Roomlinx Announces Closing of $2.5 Million Equity Financing

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - August 5, 2008) - Roomlinx, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: RMLX), the hospitality in-room expert providing Internet-based Media, Entertainment & Business solutions, today announced the closing of a $2.5 million equity financing. The Investors purchased Convertible Preferred Shares, which are convertible at $.025, and received warrants to purchase additional shares. The Convertible Preferred Shares automatically will convert to Common Shares once the company is current on its SEC filings and has sufficient shares of Common Stock available for issuance.

Funds will be used primarily to increase Roomlinx' footprint of its interactive, in-room Media, Entertainment & Business solution within the hospitality, resort, and timeshare industries. In July, Roomlinx filed its Form 10-KSB for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006 with the Securities Exchange Commission on the SEC EDGAR online site. This filing represents the completion of a significant milestone by the Company toward its commitment to bringing all SEC filings current.

"This investment substantiates what we have been hearing from experts in the hospitality technology arena namely, that Roomlinx offers the technology of the future. It's an evolutionary system that reinvents itself based on market and demographic demands. More importantly, we have a tremendous opportunity in front of us to be the leader in this space," said Michael Wasik, Roomlinx CEO.

As part of the transaction Roomlinx Chairman Peter Bordes will transition from the Board of Directors to an advisory role and Herbert Hunt will resign from the Board. The Company thanks the departing Board members and welcomes Judson Just, CFA, and Christopher Blisard, as new members of the Board.

"I am very impressed with the level of knowledge and experience the new investors and Board members bring to the table," said Bordes. "They have a proven track record of growing companies and will be able to dedicate more time than I am able to. I am happy to transition to an advisory role and will continue to support Roomlinx; there is something very special here."

"I am happy to have served as a Board member since 2001, but also know I cannot dedicate the time needed to take it to the next level," said Hunt. "I am happy to hand over the reins to some very dedicated, talented, and passionate individuals."

The Kessler Collection recently signed a five-year agreement with Roomlinx to install both its In-Room Media, Entertainment & Business solution and High-Speed Internet Access application in all new Kessler Collection hotels moving forward. The Kessler Collection is a portfolio of boutique four- and five-diamond quality hotels, spas and art galleries located in Florida, Georgia, Colorado, New Mexico, and Vienna.

Roomlinx also recently entered a five year agreement to provide its Media, Entertainment, and Business solution to select guestrooms in the Country Inn & Suites, Merrilville, IN.
