PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Thin Multimedia, Inc. (TMI), a leading developer and provider of mobile multimedia solutions, and Tata Teleservices Limited (TTSL), India's fastest growing mobile service provider, today announced that they entered into an agreement to implement TMI's thinMME Mobile Multimedia Solution on Tata Teleservices network in India.

Tata Teleservices will license TMI's thinMME (Mobile Multimedia Engine) to enable multimedia playback of content on its handsets. thinMME allows users to access multimedia content from the Internet and play it back on their handset in real-time. Users will also be able to view multimedia content from their handsets. thinMME can be easily integrated into cell phones, smart phones, PDAs, and other portable devices. thinMME operates on a variety of platforms such as Brew, Symbian, WIPI, Java, and Linux.

Commenting on the commercial agreement with Thin Multimedia, Mr. Pankaj Sethi, President - Value Added Services, Tata Teleservies, said, "As India evolves from a pure voice to data driven market, we wanted to take the lead to be the first service provider to offer exciting mobile media services which are not handset dependent. The license with TMI, the world's leading provider of mobile multimedia solutions, would enable us to offer rich and cutting edge multimedia contents on any handset at affordable prices. TMI's full range of compression/decompression (codec) software offers superior compression ratio enabling consumers to enjoy multimedia content without worrying about the battery drainage."

Tata Teleservices is India's fastest growing telecom service provider with over 16 million subscribers across India, offering a bouquet of telephony services which includes Mobile services, Wireless Desktop Phones, Public Booth Telephony and Wireline services. Having pioneered the CDMA 3G1x technology platform in India, Tata has established a robust and reliable 3G ready telecom infrastructure that ensures quality in its services.

"We are delighted to add our second carrier customer in India with this agreement with Tata Teleservices. We have been commercially serving the Indian mobile market since 2002 with Reliance Infocomm, and are looking forward to working with Tata Teleservices to make a major impact in the rapidly growing market in India," said David Kim, Senior Vice President of TMI.
