YAPPA and EMOBILE to Form a Business Alliance
on the 3D Portal Interface Fields
Three-dimensional Menu Displays for Mobile Communication Terminals

YAPPA, a leading 3D technology company, (Head office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President: Masahiro Ito, hereinafter YAPPA), and EMOBILE Ltd., a telecom operator who entered into the mobile market for the first time in 13 years (Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director, Chairman & CEO: Sachio Semmoto; hereinafter "EMOBILE"), agreed to form an alliance in the new 3D portal interface field.

The alliance enables EMOBILE's new mobile communications terminal, "EM·;ONE," to browse and save large video and information files. EM·;ONE is considered to be the industry's first full-fledged "broadband mobile device". EM·;ONE uses YAPPA's 3D technology for its communication interface, which enables users to easily understand and operate due to enhanced data operability.

Thanks to YAPPA's technology, users of EM·;ONE will enjoy seamless and stress-free information browsing in the future.

Key features of YAPPA 3D technology

YAPPA utilizes world-class 3D technology, by displaying 3D images via mathematical formulas. Through the application of these unique formulas and algorithms, the technology lightly and quickly displays 3D images with a level of beauty similar to that of a graphical user interface on hardware.

*Visual operation possible through use of three-dimensional space
The 3D interface enables easy operation of the mobile communications device, and visual operability in a 3-dimensional space that is close to movement in real life.

*Utilization of pattern recognition ability and guesswork
By displaying various grouped images in "in-depth" three-dimensional space, moving, displaying and sorting image data through "pattern recognition" and "guesswork" can be easily done visually.

*Surface, color, light and perspective
Shape, color, light and perspective, and interface designs allow easy-to-use and ergonomic operations.

* EM·;ONE-user advantages provided by YAPPA

*Dramatically decreases time loss for information retrieval through the use of 3D interface
Users are able to browse for information without repeatedly opening or closing the interface.

*Users guide is not necessary
Available for a wide range of users with seamless and stress free operations

Based upon our motto, "Quick, easy and fun", we plan to develop technology and consulting for effective mobile life support in the future.

*About YAPPA
YAPPA was founded in 2000, and bought 3D web technology from 3Di Company in Israel. The technology allows 3D images to be displayed, not with specific installed software, but via mathematical formulas that no other developers have in the world. 3Di became a fully-owned subsidiary of YAPPA in 2001. YAPPA further developed the technology and is expanding into various fields, including the electronic printing and creation of interfaces using 3D technology. As a communications specialist, the company is aiming at technology development and reinforcement to help people around the world. We believe the value of the company is to directly help people, which lead to a greater contribution to society.

EMOBILE was established as a planning company in January 2005, and subsequently received a mobile license from the Ministry of Communications and Information. The license was awarded to a new operator for the first time in 12 years. Since the company received the license, EMOBILE has prepared to launch the mobile broadband service.
