GUILDFORD, U.K. -- Volantis, the world’s leading supplier of Intelligent Content Adaptation solutions for the mobile Internet, today announced the launch of i-mode Express for O2, a service to help content providers deploy mobile services on O2’s upcoming i-mode platform, scheduled to launch in the UK and Ireland later this year and in Germany next spring.

i-mode Express builds on Volantis’ extensive experience of deploying i-mode services for major brands in France, Spain and Benelux. The service is available immediately for brands wanting to deliver mobile services on O2’s i-mode platform. FT.com is the first customer to sign up for the new package.

i-mode is the world’s most popular mobile Internet platform with 45 million users worldwide. Unlike any other service in the UK, i-mode will deliver the nearest thing to true Internet access through mobile devices – enabling users to access independent web-based resources owned and managed by content providers, not the network operator. This combination of power and flexibility for users and new business model for content providers will make i-mode an important and vibrant new mobile technology for the UK.

Grahame Riddell, Head of i-mode Marketing for O2 UK, said: “We are pleased to be working with Volantis to offer its i-mode Express service to our content providers. The company is world class at delivering powerful and compelling i-mode solutions across Europe for some of the biggest brands. This service will help our content providers to deploy better and faster services for i-mode when we launch later this year.”
