O3SIS Opens Push Mail to Broad Consumer Market With Support for Virtually Any Mobile Device

New Service Mobilizes Existing Email Accounts, and Requires No Hardware Add-Ons or Software to Install

GOLD RIVER, CA and ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2007 -- CTIA Wireless 2007 -- O3SIS Information Technology AG, a leading provider of personal mobile applications and Over-the-Air (OTA) data synchronization (DS) technology for first tier mobile operators and internet service providers, today announced the general availability of its Multi Channel Push Mail platform. This consumer-oriented push mail solution extends phone client support to virtually any mobile device, giving mobile operators a broad target market for mobile email as most subscribers can easily use the service with their existing mobile phones.

Already used by more than 1.5 million subscribers worldwide, O3SIS Multi Channel Push Mail represents the industry's first push mail platform able to support multiple client technologies, including MMS, OMA-DS, OMA-EMN, P-IMAP, as well as native POP3, and IMAP4 clients. This broad support for current and emerging protocols enables mobile operators to roll out consumer email quickly without relying on a single technology or struggling with lengthy handset certification periods.

"When it comes to the consumer market, mobile operators simply cannot afford to be locked into proprietary technology and a handful of supported end user devices," said Dirk Dörre, CEO and CTO at O3SIS. "With its support for virtually any mobile handset, Multi Channel Push Mail opens push mail service to the widest range of consumers to date. It gives operators a flexible solution they can deploy today, without the worry of investing in a proprietary solution that may soon be obsolete."

Designed to deliver a simple, consumer-focused experience, O3SIS Multi Channel Push Mail is easy to use from the start. Subscribers can add the service to their existing phones without having to invest in a new hardware. There's no client software to install and the server automatically configures a new user's phone right over the mobile network. And Multi Channel Push Mail enables users to mobilize their existing email accounts, eliminating the need to create and juggle separate email accounts for their mobile phone. Users can even push email from multiple accounts to their mobile phone for maximum reachability.

The launch of Multi Channel Push Mail platform also brings new features designed to enhance the consumer mobile experience, including advanced virus protection, spam filtering, user-defined white/blacklists, and the O3SIS Address Book that allows consumers to keep their contact entries synchronized across their PC and mobile phone, as updates are made automatically over the mobile network.

O3SIS Multi Channel Push Mail is a key component of the company's Unified Mobile Applications platform that gives mobile operators a compelling road map for delivering enhanced, consumer-oriented mobile services. Unified Mobile Applications enable mobile operators to build loyal subscriber communities and create additional revenue opportunities by rolling out multiple value-added services -- including Over-the-Air data synchronization, a full-featured address book, mobile device backup/restore, mobile personal information management (PIM) functionality, and mobile media publishing.
