SEATTLE -- December 05, 2012

Radio Runt, a Seattle-based technology company focused on introducing
innovative communications solutions, today announced the launch of its new
free Rallee walkie-talkie app as well as a $1 million investment from
international business leader Kenges Rakishev.

As the voice layer for Facebook in the Google Play Androidmarketplace, the
app enables individuals and groups to talk in real time with Facebook friends
using a first-of-its-kind “push-to-talk” mobile technology platform with a
retro interface design. Rallee is now available for free download in the
Android marketplaces and on the Rallee website at and will
become available for iOS devices later this month.

The company, which is positioning Rallee to become the premier
group-centricaudio communications application for social and interest
networks, will use the financing and support from Rakishev to further build
out Rallee’s platform and support its expansion into other geographies

“Rallee will be a catalyst for individuals and organizations to create public
and private conversations among fans, friends, and members on Facebook – where
they can begin dialogues, voice their points of view, and host meetings – with
anywhere from one person to one million people at a time,” said Tony Bristol,
Radio Runt’s CEO, a Microsoft veteran noted in technology circles. "Rallee’s
push-to-talk and group voice messaging offer significant user benefits over
traditional text messaging, including enabling users to express emotions
through voice and communicate more quickly without having to spend time and
energy typing.”

Rallee was created by Bristol and other tech leaders with the goal of enabling
people with common social groups and/or interests to easily gather and engage
in conversations, as well as text and use multilingual transcriptions. Users
may enter a variety of voice-themed groups or create their own groups to hang
out, chat with friends and meet new people. Key features include:

  *Easy log-in: Users may simply log in using Facebook, invite friends to the
    service, and begin talking in real time with one or more friends at the
    same time.
  *Themed groups: Themed groups enable users to jump on voice chats with
    groups worldwide and talk about topics of interest.
  *Visibility: Users can easily see which of their friends are online and
    click their profile pics to begin chatting.
  *Geo-targeting: Rallee’s geo-location features enable users to find people
    nearby to meet and chat.
  *Random functionality: Rallee’s “Random Feature” enables users to connect
    with people interested in talking about random topics.

Rakishev, a noted international businessman currently investing in
leading-edge U.S. technology innovators, echoed Bristol’s enthusiasm: “Rallee
is an incredible concept with tremendous potential not only in the U.S. but
also in Russia and other Commonwealth of Independent States countries where
mobile usage is skyrocketing, and I plan to do my part to help introduce the
app in these regions and other emerging markets.”

Designated by Forbes as one of the 50 most influential people inKazakhstan
and also chairman of Net Element International (NASDAQ: NETE), Rakishev is
actively working to source technologies abroad and export them to Russia,
Kazakhstan and the Commonwealth of Independent States region. He recently
announced multi-million dollar investments into U.S.-based TriPlay, Mobli and
Net Element International (NASDAQ:NETE), and accepted an advisory board member
position at the Canada-based Sprylogics.
