Paris, France – 7th February 2008 – Miyowa, a world leader in mobile instant messaging client software, today announced the launch of InTouch 5TM - the world’s first community and entertainment solution for the converging mobile operator.

The InTouch 5 solution capitalises on Miyowa’s strengths in the community and messaging field. InTouch 5 extends the offering from mobile to include support across fixed telephony, internet, TV and interactive gaming platforms making it a complete QuadPlay + 1 solution.

InTouch 5 puts the operator firmly at the heart of the evolving mobile ecosystem, by providing them with control of the complete mobile community (QuadPlay) and entertainment (+1) experience.
