"We are excited to launch a compelling, easy-to-use news product that is free to users, at a time when ad-supported content on mobile phones is generating excitement in the industry," said Dan Mucha, Director of Business Strategy and Development at MSNBC.com. "While the product will initially be available directly to consumers, we see great potential in partnering with carriers to distribute it to their subscribers and to MSNBC.com's base of 29 million monthly unique users."

"In developing Multimedia on Mobile with MSNBC.com, we focused our technology on benefiting both consumers and advertisers," said Scott G. Silk, President and CEO of Action Engine. "Advertisers can reach a highly-engaged mobile audience alongside a respected news and entertainment brand through trackable display and pre-roll ads. Consumers gain free mobile access to high-quality multimedia content from the top news website in America, MSNBC.com. By doing more offline work on the mobile device, our technology enables consumers to bypass time-consuming network delays making Multimedia on Mobile a great example of how advertising should be deployed on mobile services."

"Multimedia on Mobile truly delivers a state-of-the art mobile experience for consumers. Our partnership with MSNBC.com has coupled great content with our advanced ad-supported streaming media solution to raise the bar for the industry," said Tom Parrish, Senior Vice President of Business Development for uVuMobileTM.

MSNBC.com Multimedia on Mobile, available through http://gomobile.msnbc.com from mobile and PC internet browsers, adds to MSNBC.com's mobile offering, which already includes its popular mobile internet site, accessible on Windows Mobile smartphones phones at http://www.msnbc.com. Multimedia on Mobile already supports a wide range of Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PCs and Smartphones. Windows Mobile 6 isn't supported at this point.

Multimedia on Mobile is free to consumers as it is ad sponsored, launching with Windows Mobile as the sole sponsor.

Cheers ~ Arne
