MySpace Partners With T-Mobile

    September 20, 2007

T-Mobile USA, Danger, Inc., and MySpace announced today an integrated MySpace Mobile experience for the T-Mobile Sidekick. This is the first partnership between MySpace with T-Mobile and Danger.

"Sidekick users are often the hub of their circle of friends, and MySpace is the No. 1 Web site our users visit on their device," said Jeff Hopper, vice president of marketing at T-Mobile USA.

"We’ve worked closely with MySpace and Danger to create a powerful MySpace Mobile experience that is uniquely tailored for the T-Mobile Sidekick. We think MySpace and Sidekick users are going to love having complete control over their MySpace universe right from the palm of their hand."

The MySpace Mobile software is integrated with the T-Mobile Sidekick hardware, user interface, and all the applications on the device. The MySpace Mobile is designed to deliver data to each user and retain the features that MySpace users have on their PCs. All aspects of the MySpace mobile experience are designed so users can navigate on the T-Mobile Sidekick screen and have access to T-Mobile’s wireless network.

"Innovating on our mobile platform is one of the most important initiatives for us," said Amit Kapur, vice president of business development for MySpace.

"Given the high degree of MySpace and Sidekick usage overlap, we know our users will be thrilled to have this optimized experience."
