U.S. Starcom Launches Mobile Digital Entertainment Targeted To Latino Market

Lake Harmony, Pa. -- 10/13/05 -- - U.S. Starcom, Inc, (Pink Sheets: USTA) a leading provider of valued added prepaid services and solutions to the urban market, has teamed with Zamia Group, LLC, a mobile digital entertainment provider specializing in niche markets, to distribute Latino ringtones and other mobile digital entertainment through its extensive urban distribution network in the US and Mexico.

The digital content, distributed under Zamia's Sabormobilâ„¢ brand, will be marketed via print advertisements on phone cards, flyers, posters, web sites and other media and sold via premium SMS messaging.

To purchase a ringtone, wallpaper image or mobile game, consumers need only to send a text message from their mobile phone that correlates with the digital content they wish to purchase. The content is delivered to their phone within minutes and they are billed by their carrier for the service.
"Having a mobile digital entertainment partner that is geared to the Latino market is exciting for us because it enables us to deliver an important, fast emerging value-added service to the urban base we serve," notes John DiDomenico, U.S. Starcom president and CEO. "We see mobile digital content as a natural extension to the numerous communication products we offer."

While U.S. Starcom will initially deliver the Latino digital content via a carrier billing platform that enables consumers to instantly access the digital content of their choice, the company also plans to offer the mobile digital content on a prepaid basis once consumer awareness has been established.

Ingrid Ricks, Zamia Group Principal and Co-Founder, says her company is excited about the alliance with U.S. Starcom, which enables Zamia to quickly introduce the Sabormobilâ„¢ brand into the urban marketplace.
"We view this alliance as a win-win that leverages each company's strengths and enables us to quickly deliver a great service to the Latino market, and we look forward to working with U.S. Starcom."
