Editors Note: A photo and video are included with this press release.

Amika Mobile, a leading provider of emergency alerting solutions via WiFi, SMS, Email and Voice, announces that it has won Silver and Bright Star Awards(TM) from MobileVillage(R), a leader in market development and news services about mobile technologies.

The annual Mobile Star Awards(TM) program honors and promotes top companies, products, deployments, and leaders in mobile and wireless technology. Winners are chosen by Go Mobile(R), MobileVillage's subscribers who are technology executives, mobile professionals, IT managers, developers, and top technology journalists.

Amika Mobile was recognized in the Enterprise software category with two awards for its Amika Mobility Server Emergency Alerting Solution and for its Email-to-SMS critical content alerting solution available at http://www.amikamobile.net/.

"Despite the economic slowdown, recent studies have predicted minimal impact on the mobile and wireless industry," says MobileVillage Editor Gary Thayer. "People have fallen in love with mobile productivity and entertainment products, and there's a real desire to discover and share the latest and greatest. This year we had a record number of votes from MobileVillage readers who are eager to share their knowledge."

"We are honored to receive these awards and are excited by our WiFi and SMS emergency alerting solution which is a one of a kind in alerting people while mobile and potentially saving their lives. We are seeing global market pull in regions requiring early warning systems and in the US where tragedies such as Virginia Tech and Illinois sadden us all and force us to think outside the box." Said Dr. Sue Abu-Hakima, Amika Mobile's President & CEO.
