Chalk Software to Run on BlackBerry® Smartphones

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 14, 2007 -- Chalk Media Corp. (TSX-V: CKM) today announced that it has developed a mobile version of its chalkboard™ online training software to work on the BlackBerry® wireless platform from Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM) (TSX: RIM). The software enables the rapid creation of media-rich and enterprise-controlled mobile content that can be pushed securely to wireless handheld devices and tracked.

Chalk introduced its new mobile software at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium 2007 held May 8-10 in Orlando.

"We have had a lot of interest in our new software from Fortune 1000 companies and government agencies attending the Wireless Enterprise Symposium," said Stewart Walchli, President and CEO of Chalk. "The software works with the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server and allows corporations, government agencies and other organizations worldwide to prepare a full array of content and to deliver that content to users on their BlackBerry smartphone. Video, audio, animation, text and graphics can be pushed to the user in a highly secure environment, and the software tracks the viewing of the content by each recipient and reports the details back through the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server.

"This is a significant development for Chalk," said Mr. Walchli. "The ability to deliver content to users on the BlackBerry® platform creates great opportunities for us. Further, we are expanding our business beyond the delivery of training materials to the delivery of any type of corporate and government content."

"Enterprises are looking for solutions that can make it easier to support users in the field. Leveraging the BlackBerry platform's secure delivery capabilities, Chalk's new mobile content deployment system enables enterprises to provide and manage content such as training videos that can be conveniently played by users on their multimedia-enabled BlackBerry smartphones," said Jeff McDowell, Vice President, Global Alliances, Research In Motion.
