InfoGin and AOL Expand Alliance to Make it Easier For Mobile Users to Search and Browse the Web

CTIA Wireless 2006 in Las Vegas, NV- April 3, 2006 - InfoGin, a leading pioneer in the field of Web to Mobile content adaptation, today announced that it has expanded on its relationship with AOL. AOL uses InfoGin’s Intelligent Mobile Platform™ to power the mobile AOL® Search services, including the new mobile browsing service announced today. InfoGin’s technology automatically adapts Web pages for mobile screens to make it easy for consumers to navigate the Web and find anything they need, using their mobile device.

The mobile AOL® Search services were first launched in July 2005. Following a steady and successful uptake, the service is now generally available to wireless subscribers from any mobile device. With the newly enhanced mobile AOL Search services and InfoGin's technology, mobile users can enjoy a familiar Internet experience, accessing full Web content from any wireless device.

"We selected InfoGin's solution to quickly meet rising consumer demand for mobile search and browsing services,” said Eric Engstrom, senior vice president of Products for AOL’s wireless group “We’re pleased to expand on our relationship with InfoGin to make it easier than ever for mobile users to access their favorite Web sites and services on the go.”

Eran Wyler, CEO & Founder of InfoGin said: “Our unique approach originates from recognizing that in order to view a web page that was originally designed for a large screen display, the 'visual aspect' of the Web page must be analyzed; only with such technology any Web site can be automatically adapted and optimized for small displays and easy navigation. Working closely with AOL, our technology has helped AOL to provide the industry’s best user experience, driving smooth delivery and consumption of innovative mobile data services.”

InfoGin's Intelligent Mobile Platform (IMP™) is an end-to-end solution for automatic Web to mobile content adaptation, allowing mobile users to access any content they desire, optimized to their mobile device, while offering a range of solutions which enhance mobile surfing experience. Real-time optimal reformatting of content written in any markup language (Web [HTML], i-mode [i/cHTML], WAP [WML 1.X, xHTML MP] etc.) is adapted to any mobile device without compromising content richness and functionality. Typical Web activities like search, shop comparison, local listings and maps are all available.
