TORONTO, Ontario--(CCNMatthews - Nov 7, 2005) -

SilverBirch Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SVB) (SilverBirch) and Ki-Bi™ Mobile Technologies Limited (LSE:KIB) (Ki-Bi) announce today that SilverBirch's wholly owned subsidiary SilverBirch Studios Inc. and Ki-Bi have entered into a mobile content provisioning partnership. Under the terms of the agreement, Ki-Bi will source ringtones, graphics and games from SilverBirch Studio's library of mobile content for its white-labelled mobile content cards.

About Ki-Bi Mobile Technologies Ltd.

Ki-Bi provides innovative technological solutions for physical distribution and marketing of content and applications for mobile handsets. The Company's business model is based upon the sale of electronic content cards ("Cards") and sharing of the revenues from the content distributed through the Cards. As of May 2005, Ki-Bi is publicly traded on AIM in London (LSE:KIB).

Content, such as ringtones, music, video and games for mobile handsets, is currently distributed mainly by over-the-air downloads into handsets, but there are technological, logistic and marketing barriers to traditional physical distribution of such content via retail outlets. Ki-Bi provides a solution for the physical distribution of mobile content based on a combination of proprietary consumer electronics devices and central management server systems.

Ki-Bi's Cards enable flexibility for customization and production in mass volumes, elements which the Directors consider are essential in brand differentiation and content promotion. During the past two years, Ki-Bi has established relationships with global leaders in the mobile market such as Motorola, Ericsson, Orange, O2, Sun Microsystems, Siemens and others.
