SendMe Mobile Works With Corbis to Roll Out the Red Carpet for Mobile Phone Users
SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 11, 2007) - SendMe Mobile, the premier mobile media company, and Corbis (www.corbis.com), a creative resource for advertising, marketing and media professionals, today announced that they are partnering to bring the red carpet to mobile phones users. A first-of-its-kind offering for consumers, the relationship will provide SendMeMobile.com members with access to images from the Corbis Entertainment collection.
