Aspiro services delivered to Mobyson

Aspiro services delivered to Mobyson Aspiro announces today the agreement of delivering and hosting mobile Internet applications to Mobyson, a new Scandinavian mobile service operator. Mobyson, which is one of Swedish Startupfactory´s portfolio companies, aims to be one of the leading actors among the new generation of mobile operators by offering mobile entertainment services to the younger generation, age 17-32. "Among Aspiro´s portfolio of mobile Internet services, we have found several which perfectly fits into our concept of offering entertainment services to the young and mobile generation. Aspiro´s applications is an effective way for Mobyson to be able to offer our customers a wide assortment of services, which we do not need to host ourselves. There are good possibilities that we will order more Aspiro services in the future to launch on our entire European platform," says Jonas Kjellberg, CEO at Mobyson. The applications and their content will be built into the Mobyson's mobile portal and hosted at Aspiro, a type of outsourcing that is increasingly growing in popularity since it allows operators and portal owners to concentrate on their core businesses. The two year, non-exclusive deal comes close on the heels of a similar agreement signed early this year with Blu, a leading Italian GSM operator, as well as a distribution agreement with Nokia Networks OY, a subsidiary of Finnish telecoms giant Nokia. "We are presently in serious negotiations with a number of international operators regarding our applications and services," says Lena Wittbjer, CEO of Aspiro. "And we hope to be able to announce further agreements with new customers and partners in the very near future."
