ICT Adds Apple iPhone to "Cannes Project" Voice and Data Platform

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - December 6, 2007) - Innovative Communications Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ICTN) announces the addition of Apple's iPhone to the "Cannes Project" integrated voice and data platform. ICT's selection of the iPhone was based upon the popularity of the product and the user profile. This platform will enable the 1 million iPhones reported sold as of September 26, 2007 to send voice and data between any broadband capable mobile devices, the over 246 million Skpe users and all VoIP carriers without using cellular plan minutes and not requiring a cellular carrier wherever WiFi/WiMAX is present. The "Cannes Project" platform is intended to be a browser-less platform but in the case of the Apple iPhone, ICT will adhere to Apple's requirement to develop applications through the iPhone Safari browser.

"ICT believes through initial research that a proof-of-concept/beta can be achieved within a relatively quick timeframe with further capabilities to follow," said Joel Edwards, Director of Business Development with Innovative Communications Technologies. "The timing is now given the special excitement and popularity surrounding the iPhone and expected cost efficiencies this product will deliver to iPhone users."

The ICT Product Development Group intends this integrated voice and data platform to connect any broadband mobile device, broadband land line or personal computer for free. All other mobile device and landline connections are expected to have the ability to connect at a projected 60% reduced cost over present mobile, VoIP and telecom carriers.
