NeoMedia’s qode Now Available in 5 Languages
‘A Big Step Closer To Market-Readiness for the Major Markets in Europe’
FORT MYERS, Fla., Nov. 30, 2006 – NeoMedia Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB NEOM), has introduced a full five-language version -- in English, Spanish, French, German, and Italian -- of its patented qode® Mobile Software, and upgraded its download site to detect further information from handsets to speed over-the-air downloads in a consumer’s preferred language to more than 130 JAVA- and Symbian®-based cell phones.
“Whether the consumer speaks English, Spanish, French, German, or Italian – and soon Chinese – we now have qode Mobile Software for them,” said Martin Copus, president of NeoMedia Mobile. “And in order to deliver the software already optimized in their language, our over-the-air (OTA) download site now ‘sniffs’ the preferred language of the handset -- in addition to its make and model -- to make downloading and installing qode a ‘no-brainer’. This takes us a big step closer to market-readiness for the major markets in Europe, especially as the new five language software covers both the Java and Symbian operating systems.”
Over-the-air downloads of qode multi-language software are available by entering in a device’s browser. NeoMedia’s proprietary download software then takes over, and qode is “automagically delivered,” said Mr. Copus. “The native language of the handset is detected, and pre-selected in the software, with the user given easy-to-follow installation instructions in the matching language. And this is done for a long (and growing) list of qode-supported handsets – now in excess of 130,” Mr. Copus said.
The qode (www.qode.com) suite of easy-to-use applications includes qode®reader and qode®window, providing One Click to Content™ connectivity for products, print, packaging and other physical objects to link directly to specific desired content on the Mobile Web. qode®reader works with camera phones, letting users “click” on two-dimensional “smart codes” for a direct connection to desired information, discount coupons, maps, contest entry forms, etc., and qode®window lets users enter a key word, phrase, UPC, etc., for similar connection.
