Jumbuck's Mobile Social Networking Services Now Speak Portuguese

Jumbuck Entertainment Ltd. has launched its 'Chat do Mundo' service with Vivo, the largest mobile phone service provider in Brazil and the Southern Hemisphere. As a result, Vivo subscribers can now interact using a Portuguese-language version of Jumbuck's popular mobile chat service. Initially, Chat do Mundo will use the WAP protocol, with an SMS version following soon to offer compatibility with a wider range of handsets.

The agreement represents a significant expansion for Jumbuck into a new geographic area that offers attractive subscriber and revenue growth opportunities. This new Portuguese-language service adds to Jumbuck's already extensive language capabilities offered to subscribers that speak English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian and Spanish.

Furthering its reach, Jumbuck will shortly deploy 'Chat do Mundo' with leading carriers in Portugal, including Optimus, TMN and Vodafone. The Brazilian mobile phone market has shown substantial growth in recent years and has recently surpassed 100 million users.
