Relationship Will Advance Delivery of Real World Directions Via Mobile Phones

Go2 Systems Inc., the originator of Go2™, the first global addressing and locator system for the Internet and portable devices, has joined the Phone.com™ (Nasdaq: PHCM) Alliance Program as an Internet content provider. This relationship, representing the integration of the Internet and wireless technology, is designed to empower mobile phone subscribers to find and instantly obtain turn-by-turn directions and other information to real world businesses using mobile phones equipped with Phone.com's UP.Browser™ microbrowser.

Go2 Systems will provide subscribers with access to location-based Web sites, such as Go2restaurants.com, Go2atms.com and Go2hotels.com. Go2 currently has over 300 topic-specific Web sites in operation with more than 2,000 planned. Go2's sites will soon be operational with the wireless application protocol (WAP), an open global specification enabling access to information and services using wireless devices, and will allow mobile users to automatically obtain the most relevant local merchant information such as directions, store hours, specials and other details, such as where to park.

"Go2's patented technology is designed specifically for devices with limited key pads, storage, bandwidth and display space, such as mobile phones, and provides a compelling user interface for portable devices," said Lee Hancock, founder and president of Go2 Systems Inc. "Using Phone.com's UP.Browser, subscribers can easily retrieve Go2's location-based information and services from Web-enabled wireless phones."

"Go2's technology represents a simple and intuitive way to reference real world locations via the Internet using mobile phones," said Kathy Simpson, director of developer marketing for Phone.com. "With Go2's user-friendly system, carriers using Phone.com's UP.Link Platform are able to provide true added value to subscribers."
