Angelica Wireless - LAUNCH OF WIRELESS APPLICATION PACKAGE

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK (September 15, 1999) - Angelica Wireless, the leading Danish WAP solutions vendor, today introduced its Wireless Application Package on the European market. The package allows wireless telecom operators to offer services, in the area of entertainment, communication, information and customer support.

The package is initially offered to European wireless telecom operators, giving their users of WAP phones access to popular services, including sending and receiving of e-mails to other mobile phone and web users. Four leading wireless telecom operators are currently testing the package, allowing the services to be offered to end-users, as soon as the WAP phones reach the market.

"It is important that one does not focus on the high-end market of the WAP phones only. Clearly, there are several segments that could utilise the services provided by WAP. We have seen that there are many innovators and early adopters, especially among young people", said Oddleif Westby, WAP Project Manager at Telenor Mobil. "From this perspective, it seems correct and important that Angelica stresses development of games among other things. When it comes to WAP solutions development, we encourage innovation, creativity and new ideas."

"We found Angelica Wireless a very customer-oriented Company. It has been a pleasure working with them", said Thomas Klueber, Product Marketing Data Services, Mannesmann Mobilfunk GmbH.

"Angelica Wireless sees the co-operation with Telenor Mobil and Mannesmann Mobilfunk GmbH as an opportunity to test the first WAP services with two mobile operators that are always at the forefront of technology", said Jørgen Oddershede Larsen, CEO at Angelica Wireless.

Angelica Wireless will continuously work with the most ambitious wireless telecom operators to innovate new high-quality wireless information services.
