Zi Corporation Application to Trade on the NASDAQ Capital Market Approved

Zi's Shares Began Trading Today Under Existing Symbol "ZICA"

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 5, 2007) - Zi Corporation (TSX:ZIC)(NASDAQ:ZICA), today announced that The NASDAQ Stock Market ("NASDAQ") approved Zi's application to transfer the listing of its common shares from The NASDAQ Global Market to The NASDAQ Capital Market. Zi's common shares began trading on The NASDAQ Capital Market today, September 5, 2007, under its existing symbol "ZICA".

President and CEO Milos Djokovic said that the transfer of the listing of its common shares to The NASDAQ Capital Market under Zi's existing symbol ensures that investors can continue to trade Zi's shares on NASDAQ as before.

If the minimum closing bid price remains below US$1.00, Zi will likely receive a notice from NASDAQ that it no longer meets the continued listing requirements. If such a notice is received, Zi will have at least 180 calendar days from the date of such notice to meet the minimum closing bid price requirements in accordance with and subject to applicable NASDAQ rules.

The listing of Zi's common shares on The NASDAQ Capital Market does not affect the listing or trading of Zi's common shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange where Zi's shares are traded under the symbol "ZIC".
