SpinVox Makes Mobile Blogging a Reality For Over 200 Million Cellphone Users in North America

    Spin-my-Blog Converts Spoken Blog Entries to Text and Instantly Posts to
Blog Sites From Any Phone

    ORLANDO, FLA., March 27 /CNW/ - SpinVox, the world expert in
Voice-to-Screen(TM) messaging for consumer, enterprise and carrier markets,
today announced its newest Voice-to-Screen service, Spin-my-Blog(TM), in North
America. Spin-my-Blog is a mobile blogging service that allows bloggers to
instantly post spoken blog entries from anywhere. By simply using any phone to
call a designated Spin-my-Blog phone number, bloggers are automatically
connected to their blogs and their spoken entries are converted to text and
automatically posted on their blog sites live.

    Spin-my-Blog is a groundbreaking development for Web 2.0 - largely
characterized by the power it gives users to generate and share their own
content throughout the Web. With Spin-my-Blog, voice enters the blogosphere
for the first time and removes the tether of Internet or PC access in order to
interact with online communities and news groups.

    For businesses, Spin-my-Blog enables new and faster ways for
organizations to share ideas with their key audiences. For example, media
organizations can enable audiences to interact them from any phone, resulting
in real-time, universal citizen journalism. SpinVox is a natural interface
between online and mobile worlds, giving true mobility to Web 2.0 communities.
As a result, Spin-my-Blog allows people to share moments, ideas or experiences
in a shot.

    Christina Domecq, CEO of SpinVox, commented, "Spin-my-Blog is our latest
innovation in the Voice-to-Screen messaging category. Much more than just
posting photos or texting blog entries, Spin-my-Blog takes 'moblogging' to a
whole new level, enabling people to share laughter and life shots from their
mobile phones. They can stay in touch with family and friends in the broader
online community even when they're mobile."

    Spin-my-Blog is currently in carrier trials and is available as a free
trial for consumers at www.spinvox.com/blog. With SpinVox, carriers can serve
the in-demand community markets, building on their strong mobile service
brands through voice. Available from any mobile handset and network,
Spin-my-Blog makes mobile blogging easy. No upgrades or downloads are needed.
A select number of accounts are also being made available to bloggers
reporting from the CTIA Wireless show floor in Orlando.

    SpinVox announced its first U.S. carrier agreement with Cincinnati Bell
on Feb. 28 and separately announced its first Canadian carrier agreement with
SaskTel at the CTIA Wireless on March 27. SpinVox has also established deals
with Skype worldwide to create innovative next-generation voice-messaging
