Launch of NeoMedia qode Technology Featured in New Prentice Hall Text Book

‘Marketing: Real People, Real Choices’ Becomes Interactive via the Mobile Internet

FORT MYERS, Fla., Sept. 28, 2006 – The launch of qode® technology from NeoMedia Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB NEOM), which links consumers and cell phones directly to information and offers on the Mobile Internet, will be featured in the new edition of a popular marketing text book from Prentice Hall, a worldwide leader in text book publishing.  NeoMedia is an innovator in market-driven technologies, with offices and subsidiary companies in the U.S. and Europe.

“Marketing: Real People, Real Choices,” annually used by thousands of  college students and hundreds of professors and instructors worldwide, will feature the launch of qode by NeoMedia, including interviews with Rick Szatkowski, vice president of business development for the qode product line, and others in print in the text, and in a video filmed at the company’s Fort Myers headquarters. 

The fifth edition of  “Marketing: Real People, Real Choices,” scheduled to be in global distribution in January 2007, is written by Dr. Michael R. Solomon, visiting professor of Marketing, St. Joseph's University, Greg W. Marshall, professor of Marketing and Strategy in the Crummer Graduate School of Business, Rollins College, and Elnora W. Stuart, professor of Marketing and BP Egypt Oil professor of Management Studies at The American University in Cairo. The authors selected five companies and product marketing programs in addition to NeoMedia for the upcoming edition – Tupperware®, Ron Jon Surf ShopK, Darden Restaurants Inc. (the world's largest casual dining restaurant company with brands including Red Lobster™, Olive Garden™, Bahama Breeze™ and Smokey Bones Barbeque & Grill™), and Grendha Shoes Corporation, the U.S. distributor of U.S. brands Rider, Melissa and Grendha. 

Worldwide Launch and Go-to-Market Strategy of qode Detailed

“NeoMedia is delighted to have our exciting multi-media launch of qode included with these prestigious international companies and brands,” said Mr. Szatkowski.  “Taking part in a detailed case study of our go-to-market strategy for qode worldwide – including the challenge of creating and then fulfilling the need for a breakthrough technology-based offering, is exciting and worthwhile.  Together with the authors and Prentice Hall, we have made this one of the first interactive textbooks using the Mobile Internet, delivering updated information as well as ‘fun’ content to the students and professors through their mobile phones.”  <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Representing his co-authors, Dr. Solomon said NeoMedia and qode were chosen for the new edition of their book “because mobile marketing represents and achieves the next level in performance-based marketing.  

qode provides an opportunity for marketers to create a one-to-one marketing experience with the consumer wherever and whenever they are interacting with a product or brand through conventional media,” he said.  “Responses to ‘calls-to-action’ become measurable by media channel, providing marketers with the ability to fine-tune their message and channels in real-time.  As a case study, the challenge of primary demand creation for qode and the development of partner ecosystems will stimulate professor/student dialog.” 

Mr. Szatkowski said that making “Marketing: Real People, Reach Choices” the first truly interactive text book is being viewed by Prentice Hall as a pilot program in its internal evaluation of interactive text books.  He said the section on NeoMedia will include eight uses of qode – three for information and five for general interest on the Mobile Web.  In addition, he said qode will also be used in the Ron Jon and Grendha sections of the text book.

Information on qode is available at www.qode.com, and information on “Marketing: Real People, Real Choices” is available from Prentice Hall (www.prenhall.com)

CBS Network Television Offers Mobile Users Free Downloads of Clips from Its New Fall Line Up via Kameleon Technologies Mobizone® Systems

CBS Network Television offers mobile users free downloads of clips from its new Fall line up via Kameleon Technologies Mobizone® Bluetooth download systems at Billboad locations in Grand Central Station.

This September, commuters using Grand Central Station in New York City will notice something different about the CBS TV billboard campaign announcing the new fall line up of television shows: the offering of free downloads of clips from the various series via mobile Bluetooth connectivity that can be played instantly, saved or passed to friends.

Here’s how it works: Each Billboard invites the mobile user to open his Bluetooth connection and make it discoverable. Then the user is invited to accept a free clip from the particular Show. If he accepts, the clip automatically downloads and plays on the screen of the mobile.

The campaign features multiple locations in Grand Central Station, each featuring downloadable content via MobiZone® from a particular CBS Network television series…

According to George Schweitzer, director of advertising for CBS TV Network, “We felt that the new bluetooth download services offered by Kameleon Technologies’ MobiZone® units would be a great feature to add to our traditional OOH campaign announcing the launch of the new Fall season. We certainly have great content, and telling viewers about it is our job. MobiZone units attached to our OOH billboards is a value-added plus for our OOH media spend, offering people the free opportunity to see our content without incurring a charge from their mobile carrier.”

According to Jodi Senese, VP CBS Outdoor, “We are pleased to be one of the first OOH media groups in the US to offer MobiZone® free download services as an add-on to our OOH systems nationwide. For the media buyer, MobiZone® can leverage the OOH spend in a way that can increase value, etc.

