ORB'S FREE MYCASTING LETS MOBILE PHONE USERS ENJOY MEDIA.

Orb Networks, Emeryville, Calif., has announced that the 140 million people worldwide who already own streaming media phones have an alternative to get all of their digital media on the go without paying the hefty price tag of the Apple iPhone.

A simple download of the free Orb MyCasting service (www.orb.com) provides unlimited access to all the music, photos, and other digital media that's on your PC, as well as anything from the Internet including all of YouTube, TV shows and more, on your mobile phone.

"Let's face it, the iPhone is going to be out of reach for most people," said Joe Costello, Chairman and CEO of Orb Networks. "But if you download a free copy of Orb onto your PC, anything you can play on your computer, you can play on any phone that has a streaming media player. That turns 140 million phones -- models from all major handset makers, and all major carriers -- into media phones. Orb is the media phone for the rest of us."

Costello went on to say that using a streaming media phone with Orb's free service allows you to access an unlimited number of Internet videos, such as on YouTube, without any limitations and offers other advantages. "The iPhone handcuffs you to AT&T and iTunes. Using your own phone with Orb, you have the freedom to select any service provider and music source -- you are in control."
