Bedminster, NJ and Raleigh, NC -- Verizon Wireless, the nation's largest wireless carrier and Summus, Inc., a leader in the development of efficient information processing solutions for mobile and wireless devices, today announced that exego(tm), its recently introduced suite of multimedia applications for mobile and wireless devices, will be available to Verizon Wireless BREW users starting May 6, 2002. With exego, wireless users can do today what was once thought impossible - sending photos, and much more, through a wireless phone.
exego provides users with multimedia messaging, e-mail, and image and file sharing on wireless devices. Users can view, share, and send their own color images in a messaging session or through email. exego is powered by BlueFuel(tm), Summus' powerful information processing platform.
"exego represents a brand new class of applications that sets the stage for future wireless offerings," said Jim Straight, vice president of Wireless Data and Internet Services for Verizon Wireless. "The BREW launch in San Diego has been exceptionally successful and adding truly innovative applications such as exego makes BREW a compelling draw for our customers. We expect our customers to be as excited for the national rollout of BREW, which we expect to happen by the end of the month."
"The exego service exemplifies the type of applications that will allow end-users to be productive on the go," said Peggy Johnson, president of QUALCOMM's Internet Services. "We believe that the combination of the largest wireless carrier in the U.S., Verizon Wireless, and the power of Summus' exego is an unbeatable value for subscribers."
In San Diego, exego is available at the promotional subscription price of $5.95 per month. For a limited time, users will be able to subscribe to a 30 day free trial through Verizon Wireless.
