cellity Introduces Full E-mail Functionality to Flagship cellity Communicator Application

Turns Most Cellphones Into Feature-Rich Communication Tool

HAMBURG, GERMANY--(Marketwire - June 9, 2008) - cellity AG, provider of mobile communication software applications, today announced it has added full e-mail capability to its successful cellity Communicator cellphone software. Cellphone users can now easily and conveniently send or receive e-mails.

The new beta release of the cellity Communicator is now available as a free download, and includes the key features required for mobile communication in one easy-to-use application -- good news for those who need to conveniently, intuitively and affordably send and receive e-mails using a cellphone. Expensive services such as e-mail push services or BlackBerry contracts are no longer needed thanks to the new e-mail feature.

"Now that accessing the Web is more affordable on mobile devices, the cellity Communicator is paving the way for widespread use of mobile e-mails," said Sarik Weber, founder and member of the cellity Executive Board.

Each user receives his own cellity e-mail address including his name or cellphone number and the cellity domain (name@cellity.com / phonenumber@cellity.com); e-mail forwarding for accessing other e-mail accounts such as Gmail or Yahoo! is already possible. After setting up forwarding, e-mails can still be accessed from your usual e-mail provider. Sending e-mails using your cellphone does not require the e-mail address of the recipient: the e-mail can be sent to the intended recipient's cellphone number. The person you send the e-mail to then receives a freeSMS text message with a URL. With cellity Communicator installed, users can then view the e-mail on their cellphone.

Unlike browser-based e-mail products, cellity Communicator users need only register once when using it for the first time. E-mails are then automatically downloaded and saved to the in-tray of the client software. Messages are automatically line-wrapped to match cellphone displays, doing away with annoying scrolling back and forth. If the program is not open, a free ping call notifies the user about new e-mails in his in-tray. E-mail transfers are encrypted and compressed for optimal transmission.

The cellity Communicator offers the most complete set of services, which makes communicating on the go far easier with free text-messaging, low-cost international calls, easy call conferencing, reliable data backups and now free e-mail. The cellity Communicator turns almost any cellphone into a feature-rich communication tool.

"To put it in the most simple terms, the cellity Communicator turns any conventional cellphone into a smartphone," said Sarik Weber.
