Emoze launches a dedicated mobile soccer application for the largest international soccer tournament in Africa
AFRICOM, Cape Town South Africa, 11 November 2009 – Emoze, the worlds leading ‘push’ mobile solutions provider, has come up with another industry first introducing a ‘pushed’ content solution in preparation for the most exciting event to be held next year in the African continent.

The new downloadable application will cost just $5 (one time payment) and will provide international football news daily from now until after the tournament’s final in July.

The client will feature ‘pushed’ real time soccer updates and news, player of the day pictures (in html format), game venues, scores and of course full tables of the team groups. The opening splash screen features a real-time countdown to the big games in South Africa, and then once the tournament starts, countdowns to individual games – football fans need never miss a second of the action no matter where they are or what they are doing.

The Soccer Updater is available worldwide and can be downloaded on any Symbian or Windows mobile handset, with Java phones to follow shortly. So before the tension reaches fever pitch download it now at:

Emoze CEO, Eitan Linker, said: “This is emoze’s first ‘push’ content solution and we have several more content based applications in the pipeline. Consumers increasingly want tailored content on the go, delivered directly to the handset, where they can find it in one click. Our service gives the best user experience to the consumer with a combination of data and pictures. It’s easy to install, easy to use and info you won’t be able to do without – all in real-time. Yet another example that emoze is not just a technology, but a way of life! With the 2010 tournament fever building throughout the world this is a great value added service and the natural evolution of the ‘push’ experience.”
