VANCOUVER, British Columbia — AirG Powers Canada’s First Java Mobile Community on Bell Canada’s 1X Network

Multilingual, multiplayer, multi-feature mobile entertainment now available in the Blue Lounge and Salon Bleu. AirG, the global leader in powering mobile communities announces the premier launch of its mobile community in Canada as Blue Lounge and Salon Bleu, available exclusively on Bell Canada’s 1X network, Canada’s largest digital voice and data network. Blue Lounge/Salon Bleu is Canada’s first interactive and feature rich Java mobile community, and connects Bell’s mobile users with some of the most fascinating people from across Canada and around the world in a bilingual messaging environment – all through their mobile phone.

“Bell Canada is the first Canadian carrier to launch our flagship private-labelled mobile community product in both the French and English languages,” said Frederick Ghahramani, Director, AirG. “We look forward to taking mobile chatters on Bell’s 1X network to the next level of interactive, online mobile entertainment by enabling them to join the world’s largest mobile community through Blue Lounge and Salon Bleu.”

AirG will provide an end-to-end mobile community solution for Blue Lounge/Salon Bleu in both French and English that incorporates multiple features such as instant messaging, picture profiles, public and private messaging lounges, fun promotions and contests, and 24x7x365 monitoring.

Added Ghahramani: “One of the unique features of Blue Lounge/Salon Bleu that sets it apart is that it is a genuine user-created mobile community that enables mobile users to create and store their own profile, friends and contacts lists within the application, which keeps them coming back again and again.”

Blue Lounge/Salon Bleu is available to all Bell Canada customers with wireless web enabled handsets and is free for the first 30 days. Entering the Blue Lounge/Salon Bleu is fast and simple. Bell Canada customers can access Blue Lounge/Salon Bleu from their Java-enabled mobile phone directly from the Mobile Web menu under Chat and Messaging.
