OTTAWA -- ZIM (OTCBB: ZIMCF), a leading mobile consumer and enterprise application developer for the global two-way SMS (Short Message Service) channel, today announced that three of its wireless products have been selected by Singapore's fastest growing carrier, StarHub, for introduction to its customer base. The products, to be called StarHub SMS Office (Standard and Enterprise Editions) and StarHub SMS Mail, feature wireless e-mail connectivity through SMS text messaging and are designed to offer similar functionality to 'Blackberry-like' devices by using a software- only solution to virtually any mobile phone. Product rollout is planned to begin in January 2004.

"We are thrilled to have been selected by a carrier like StarHub, operating in one of the most advanced SMS markets in the world," said Dr. Michael Cowpland, President and CEO of ZIM. "This agreement validates our global carrier strategy. It also demonstrates the value of wireless solutions that link the desktop with any mobile phone."

StarHub SMS Mail, the entry level product, allows e-mail forwarding from any POP 3 account to a mobile phone with reply capabilities. StarHub SMS Office Standard Edition, designed for the Microsoft(R) Outlook(R) environment, allows users not only to receive, reply to and forward e-mail, but also integrates reminders and calendar items too. The more advanced version, StarHub SMS Office Enterprise Edition, is designed for a networked environment. It also includes real-time 'to phone' meeting invitations and uses a host of phone initiated on-demand commands for maximum connectivity and productivity.
