e-SIM Expands MMI with Motorola's Internet Browser and MMS Client Bundle

11/12/2003 - e-SIM Ltd. (OTCBB: ESIM.OB), a leading provider of MMI (Man Machine Interface) solutions for wireless platform and device manufacturers, announced that they have enhanced their MMI Solution with additional bundled applications namely, Motorola Global Software Group's (GSG) Mobile Internet Browser (MIB) and MultiMedia Messaging System (MMS) client for mobile devices. With these applications now available, e-SIM augments its MMI Solution's comprehensiveness so that platform vendors, OEMs and ODMs can implement a full MMI with a one-time integration effort that leads to the smooth development of superior mobile devices.

e-SIM offers platform and device manufacturers an end-to-end MMI development solution that includes a complete reference design as well as RapidPLUSTM comprehensive development and customization tools with which MMI developers develop handsets' MMIs and automatically generate the C code to be embedded in the target device. Motorola GSG's Mobile Internet Browser is a multimode microbrowser that supports WAP, iMODE and xHTML. Its MMS client enables the delivery of a wide range of multimedia content and applications.

In addition to bundling Motorola's application with their MMI Solution, the agreement signed grants e-SIM the right to re-sell Motorola GSG's MMS client and its Mobile Internet Browser.

e-SIM's software is integrated with Motorola's application and provides the MMI layer for the MMS client and MIB. A clear separation between the MMI and the underlying applications enables complete freedom to change the MMI independently from the applications. This separation also ensures that changes to the handset's look and feel can be immediately and automatically applied to the MMI layer of the MMS client and the MIB, without having to alter the applications themselves, ensuring a uniform look and feel across the handset's MMI.

e-SIM and Motorola are planning to demonstrate the integrated solution at February 2004's 3GSM conference in Cannes.

Marc Belzberg, CEO of e-SIM Ltd. said that the distribution agreement between the companies "is part of e-SIM's policy to provide its customers with a complete, integrated, single-source MMI solution. The pre-integrated solution helps speed up MMI development time, enabling device manufacturers to bring advanced, feature-rich phones to market quickly. As part of our policy to provide the best available solutions to our customers, we are happy to team up with the leading developer of MMS clients and Mobile Browsers."

Amreesh Modi, Vice President, Systems Solutions and Products Division of Motorola GSG said, "With e-SIM, we expect to reach a wider customer base. Our mobile solutions include the latest features that mobile users demand, and together with e-SIM's MMI Solution provide device manufacturers a superior solution."
