VuBotics, Inc. (OTCBB: VBTC), developer of VuIT™, a proprietary software application that sequentially delivers text for online, small screen and broadcast applications, announced today that Duane Morris, one of the 100 largest law firms in the world, has entered the second stage of a pilot test for the enterprise version of VulT™ eMail Reader for BlackBerry. Duane Morris was licensed to use VuBotics VulT™ in January 2007 and has successfully completed the first phase of a pilot test. Upon completion of this second test phase, expected to be completed during the third quarter, lawyers and staff will have the opportunity to benefit from being able to consume information two to three times faster and with greater comfort. By integrating the reach and dependability of the BlackBerry network with the productivity of the VuIT eMail Reader, Duane Morris is once again demonstrating a willingness to leverage technology to improve the productivity of its lawyers and staff.

Duane Morris has built a strong collaborative culture using the most dynamic communications platforms available to top 100 law firms. The firm plans to further enhance the value of its communications investment by offering secure, first class software applications that can personalize the delivery of critical information anywhere and at any time. VuIT eMail Reader loads effortlessly onto each device and allows individuals to read emails at their own pace -- whether at the average speed of readers today, 175 - 200 words per minute, or at the average speed of VuIT-enabled readers, 450 - 600 words per minute, or more. Without any training or additional support, VuIT can substantially improve any professional's productivity.

"In 2007, our main technological goal is to deliver applications that both enhance productivity and allow for the lawyers to provide superior service to their clients," said John Sroka, Duane Morris' Chief Information Officer. "To assist with achieving this goal, we've chosen to deploy VuIT eMail Reader on our enterprise BlackBerry server. This initiative will enable more than 650 lawyers and their staff across 20 offices to gain even more benefit from their BlackBerrys -- saving valuable time and resources for the firm and its clients."

According to Richard Keck, counsel to VuBotics and a Duane Morris partner focusing on telecom, "After a thorough evaluation of the technology, I believe that VuIT is quite simply the best solution for small screens I have ever seen. I only used it twice before I got hooked and I am looking forward to VuBotics' future development of the VuIT Reader for attachments, textcasting and online browsing."

"We are quite pleased that progressive law firms like Duane Morris see the value that VuIT can deliver for professionals anywhere and at any time," said David Rollo, Chief Marketing Officer at VuBotics. "This is a perfect example of an industry that depends on constant access to timely and sometimes voluminous information. Duane Morris' attorneys can now prepare faster than ever, downloading a brief or letter, whether on the train to work or walking into the courtroom. Every lawyer needs that advantage, and Duane Morris is ensuring that its professionals will be equipped with the most advanced reading technologies in the industry. We look forward to completion of the pilot test and the rollout of VulT™ throughout the organization."
