Movaya and Kingston Technology Partner to Launch
Free Mobile Game of the Day on Mobile Phone Village


Seattle, Wash. & Fountain Valley, Calif. -- December 17, 2008 -- Movaya, a market leader in mobile content distribution and Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, announced today the launch of a free daily game download for mobile consumers on Kingston.com’s Mobile Phone Village microsite.

Consumers who visit Mobile Phone Village will be treated to a free Mobile Game of the Day from BustedThumbs.com, a provider of mobile content. The offering uses Movaya’s TryNBuy technology; consumers simply enter their phone number to have the games sent over the air to their phone.

“Working with Kingston®, Movaya is providing mobile consumers an easy way to try out hit mobile games with our daily download," said Phil Yerkes, CEO, Movaya. “Our catalog of games includes all possible genres so there is something for everyone. And, as consumers download more rich content to their mobile devices, they will need increased memory on their phones.”

“This is a terrific opportunity for consumers to expand the functionality of their mobile phones using free games,” said Wendy Lecot, Flash business development manager, Kingston. “Our mobile memory product line provides extra capacity for lots of entertaining content including mobile games, music and applications. Our continued partnership with Movaya is a key component in our plans to expand Kingston’s Mobile Phone Village microsite. We envision the Mobile Phone Village as a destination for compelling content and storage to enhance a person’s mobile lifestyle.”
