News, Email and Movie Listings Get Easier to Navigate on the Mobile Phone for freenet Subscribers

Dynetic Develops Mobile Portal for freenet

Herndon, Virginia -- April 17, 2007 – Dynetic Mobile Solutions, a software provider that enhances Web browsing on the mobile phone, today announced that freenet, an Internet telecommunications company, will use its platform to deliver easier surfing on the mobile handsets of freenet subscribers. News, stock exchange listings and current movie schedules will all be transformed to fit the screen size of a mobile phone with freenet’s  optimized mobile portal. The new portal, built on Dynetic’s platform, allows visitors of to access a variety of services including email access, price checks or the soccer live ticker – all depicted clearly in the respective phone’s display with size-appropriate structure and menu navigation. The emoveo UAP technology from Dynetic, which specializes in converting Web content for the mobile Internet, was used to realize this project.

The new mobile portal is part of freenet’s plan to offer customers affordable rates and innovative products. It is accessible to everybody, not just freenet customers. Rather than adapt content uniformly from the freenet Web site for the, all services have been selected based on their benefits for the mobile user. For example, visitors won’t have to sift through multiple freenet Web pages to find news, search for the movie listings or TV listings or download ring tones, logos, and games for their handset – only the most relevant material for the mobile user is transcoded for the mobile site.

“The mobile Internet will become a huge growth market within the next few years. We are concentrating our efforts to deliver Internet applications like music downloads, email or online shopping on mobile handsets. However, we will only reach consumers if the product is user-friendly and affordable”,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

describes Gregor Poniewasz, head of the portal unit of freenet AG, the mobile portal’s future. “For the technological realization of the mobile portal we decided to use Dynetic since the company is a leader in this area. Dynetic has convinced us with their expertise and experience regarding mobile Internet and has fulfilled our high expectations and ambitious goals.”

“We are pleased that Dynetic has been chosen to realize this comprehensive mobile portal for freenet,” said Michael Neidhöfer, CEO of Dynetic. “Our software guarantees freenet a high quality when delivering mobile content. We will of course support the newest technologies – now and in the future.”

Dynetic‘s emoveo UAP technology coverts almost all content for display on mobile handsets, including text, pictures, movies and sound. The automatic  transcoding feature of emoveo allows content to assimilate itself to the mobile device and is shown according to display size. Using emoveo, companies can profit from the enormous potential of mobile phones and PDAs – for mobilizing their traditional online presence or developing new business ideas, from a mobile portal to a social community site.

freenet AG is one of the leading Internet and telecommunications providers in Germany. In March 2007, the listed company gained additional power by the merger of AG with mobilcom AG – as it is now able to offer a mix of Internet, fixed-line telephony and mobile telecommunications. freenet AG combines the expertise of the mobile telecommunications company mobilcom with the deep know-how of Internet and fixed-line provider AG, the former mobilcom subsidiary.

Dynetic Enhances the eBay Experience for Mobile Users with New Platform

New eBay mobile application launched in the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />US and Europe ensures best customer experience on mobile.

KAISERSLAUTERN, GERMANY – March 26, 2007 – Dynetic Mobile Solutions, a mobile platform provider that transforms and optimizes any kind of application for a wide range of devices, today announced that eBay has selected its technology platform to build the new eBay mobile application. The application will be available for download on eBay and on selected carriers across Europe and the US. Vodafone will also pre-load the application on selected handsets.

The client application is based on Dynetic’s emoveo UAP software and provides eBay customers with a rich experience to access eBay, search, browse, fond deals and bid on auctions or purchase fixed price items. The solution is the latest milestone in the collaboration between Dynetic and eBay.

“eBay users want to access eBay all the time. They will never miss the end of an auction.”, says Henri Moissinac, Head of eBay mobile,. “Thanks to Dynetic, we made the eBay mobile application fun and easy to use.”

“We are excited that eBay is using our technology to give customers an improved experience on mobile,” says Michael Neidhoefer, chief executive officer of Dynetic. “This new mobile application complements to mobile WAP portal and SMS alert system Dynetic had already built for eBay.”

The mobile portal, which can be accessed through the phone’s Web browser, has been available since 2003. With Dynetic’s new high-end Java client, the end consumer will experience a clearly structured interface that is easier to navigate and matches the phone’s display size. An “eBay” option will also join the fixed menus of several new mobile handset models. This makes it easier to participate in an auction, search for products or view articles. In addition, the eBay customer will receive real-time alerts when his auction is finished or his offer is outbid. Saved search results can be accessed at a later date without an Internet connection.

Manual testing of new mobile devices will no longer be necessary with Dynetic’s emoveo platform, which automates the software update to a real-time system as opposed to the manual process which was used on a monthly basis.

Dynetic’s eBay mobile Client will be available for users in North America and Europe in April.

Dynetic has been a collaborator in ebay’s mobile strategy since 2003 – for more than ten countries worldwide. The mobile portal is available for users in Belgium, Germany, UK, France, Italy, Austria, Spain, and the USA. Customers in Ireland, Switzerland and Canada will be able to access the client later this year. In 2006, Dynetic also developed a mobile bidding client for eBay via SMS.

Personalized Marketing: Identify and Remember Your Customer

April 13, 2007- In April 2007 TeriMobile has announced the beta release of the new comprehensive software platform to support Bluetooth communication process. The platform TeriZone developed by TeriMobile allows the consumers to choose what, where and from whom they will receive information, and what kind of information this will be.

