Stockholm 3 March 2000

room33 and Norways biggest telecom operator, Telenor Mobil, have signed an agreement for the Norwegian launch of room33.com mobile Internet services. room33.com will be featured on Telenor Mobils WAP site, providing all Telenor Mobil WAP users with easy and fast access to room33.com services.

This is an important agreement for us says Zaheed Haque, CEO, room33. Being featured on Telenor Mobils WAP site allows us to reach the majority of Norwegian mobile Internet users. At the same time, Telenor Mobils customers will have access to the first commercially available WAP mail service in the world. During spring, we will add new features to our present offering, as well as totally new mobile Internet services that will benefit Telenor Mobils customers.

room33.com, already launched in six languages, will offer Telenor Mobil subscribers cutting edge services in their native tounge. Mobile Internet is all about context and ease of use, concludes Mr Haque. Services must be personalised, timely and local.

Initial interactive services include:

  • My room33 - allows users to personalise all services and information offered in the room33.com package.

  • room33 Messenger - a mobile messaging service that allows users to send and receive free email from their computer or WAP-phone, to send SMS, fax and send messages to ICQ.

  • room33 Calendar - a mobile calendar that allows users to read and update entries and appointments whether they are sitting by the computer or are on the move with a WAP-phone in their hand.

  • room33 Contacts - an address book where the user can store contact information and access it from a WAP-phone or a hand held computer with Internet access.

  • room33 Directory - a guide to a number of mobile Internet services accessible from a WAP-phone.

  • room33 Weather - always updated worldwide weather information on your WAP-phone. You can set bookmarks for the cities that are relevant to you on the web as well as on the WAP-phone.

  • room33 Stocks - stock quotes from NASDAQ and Stockholm. Individual stocks can be bookmarked and viewed on the web as well as on the WAP-phone.
