Chalk Launches Version 5.0 of Mobile chalkboard™ at RIM's Wireless Enterprise Symposium and Announces the Filing of 11th Patent

Latest Version of Mobile chalkboard™ Focuses on Giving Power to IT Administrators

ORLANDO, FLORIDA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) - Chalk Media Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CKM) today announced it has launched Version 5.0 of its proprietary mobile communication software Mobile chalkboard™, which enables the rapid creation and secure, tracked deployment of media-rich "pushcasts" to BlackBerry® smartphones.

"Similar and complimentary to the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server strategy, we have added a host of functionality to Mobile chalkboard focused on giving power to the IT administrator", said Jody Glidden, Chief Technology Officer, Chalk. "We have added new compression options and additional options such as controls. For example, it is now possible for an administrator responsible for telecommunication budgets to set data limits for individuals or groups as a safety net - to avoid costly overage charges by carriers."

Substantial authoring enhancements have also been added to this latest release. Using Mobile chalkboard's PowerPoint Add-in, tests and surveys can now be created in a familiar authoring environment. In addition, incorporating video files has been significantly streamlined. Version 5.0 also boasts integrated lead generation capabilities, allowing companies to send content to potential customers and include click-to-call or click-to-email calls to action.

Chalk also announced that it has filed its 11th provisional patent for Mobile chalkboard.
