NEW YORK - January 30, 2006 - Bravo has entered into the mobile phone market with the launch of Bravo To Go, which will include two online mobile storefronts for the acclaimed original series "Project Runway" and "Queer Eye."

Take Heidi Klum on the go and choose between the "Project Runway" theme song and the supermodel's famous words, "Are You In Or Out," or make their ringtones fabulous with the "Queer Eye" theme song, "All Things Just Keep Getting Better," by Widelife with Simone Denny.

Mobile phone users can also give their cell phones a makeover with a selection of "Project Runway" and "Queer Eye" wallpaper for $1.99. Whether it's Heidi Klum's smile or a Fab Five group shot, it's guaranteed high-phone-fashion and style for the consumer.

The mobile storefronts will be live on BravoTV.com and powered by iLoop Mobile, Inc., a mobile application software company that allows content owners to create, connect, and control text-based SMS mobile marketing campaigns and web and WAP mobile storefronts.
