[i-WAP in collaboration with Lucent announces applications for mobile Internet solutions targeted at vertical industries and available in multiple Asian languages.]

Kuala Lupur, Malaysia -- Less than five months after announcing a collaboration for mobile Internet solutions, Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU) today announced that a host of applications developed by i-WAP Systems (Asia) Sdn Bhd are up and running at its Mobile Internet Innovations Centre (MIIC).

The applications, customised for mobile network operators in the Asia-Pacific region, are part of the showcase of potential revenue sources enabled by a next-generation network featuring a high-speed General Packet Radio Service (GPRS).

i-WAP's Systems current suite of applications is targeted at vertical industries such as financial, corporate, hospitality and other enterprises, and these are available in multiple Asian languages. The collaboration with Lucent is intended to add greater personalisation and customisation features enabled by Lucent's mobile Internet service creation platform. The resulting services will give mobile phone subscribers the ability to obtain services and information in varied locations and presence - that is, whether their device is on or off.

"Our strategic collaboration with Lucent Technologies has enabled us to focus on developing unique GPRS and 3G applications customized for Asian mobile operators," said Lawrence Ang, chairman and chief executive officer of i-WAP Systems (Asia) Sdn Bhd. "The alliance with Lucent has helped position i-WAP Systems (Asia) Sdn Bhd as a leading developer for mobile e-commerce solutions that operators can market to both mobile and PDA users.

According to Tim Clark, technical director of Lucent MIIC and Regional Technical Centre, "Lucent understands the importance of locally developed applications in fulfilling the needs of the local markets. It is an important milestone for Lucent in delivering and deploying "regionalised" mobile Internet applications in our GPRS and 3G trials and we expect these applications to be well received in meeting the requirements of the local Asian market. We are happy to collaborate with i-WAP Systems and they have demonstrated their capabilities in meeting our needs for GPRS and 3G applications in Asia.

Testing was performed using a Sagem PW959 GPRS handset, which accessed mobile Internet applications such as stock alerts, comic books, horoscopes, banking and commerce applications running live on the MIIC platforms. Other applications that are available at the MIIC include video and audio streaming supported by third generation (3G) mobile networks.
