices based on percentage fluctuation, to name a few. At the click of a check box, MyWeb2Mobile is ready to be accessed by the subscriber's wireless Internet enabled device. The Web2Mobile site is the first to provide its subscribers with personalized services for Short Messaging Service (SMS), Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) and the Web through its various services. In addition, Web2Mobile supports most cellular phones, pagers and PDAs.

"Our partnerships with the Associated Press, Thomson Financial and The Sporting News show our commitment to providing comprehensive content and services to our wireless Internet customers," said Arinder Mahal, vice president of Web2Mobile. "These partnerships and the new Web2Mobile website will provide people on the go with greater access to information."

Navigation through the Web2Mobile website has been significantly enhanced. An intuitive design makes customization easier than ever before. The new look and feel, and increased reliability adds to an impressive list of additional services such as triggered stock quotes, real-time game scores and breaking news stories.
