SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- October 15, 2012

MHL, LLC today announced a new online destination for savvy consumers ready to
take mobile gaming and computing to the big screen. With a first-of-its-kind
curated list of “Featured Apps and Games,” the Meet MHL website is the premier
place for consumers ready for the next phase in mobile - using their TVs,
projectors and PC monitors to display exciting content from their mobile

The new website provides a complete overview of MHL technology, including:

  *15 Android-based mobile games and apps that have been tested to deliver a
    great ”mobile-to-big screen” experience – best picture, great sound and a
    user interface that lends itself to the big screen;
  *A list of MHL products available on the market today and where to buy
  *And a simple guide to connecting an MHL mobile device to a TV.

Consumers spend, on average, 17 minutes on a smartphone, 30 minutes on a
tablet, 39 minutes on a PC/laptop and 43 minutes on a TV (Source:
Google/Ipsos/Sterling, 2012). Going to the big screen drives a deeper and
longer engagement with consumers. MHL, as a high quality connectivity
solution, offers the big screen experience from an MHL phone.

The initial titles in MHL’s “Featured Apps and Games” page are a great source
for fun and engaging mobile experiences that are ideally suited for the big
screen. The page links consumers to Google Play and other stores where they
can download the apps and games directly to their MHL mobile devices.

“With billions of smartphones and tablets shipped in the past few years,
consumers have spoken – mobile devices are the indisputable computing
platforms of choice,” said Judy Chen, president of MHL, LLC. “Now, people are
looking for new, effortless ways to get the most out of their devices and
further integrate them into their daily routines.”

The newly launched consumer website provides a unique opportunity to present
content to the millions of consumers with MHL-enabled devices. Projecting to a
larger screen leads to a longer engagement, taking advantage of the great
graphics and sound in today’s top apps. Additionally, inherent to MHL is the
ability to simultaneously charge the phone’s battery, supporting longer use of
top mobile content. Any developers interested in working with MHL to feature
their games or apps should contact

The initial launch titles include games from Big Fish Games and Glu Mobile, as
well as games from developers across the thriving Android ecosystem.
