The highly respected Nilsson, along with the growing list of members and participants, attests to the fact that OMTP has rapidly attracted considerable support for its work from a wide spectrum of leading players within the mobile industry.

The OMTP group's focus is to provide customers with a more consistent and improved user experience across different devices, whilst also enabling individual operators and manufacturers to customise and differentiate their offering.  The new participants, representing companies from Europe, USA and Asia, have significant expertise in relevant areas and have already become involved in projects commissioned by OMTP.

The Board welcomed the new Participants and looks forward to their active support in the OMTP group's efforts. Commented Mats Nilsson: "2005 promises to be a particularly exciting year for the OMTP group.  We are now positioned – thanks to our new and existing members and participants – as a real centre of influence in the mobile community and we expect the benefits of our work to begin having an impact on the mobile consumer over the coming months."
