Versaly Games and Fictionwise Partner to Deliver eBooks to Mobile Phones
Versaly subscribers can access Fictionwise's library of popular eBooks

Seattle, WA & Chatham, NJ April 24, 2001 Versaly Games, Inc., a privately owned Seattle-based publisher and distributor of interactive games and entertaining content to mobile phones, today announced it has partnered with New Jersey-based Fictionwise.com, a leading independent eBook seller, to allow Versaly subscribers to download short fiction eBooks to their mobile phones.

Versaly has become an Affiliate Partner of Fictionwise and paid subscribers will have access to the Fictionwise library of eBooks from the Versaly website and next generation mobile phones, including the "Stinger" smartphone from Microsoft. Fictionwise currently offers over 500 award-winning and high quality eBooks by top authors such as Robert Silverberg, Larry Niven, Harlan Ellison, and Mike Resnick.

Versaly will securely distribute Fictionwise eBooks over the global 3G wireless telecommunications network to their subscribers. These eBooks will be read with Microsoft Reader on a large, full color mobile phone screen. "Entertainment on mobile phones includes much more than games. Versaly is working hard to provide our subscribers with as much quality content as possible to maximize the mobile phone entertainment experience. We realize the quality of our content is our advantage. Both daily commuters and weekend campers will enjoy this," said Matthew Feldman, Versaly's President and CEO.

"We are excited to be working with Versaly to enter the wireless market," said Scott Pendergrast, co-publisher of Fictionwise. "The new wireless phones offer an excellent opportunity to broaden our audience. We believe that our award-winning short fiction is a perfect fit for the mobile user."

While many companies are developing games on existing wireless application protocols (WAP) and phones with small black and white screens, Versaly is publishing electronic games, digital pictures, audio and video clips, short fiction, cartoons, and other content for next-generation mobile phones, including the "Stinger" smartphone from Microsoft, with large 16 bit color graphical screens and high-speed, always-on Internet connections. .
