[Motorola to offer SmartServ applications on many of its wireless J2ME handsets and is set to begin distribution later this year with the first downloadable application being a J2ME version of Forbes.com.]

Stamford, Conn. -- SmartServ Online, Inc. announced today that it signed a software distribution agreement with Motorola Inc. Motorola will certify and offer SmartServ applications on a variety of its wireless phones with Java(tm) 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) technology and will begin distribution in North America later this year.

Consumers in North America who have a Motorola phone with J2ME technology will have the ability to download the first application, a J2ME based version of Forbes.com Wireless, by visiting the software store on Motorola's website. The companies also expect to pursue future applications that can help provide network operators with an opportunity to generate additional average revenue per unit (ARPU).

While specific terms of the agreement were not disclosed, SmartServ will generate revenues from a share of monthly subscription and licensing fees.

"Motorola has a clear application strategy focused on providing its customers and consumers with a variety of content in the areas of entertainment, messaging, location and corporate productivity," said Joe Coletta, vice president of Solutions Management for Motorola's Personal Communications Sector. "We are pleased to have SmartServ on board to provide us with a variety of new, quality applications."

"Our strategic relationship with Motorola substantiates the value of mobile data services for carriers and other network service providers," noted Hendrik Hoets, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, SmartServ. "Downloadable applications in the hands of consumers on their mobile phones provides carriers with a market-ready opportunity to generate revenue quickly through subscriber use of wireless data," continued Hoets. "Making it easy for the consumer to access and use mobile data services is key to driving adoption and uptake," he added.