According to <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Patrick Nagle, CMO for Kameleon, “We are very excited to be working with CBS Television Network and the CBS Outdoor division on this project. Brands and Media companies like CBS can well benefit from MobiZone® applications to OOH media locations, as they have great content that people want to know more about.

Kameleon Technologies is an international mobile technology company based in Paris with offices in Cambridge and New York. MobiZone® is a turn key hardware/software solution that lets mobile users download free brand and media content via Bluetooth. No application is required on the user’s handset.

AirG’s Mobile Community Hits 10 Million Users; Becomes World’s Fastest Growing Mobile
Social Network

Advertisers Embracing Wireless Social Networks as Effective New Medium; AirG Survey Shows Spending Habits of Community Members

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – August 28, 2006 –
AirG, the global leader in powering mobile communities and wireless social networking, announced today that as of May 1, 2006, its mobile community reached a new milestone by surpassing more than 10 million unique users, making it the fastest growing mobile social network in the world.  The rapid growth of AirG’s community is evidence that wireless social networking is becoming a mass market phenomenon and will soon rival the popularity of social networking on the Internet. 

AirG has been successfully powering social networking on mobile phones since 2000, and has built a mobile community that is interconnected to more than 85 mobile operators globally, including Sprint Nextel, Cingular, Boost Mobile, Orange and Virgin Mobile.  Many of AirG’s millions of unique users are in the coveted 18-25 demographic and spend an average of 59 minutes per day in the community.  Based on these numbers, it is no surprise that mobile operators, media companies, consumer brands and advertisers alike are taking notice.

“AirG’s social network is the only mobile application in the market today where users are captive in a live and interactive environment on their phones for an average of an hour each day,” commented Frederick Ghahramani, co-founder of AirG.  “This provides a tremendous opportunity for mobile operators, brand holders and advertisers to engage customers and communicate with them directly.”

To demonstrate the power of mobile communities to reach consumers directly, AirG recently conducted a survey in its community where over 30,000 users responded in just 90 minutes and provided valuable insights into their spending habits and behaviors.  The survey found that the majority of users would rather chat on their phone than watch TV, do not own a PC, spend more than $80 each month on their mobile phone, and spend more than $100 each month on clothes and entertainment.  In fact, the response rate to advertising in AirG’s mobile community is on average more than ten times as effective as online.

AirG’s comprehensive suite of mobile community products includes the Community Marketing Engine, Community Patrol, Community Storefront, Community Marketing Toolkit and Micro-Community Interface, and is available for licensing by mobile operators, media companies and consumer brands.  By combining instant critical mass, recurring revenues, 24x7 monitoring and support, and the ability to target market directly to users in the community with a patented cutting edge user interface; AirG has the most feature-rich, interactive and fastest growing mobile community solution available in the market today.

® Series 60 operating system prevalent on Nokia® handsets. Other handset users can still access the offer by means of the Web-based version of the qode®window part of the software, to which they are directed as part of the quick and easy download process.

‘Testing the Future of Advertising’

“We are testing the future of advertising via newspaper ads which link to the screens of consumers’ cell phones,” said Martin Copus, president of NeoMedia Mobile and COO of the parent company. “This pilot program brings to life what advertisers and marketers have been searching for and talking about for years –the ability for one-to-one, 24/7 communication with consumers, with all the multimedia possibilities of the mobile Internet.

“This is just the beginning,” Mr. Copus said.  “While NeoMedia is excited to launch this pilot program for qode in conjunction with the grand opening of our AutoXperience business in the U.S., we are looking ahead to bringing this ground-breaking technology fully to market -- across different operating systems in the U.S. and overseas -- in the very near future.

“NeoMedia’s product development pipeline is very much full,” he said, “given our goal of establishing qode as the worldwide industry standard for direct-to-Web connectivity from mobile handsets.”

Cellufun, whose off-deck strategy has attracted more than 1 million subscribers, will use Internet-linked smartcodes and keywords from NeoMedia in print ads, online, and other promotions “deep-linked” to its mobile games.  Along with subscribing to smartcodes and keywords, Cellufun will drive downloads of the qode mobile phone software to existing and new subscribers, allowing them to link to game downloads on the Mobile Internet by clicking on a smartcode or entering a keyword.

Clicking on a smartcode or keying in a keyword from our print promotions or Web site is the best and fastest way to effortlessly download a game.”

“Globally, the off-portal market is becoming more and more significant,” said Martin Copus, president of NeoMedia Mobile and COO of the parent company, noting that London-based industry analyst Ovum Ltd. projects off-portal market will contribute some 40 per cent of the growing mobile content market by 2007.  “Giving consumers a fast track to the Mobile Internet and quickly and easily connecting them with the content they want will benefit them as well as the content providers.”

“NeoMedia is excited to be on the leading edge of this exploding market in partnership with Cellufun,” said Rick Szatkowski, vice president of Business Development for qode. “Recognizing the interdependence between the necessary constituents of the Mobile Internet ecosystem, NeoMedia will continue to use qode and work with our partners to bolster what we believe is a leadership position in the rapidly growing market uptake for mobile gaming and other Mobile Web content and applications.”
