i3 Mobile and ESPN hatch alliance to give users audio highlights

Di3 Mobile Inc. a premium wireless media content and service provider in America and ESPN which claims to be The Worldwide Leader in Sports have announced an agreement to offer ESPN Radio SportsCenter audio reports updated every 20 minutes directly to Pronto users across America from 28 June.

To receive ESPN Radio SportsCenter reports, subscribers can call Pronto and say, "Get me the top sports headlines," to hear ESPN anchors deliver the latest sports news updates. Sports fans can now stay up to the minute on the World Cup -- or get any other sports news all with one call to Pronto. The alliance fits in with ESPN's strategy to reach sports fans whenever, wherever an official release informs.

Pronto is a premium monthly subscription service that works on any phone with any calling plan. Pronto delivers information and service 24 hours a day, with live operators that are available to provide detailed answers for more complicated inquiries. Pronto users can also send e-mails with just the sound of their voice and access virtually any information they need just by asking -- from stock quotes, weather reports, driving directions and airline schedules.

The agreement with ESPN follows recent announcements that Wall Street Journal business and market reports as well as CNN news business updates, are also available from Pronto. The addition of ESPN gives Pronto users 24/7 access to news and information from the world's leading news and sports brands.