There are a number of marketing and communications issues that TeriMobile addresses with its new solution:

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

·          Opt-in: The bluecasting campaigns implemented so far have been leading to dissatisfaction of the receivers. TeriZone concept works only with those mobile users who have registered with the system and set their preferences.

·          Targeting: During the registration process the mobile users will be offered to set up their preferences: what, when, where, how often and from whom they wish to receive messages. The advertisers having access to the consumer preferences database will then have an opportunity to target the specific needs and requirements of the individuals. Thus the “Bluetooth broadcasting” (non-targeted and delivered to the masses) practice turns into the “Bluetooth narrowcasting” (personalized and delivered to an individual) process.

·          Creativity vs Spam. With the targeting opportunities the advertisers will see TeriZone as a support to creative and interesting campaigns in buzz marketing.

·          Proximity: TeriZone is an effective tool for implementing location based services. A Bluetooth-enabled mobile user will be able to receive information from the brands operating in the proximity area (such as movie trailers from a cinema nearby, flyers and coupons from various stores or cafes/restaurants in a trade centre, mp3 files with the tracks of the newly released music albums etc.).

The areas and industries where Bluetooth marketing techniques and location based services can be applied vary from retail chains and cafes through banks to municipalities. The more detailed but far not the complete list of application areas can be found here.

You can watch the video here to find out more advantages of being a registered user or advertiser at TeriZone.

Text HOUSE (46873)

Find more than 77 million real estate values via text message with new free service

Denver, CO (March 29, 2007) — A Denver-based company announced today the beta release in the next step in real estate revolution — cell phone text messaging.

HouseFront is a patent pending mobile service allowing people to receive free, accurate property values and information on more than 77 million homes in the U.S., whether listed for sale or not, via mobile phone and text messaging.

As buyers, sellers and voyeurs flock to the Web for home market values, HouseFront founder James Eberhard figured he could go one step further.

“The power of the Internet is one thing,” notes Eberhard. “But HouseFront gives the user access to housing information while they stand in front of a home, using technology that nearly every American has in their hand. No one else is providing this kind of data via text messaging.”

Through mobile technology and a highly sophisticated proprietary data system, HouseFront users can access information about homes and neighborhoods almost instantly from anywhere. Whether driving through a desirable neighborhood, or standing in front of their dream home, the user simply types in the property address to their cell phone, sends to the common short code 46873 (which spells out “HOUSE”) and HouseFront will send a response that includes the home’s estimated value and characteristics including the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, total square footage, last sold date and neighborhood sales trends. The service is free, although standard text messaging rates apply.

For serious house hunters, the service also includes an interface between the user’s cell phone and an online database at All properties sent to HOUSE while on the road are then saved in a password-protected database and logged in a personal folder that can be viewed at any time by entering their mobile phone number at

“The mobile phone is now the access point by which people get information,” notes Eberhard. “The quicker and more directly we can access information, the more informed we are as consumers. HouseFront provides immediate, accurate mobile data.”

Of the 230 million cell phones subscribed in the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />U.S., 95 percent are capable of text messaging. Last year alone, text message usage skyrocketed 92 percent, with 18.7 billion messages sent in the month of December, 2006.

The service uses patent pending technology that harnesses data from Multiple Listing Services (MLS) and unique neighborhood clustering to systematically improve the depth and accuracy of residential real estate intelligence. While the data is in its beta version, Eberhard anticipates future user options. The next development is the release of short code 22727, which spells CASAS, and will be a Spanish user interface of HouseFront’s text message and online services.

Eberhard, who founded HouseFront in late 2006, is a pioneer in the emerging mobile space. The 28-year old entrepreneur founded 9Squared in 2001, one of the first providers of downloadable ringtones. In 2004, he sold the company to UK-based Monstermob Group PLC, a publicly traded company with reach in 19 countries. He subsequently created HouseFront to tap into the possibilities of text message technology.

About HouseFront
HouseFront is a privately-held company founded in 2006 and based in Denver, CO. The real estate information services company uses the newest patent pending technology and consistently accurate housing data to allow for instant and mobile access to property information across the U.S. For more information, please visit or send a text message to 46873 (HOUSE) with a residential property address.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Lowest Unique Bidder to Have His or Her 2006 Personal Income Taxes Paid

With April 17 just around the corner, Limbo 41414 will turn text messages into tax relief with its “Text for Tax Relief” game. Beginning Monday, April 9, the mobile-entertainment pioneer will offer one lucky American cell phone user a chance to have his or her personal income taxes paid by winning the innovative “Limbo Auction,” in which the lowest unique bidder will be rewarded with the funds to pay his or her return (equal to the personal income tax national average of $2,752). Mobile users can enter by sending a text message with the word TAX to 41414 or by visiting to play online. Complete rules are available at

A Limbo Auction is distinct from any other experience in that the winner is the person who makes the lowest bid that no other player makes, as opposed to the highest bid. This encourages players to develop and employ bidding strategies, as well as to stay highly engaged during each round as they receive comments and tips regarding their bids (e.g., “You’re the lowest unique bid,” “Your bid is unique but not the lowest,” etc.).

Since launching in January 2006, Limbo 41414 has rewarded more than 650 Limbo Auction winners with over $530,000 in prizes. Limbo 41414 winners have purchased such luxury items as a Hummer H3 for $36.65, a Mini Cooper for $50.43, and a year’s supply of gasoline and a plasma TV for $54.24 and $8.85, respectively.
