Mobile Music Pioneer Helps Alltel Offer Alternative to Cable Side-Loading Giving Consumers Anywhere Access to Music Libraries on Their PC's

PALO ALTO, Calif., - Jan. 15, 2008 – mSpot, a pioneer in mobile music and radio, and Alltel Wireless, America’s largest network, today announced that mSpot Remix will power the carrier’s first over-the-air (OTA) mobile phone to PC music syncing service. Alltel’s Music powered by Celltop is the easiest way for consumers to access their entire non-DRM protected music libraries from their wireless phones.

To use Music powered by Celltop, customers simply visit the Axcess Shop on their Alltel phone to subscribe. The mSpot Remix mobile player then connects with the customer’s PC over Alltel’s network, providing the consumer anywhere access to all of the stored songs and playlists. When a customer hits “play” from the mSpot Remix mobile player, Remix immediately starts playing the song while downloading the entire track in the background.  Remix then saves the songs to the phone’s memory card, so the customer has access to their songs in the future – even when not connected to the network.

“We are extremely excited to work with Alltel Wireless and bring their customers an easy way to use their phones as music players,” said Daren Tsui, co-founder and CEO of mSpot. “With no cables and an incredibly easy-to-use wireless interface, Alltel’s Music powered by Celltop is the first service to leverage the power of their network to make music truly mobile.”

Music powered by Celltop is currently available to Alltel customers with the new MOTOROKR Z6m for a monthly subscription of $3.99 or for a three month subscription of $9.99. Alltel has plans to launch the service to other Celltop capable handsets in the first half of 2008.

"Remix has allowed Alltel Wireless to deliver the most innovative and flexible wireless music solution in the industry, said Scott Moody, director of multimedia services for Alltel Wireless. “Our customers love their music, and we’ve given them a way to take it with them anywhere.”

mSpot Remix over-the-air (OTA) music syncing is available to mobile operators as a standalone service or a compliment to mSpot’s other popular mobile music services, which include the mSpot Make-A-Ringer ringtone customization service as well as streaming radio and videos.
