Holiday boredom is a thing of the past

- For immediate publication -

Copenhagen, Denmark/ Berlin, Germany, 22 December 2009– The mobile gaming and entertainment community Gedda-Headz offers a real change of pace to their community members and every fan of mobile multi-player games, social networking, collecting 2.0, and music during the peaceful holiday season.

As of now, those who need action among the mulled wine, Christmas goose, and reverent mood and still don’t have a Head on their JAVA mobile phones will receive a free‘paperhead’– thanks to Update 1.3– immediately upon registering at www.geddaheadz. com. Everyone can start playing right away by entering a user name and password. The e-mail address can be added to the profile later.

Along with many other improvements, a ranking system has been introduced. From newbie status on registering, players can upgrade to junior and senior and on to Gedda-Headz master. The awards achieved are displayed in the profile. As an extra Christmas treat with the update, all Headz will stay energized and can continue battling with undiminished strength.

But wait, there’s more– the range of games has also been expanded: Street Hockey, so far available on JAVA mobiles, will be downloadable for iPhone and iPod touch within this month. The new update 1.3 is already on its way to the AppStore.

Along with exciting games, the users can chat with friends using the Gedda-Headz software– data communication has also been optimised in the update. Thus, everyone can stay in touch with friends and swap ideas via 3G or WiFi despite Christmas visits with distant relatives.

Features of the Gedda-Headz community:

• Social networking/ message exchange/ chatting

• Localisation software

• Free mobile multi-player games

• Collect 36 Headz with a variety of characteristics

• Communication and games between newer JAVA mobile phones and iPhone/ iPod touch possible

About Gedda-Headz

Gedda-Headz GmbH, from Berlin, Germany, was founded in 2009 and is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. The basic idea by founder and CEO Ulrik Jensen was to develop a collectible street style, which appeals to today’s youth and their mobile phones: collecting 2.0. He implemented the entire concept with Professor Frank Fitzek, PhD., specialist for mobile applications, and a top programming team from Berlin-based acticom GmbH.

Also under the management of Ulrik Jensen is the record label Gedda Records, based in Los Angeles, whose band Gedda-Headz published their first single on 1 August 2009. The band consists of three members– Jasper, Frank, and Zoe– from Los Angeles and New York, and the band manager Jankel. Their real identity will be secret at first; they want to use their masks to call attention to the central message of Gedda-Headz‘It’s cool to care’ and challenge young people to show more respect for themselves and others.
