Arrow Vodafone Live! to offer MySpace, eBay, YouTube, Google Maps and CitiBank services

MySpace.com, the world's leading lifestyle portal, and Vodafone announced today an exclusive partnership to offer Vodafone customers a MySpace experience via their mobile phones. The deal marks the first extension of Fox Interactive Media's leading network of sites into the European mobile marketplace.

Launching first in the UK, the partnership will enable millions of Vodafone customers to access MySpace Mobile, allowing them to edit their own MySpace profiles, find and add friends, post photos and blogs and send and receive MySpace messages while on the move.

MySpace Mobile will be pre-loaded on future, selected Vodafone handsets to offer customers an 'out of the box' experience, and available for download from Vodafone live!.

Also, Vodafone is to offer the new eBay mobile service to customers, enabling them to keep up with their latest purchases, wherever they are and whenever they wish. The eBay application will be free to download on Vodafone live! or embedded on key customer Vodafone handsets. Launching in Italy initially, the new eBay mobile service will be available across Europe later this year.

The eBay mobile application, accessed directly from the customerís handset, will include the ability to search and browse items, find deals, bid on items and buy fixed price products. The application will be embedded onto key consumer handsets from Vodafone in the future. Customers with compatible handsets will also be able to download the application from Vodafone live! The application will help consumers track their eBay activity in real time on their phone and will also ensure their mobile and web activity is synchronized.

Vodafone, announced an agreement with YouTube to offer Vodafone customers a YouTube experience on their mobile phones.

Launching in the UK initially, the agreement is expected to offer Vodafone customers in key markets across Europe the chance to access a version of the popular YouTube service directly from Vodafone live!

As part of the service, YouTube will provide a daily selection of new videos providing Vodafone customers with the entertaining experience they've come to expect from YouTube. Customers can forward links for their favourite videos to friends and family, upload their own content from their mobile phones and search across multiple categories.

Vodafone and Google intend to develop a location-based version of Google Maps for mobile to add to the growing portfolio of internet-based services that are enhancing the mobile experience for Vodafone customers.

Google Maps for mobile, a downloadable java application, is expected to offer customers in selected markets easy-to-use maps and local listings, as well as local search and navigation capabilities. Customers will be able to enjoy unlimited use of Google Maps for mobile, subject to Vodafone data tariffs.

Google and Vodafone are working together to ensure the service provides customers on selected handsets with an automatic user-location capability.

Vodafone and Citigroup Corporate and Investment Bankingís Global Transaction Services business today announce their plan to launch a Vodafone-branded mobile-based international money transfer service targeting the global remittance market worldwide. The new service will provide senders and receivers of money with a superior method for sending money home that is convenient, cost-effective, secure, transparent, and easy to use.

This initiative couples Vodafoneís global reach, brand recognition and operational mobile money transfer service with Citigroupís worldwide network, unrivalled international payments capabilities and existing global remittance solution. It builds upon Vodafoneís recent successful pilot of the M-PESA mobile money transfer service by its affiliate in Kenya, Safaricom.

It is anticipated that Vodafone customers in the United Kingdom will have the first opportunity to use the service to send money to Kenya on a trial basis and both parties plan to launch commercially, with a focus on Eastern European and Asian markets, such as Poland and India, in the near future.
