Challenger Mobile Joins the Google Android Movement

New Google Android-Based Mobile VoIP Platform Extends Innovative Capabilities to Mobile Operators and Service Providers Around the World

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - September 9, 2009) - Challenger Mobile, the white label mobile VoIP technology company that revolutionized the industry by providing mobile phones with an effective mVoIP solution, today announced the launch during the fall of its ground-breaking platform for Google's Android mobile operating system. Challenger Mobile will allow mobile operators, wireless ISPs and related service providers to now deliver mVoIP services to customers switching to Android-based mobile phones, which utilize the innovative operating system developed by one of the tech world's biggest companies -- Google.

As the primary competitor to Apple's iPhone operating system, Google's open source Android mobile operating system is made available at no cost to phone manufacturers including Sony Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, HTC and others. Android allows for a range of different touch-screen cell phones and smartphones to offer the user-friendly experience that is often associated with the iPhone. Android users can navigate their phones with their finger, browse the web, as well as use many familiar Google features like their search engine, YouTube, and Google Maps.

Much like their successful platform on other operating systems, the Challenger Mobile service will provide Android end-users with several free and premium features. These include free internet calls straight from a mobile handset, competitive rates to domestic and international fixed and mobile phones, and call forwarding of VoIP calls to mobile phones.

"An increasing number of manufacturers have released or are in the process of designing Android mobile phones, including giants like HTC, Motorola and Samsung," said Challenger Mobile CEO Christina Sundman. "Even Sony Ericsson is now rumored to be producing their first Android phone. It is only natural that Challenger Mobile offers our proven service for these phones, for both existing and new users around the world."

To date, T-Mobile, one of the largest operators in the world, has sold over one million Android mobiles in the last six months; operators like 3 now sell Android-based phones like the HTC Magic in European markets. As more and more manufacturers release Android phones, mobile operators and service providers can look to the recent convergence of Challenger Mobile technology with the Google Android operating system as a welcome addition to their current line-up of services.
