MightyBackup Named Gold Star Winner for Best Consumer Mobile Data Backup Product

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov 03, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- FusionOne, a leading provider of mobile content portability solutions, today announced that it has won a Gold Mobile Star Award(TM) from MobileVillage(R), the 15-year leader in market development and news services about mobile technology.

The seventh annual Mobile Star Awards(TM) program honors and promotes the top companies, products, deployments, and leaders in mobile and wireless technology. Winners are chosen by subscribers to Go Mobile(R), MobileVillage's free email newsletter sent to technology executives, mobile professionals, IT managers, developers, and top tech journalists.
FusionOne's MightyBackup has been recognized with the Gold Mobile Star Award in the category of Consumer Software: Data Backup.

"Despite the economic slowdown, recent studies have predicted minimal impact on the mobile and wireless industry," says MobileVillage Editor Gary Thayer. "People have fallen in love with mobile productivity and entertainment products, and there's a real desire to discover and share the latest and greatest. This year we had a record 2,300 votes from MobileVillage readers who are eager to share their knowledge. There's definitely a need for a good consumer data backup product to help people move their content to the latest mobile devices."

"We are pleased to receive this honor from MobileVillage," said Mohan Sadashiva, senior vice president of marketing at FusionOne. "This award is especially meaningful as it reflects the regard and appreciation that insiders and experts in the mobile industry have for our solution."

MightyBackup is FusionOne's mobile content backup and portability solution. It allows mobile carriers to offer to their subscribers protection against address book and user-generated content data loss. It also enables carriers and content developers to preserve and grow revenue streams derived from sales of purchased and licensed content.
