The first thing we have is a nice endorsement of our Windows Live mobile services in Latam where Telefonica Latin America has announced that they are adopting our services in 12 countries. This deal is for WAP browser based services, including Hotmail, Messenger, Contacts and Spaces so that means that they work on pretty much any data enabled phone under Telefonica’s movistar brand. The rollout should begin next month and will happen in a phased approach for the 12 countries that include Chile, Mexico, Argentina, El Salvador, Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Venezuela, Colombia, Uruguay and Peru. Associated with this is an extension to the deal where Telefonica has also agreed to deploy MSN Mobile in Venezuela and Mexico as well.
第二个更新就是 Windows Live Mobile 开发者项目，我们之前已经谈及了。我在这里需要补充的是，Phil 让我们知道微软现在已经拥有超过 70 家 ISV 合作伙伴正在开发超过 800 个Windows Live 移动应用。
On the syndication side we are announcing that a number of new mobile publishers have chosen Microsoft Advertising Platform Services team to syndicate display ads on their mobile sites. Publishers include Disney mobile in the United Kingdom, L’Equipe, Boursier.com, and Autonews in France; and Orange in Spain. Then we have MSN Mobile where they were a number of new advertisers signed up including Nike, Coca Cola, Voyages-sncf.com (VSC), Jean-Paul Gaultier perfume, and Pages Juanes in France, and Saturn, Best Buy and Verizon Communications in the US.
