FunMail's Wallpaper Universe Still Sizzling in Verizon Wireless' #1 Spot

Hugely Popular Wallpaper Application Remains Top Revenue Generator in Category

PLEASANTON, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 14, 2005 -- FunMail's Wallpaper Universe service remained in the #1 spot for Verizon Wireless wallpaper, according to a recent press release from Verizon Wireless: "Verizon Wireless' Get It Now® Service Sizzles." Verizon Wireless, which periodically releases "Top Ten" lists per category, orders application in order of the revenue they generate, and noted that Wallpaper Universe remains their top wallpaper revenue generator.

"We're very proud of these results," said FunMail VP, Sales and Marketing, Andy Baldocchi. "The FunMail team works hard to create a great service, and it's gratifying to see the overwhelmingly positive market response."

Wallpaper Universe has long been a favorite of Verizon Wireless subscribers, who use the service to modify the images that appear on their mobile phone screens.

FunMail senior management and founders have deep experience building interactive digital rendering technologies, giving Wallpaper Universe a market edge. Unique features include personalized wallpaper allowing consumers to enter their names, and "smart cropping" which frames the area of interest in a wallpaper for pixel-perfect image composition. FunMail has two patents pending for their unique wallpaper technology, and also maintains a policy of covering 100% of all addressable handsets to maximize revenue.

Additionally, FunMail offers Open Mobile Media Formats, which lets content providers "stock" their own wallpaper galaxies within Wallpaper Universe.

Wallpaper Universe is available on Verizon Wireless under the "Get Pix - > Wallpaper" section of the application deck.
