Mobio Chooses GlobalLogic as Its Preferred Software Development Partner

Mobio Movies Is the Newest Mash-Up Co-Developed for the GetMobio Portal

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - December 17, 2007) - Mobio Networks, Inc. has chosen GlobalLogic, Inc., the leader in global product development with more than 140 technology partnerships, as its preferred development partner. The two companies have already co-developed several popular applications for Mobio's GetMobio Lifestyle Portal. One of its most recent offerings is Mobio Movies, a free application that lets users check movie showtimes, read reviews and buy movie tickets from their mobile phones.

"GlobalLogic is an expert in mobile development in general and location-based services in particular -- but that's not the only reason we chose it as our preferred development partner," said Sanjeev Sardana, co-founder and vice president of products at Mobio. "We've built a very strong relationship with our team of remote GlobalLogic engineers thanks to the company's transparent work process. Getting products to market rapidly is vital in our business and, working with GlobalLogic, we are able to bring our products to market at a much faster pace than we ever could on our own."

Mobio provides infrastructure and content development services to customers and partners who need to offer mobile applications and custom portals to their customer base. Mobio has partnered with GlobalLogic to develop multiple consumer applications that include location-based services, such as its events and restaurant finder. Mobio Movies is one of the latest applications the two companies have co-developed. 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."

Peter Harrison, chief executive officer of GlobalLogic, added: "Time-to-market is a huge concern for software product companies, and market pressure is especially intense in vibrant sectors like web 2.0 and mobile applications. GlobalLogic's experienced software R&D engineers, partnering with our clients using a virtual subsidiary model, give start-ups and established technology companies an added advantage by enabling them to launch products on the market in record time."

Mobile application development is one of GlobalLogic's areas of expertise. Its more than 300 mobile software R&D engineers have partnered closely with clients to develop applications on all standard mobile platforms for hundreds of devices.
