NeoMedia’s qode® Now Available for Sony-Ericsson JAVA Mobile Phones
FORT MYERS, Fla., Oct. 11, 2006 – NeoMedia Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: NEOM), a leader in market-driven technologies, announced today that its flagship direct-to-mobile-web qode® technology is now available through a free download to run on eight Sony-Ericsson® mobile phones based on the popular JAVA MIDP 2.0 technology.
Free downloads of NeoMedia qode software for JAVA are available to Sony-Ericsson users by invoking the browser on the phone and entering “get.qode.com.” qode, including qode®reader and qode®window, can then be installed in just a few minutes by following instructions on the phone’s screen.
List of Compatible Mobile Phones to Grow
NeoMedia, which plans to add more JAVA-based phones supporting qode in the coming weeks, previously introduced qode for the Symbian® Series 60 operating system, prevalent on Nokia® mobile phones.
NeoMedia’s patented qode (www.qode.com) suite of easy-to-use applications includes qode®reader and qode®window, which provide One Click to Content™ connectivity for products, print, packaging and other physical objects to link directly to specific desired content on the Mobile Internet. qode®reader works with camera phones, letting users “click” on two-dimensional “smart codes” to connect directly to targets, while qode®window lets users enter a key word, phrase or product name to connect to a target.
“NeoMedia is delighted to announce that Sony-Ericsson is the latest manufacturer whose phones support the qode platform of consumer products,” said Martin Copus, president of NeoMedia Mobile and COO of the parent company.
“Mobile marketing – the real-time live interconnection between consumers and marketing companies – is still in its infancy in the U.S., but has already taken wing in Europe and Asia,” Mr. Copus said. “NeoMedia will continue to add to the list of manufacturers and mobile phones that support qode as mobile marketing continues to evolve here and grow around the world.”
The Sony-Ericsson MIDP 2.0 phones now running qode include the Sony-Ericsson K600i, Sony-Ericsson K700i, Sony-Ericsson K750i, Sony-Ericsson S710a, Sony-Ericsson W550i, Sony-Ericsson W600i, Sony-Ericsson W900i, and Sony-Ericsson Z800, in use in both the U.S. and Europe according to m:metrics (www.mmetrics.com), a leading authority on the mobile marketplace.
