and Partnership with The Carphone Warehouse

Vringo's President, Andrew Perlman, Discusses Vringo's Initiatives in the U.K. and Recently Embedded Service in the New 'INQ Cloud Touch' Social Smartphone

NEW YORK, May 27, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Vringo, Inc. (NYSE Amex: VRNG), a provider of software platforms for mobile video applications and video ringtones, today announces the release of an online video about its initiatives in the U.K. market presented by Vringo's President, Andrew Perlman.

The video provides an overview of Vringo's mobile operator partnerships in the U.K. and its recently embedded video ringtone service in the new 'INQ Cloud Touch' social smartphone available only through The Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy U.K.

In the video, Mr. Perlman states, "In the U.K. we've taken a very broad approach. We first launched with Everything Everywhere, which is the biggest mobile operator in the U.K. market."

Mr. Perlman continued, "We also have a very big partnership with the retailer The Carphone Warehouse, which is 50% owned by Best Buy."

Mr. Perlman concluded the video by discussing Vringo's embedded service on the 'INQ Cloud Touch' social smartphone. He stated, "The INQ phone has been known as the 'Facebook Phone' because of the demographic it is targeting and we think the users of that device will also love the Vringo service. So we really look forward to deploying this with The Carphone Warehouse and widening the reach of our application and service."

Vringo's video ringtone app will be the first such platform embedded on Android mobile handsets in the U.K. and will be available to consumers when they start using their new phones. Vringo believes its agreement with The Carphone Warehouse, which is U.K.'s largest independent mobile phone retailer, will further support the introduction of Vringo's video ringtone platform as well as its recently-announced launch of its paid service with Orange.
