LOS ANGELES, November 9, 2009 – Mobile-XL, a thriving mobile technology company, today announced the highly anticipated official nationwide launch of its XLBrowser (branded XL Live in Cameroon) in Cameroon by Orange, the leading telecommunications company operating in Cameroon.

At the nationally-televised launch ceremony, CEO Kamgaing-Kouam, a native of Cameroon, now a US citizen living in California, spoke to local press at a University forum on new media: “I am extremely proud to be able to bring the XLBrowser to Cameroon. Living in the US, one of the most developed economies in the world, we understand just how critical access to information has become and its power for creating significant opportunity. It’s amazing to witness how the XLBrowser service is unleashing the potential of so many mobile consumers. We are poised and excited for our future expansion throughout Africa and other emerging markets where the internet remains out of reach for the masses. It is truly a privilege to bring something this valuable back to my native country with Orange as a partner.”

According to Valerie Tiacoh, Chief Marketing Officer, Orange Cameroon, “This is an exciting launch for Orange, Mobile-XL and the people of Cameroon. We expect the XLBrowser will revolutionize the way people access information on their mobile devices and we are proud to be the first to bring this service to the people of Cameroon. The benefits are clear and endless: people will finally have the same level of access to information that the rest of the world takes for granted and in a convenient and affordable way.  But more importantly, with this partnership, we are incentivizing our customers to get involved and help us build the digital content ecosystem that will ultimately benefit all Cameroonian citizens.”

Mobile-XL’s XLBrowser, a proprietary mobile software application, is a revolutionary, yet affordable, mobile phone application that utilizes SMS to provide instant access to valuable global and local information, entertainment and social networking to anyone, anywhere, using any mobile phone.
