m-Wise Selected by News International to Expand Daily Mobile Puzzle Competition on The Sun

The Sun, the UK's Leading Daily Newspaper, Has Re-Launched Its Sun-doku Puzzle Mobile Competition to Its 3.5M UK Readers

WILMINGTON, DE--(Marketwire - October 2, 2007) - Mobile content technology vendor, m-Wise (OTCBB: MWIS) announces an agreement with the UK's number one daily newspaper, The Sun, part of News International. m-Wise will deliver a compelling interactive text based competition mechanic for The Sun that will run alongside its Sun-doku and Word Workout puzzles.

Following the successful introduction of the mobile Sun-doku competition earlier this year, the collaboration between m-Wise and News International is expanding to include its daily Word Workout puzzle. The mobile competition allows readers to complete its hugely popular Sun-doku and Word Workout puzzles and then send in a premium text message containing the solutions to designated squares within the puzzles via their cellular phones in order to win valuable prizes.

The SUN will offer the compelling text based competition with superb prizes to its millions of readers every day and readers will enter using premium SMS messages with the subsequent revenues generated through the participation fees to be shared by The SUN and m-Wise.

Zach Sivan, m-Wise's Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are very pleased to expand our collaboration with The Sun newspaper. This relationship is a great example of the vast potential for richer communication and entertainment that can be provided to newspaper readers using the interactive nature of mobile services."
