Copenhagen, Denmark/ Berlin, Germany, 12 November 2009 – The Gedda-Headz Update 1.2 is now available. Along with the new multi-player mobile game Pløt4, which demands a knack for combination, concentration, and a quick eye, iPhone and iPod touch users can enjoy a detailed on-line arena, a new leader board design, and a menu update.
Owners of JAVA mobile phones without 3G and WiFi function, can now play in the on-line area at no cost via the PC Bridge (Version 1.2) – support has also been added for most Widcomm Bluetooth devices.
The overall look of the world map has been improved – users can now choose exactly what information they would like to obtain from the map, such as a friend’s status or level.
Thanks to the update, the abilities of the Headz can now also be improved off-line. In addition, the graphics for some games and the design of the main menu have been improved, new sounds have been added, and a new scaling has been performed for a variety of screen sizes.
Security has also been reworked – in order to increase users’ trust, the SMS authentification has been completely eliminated and all associated telephone numbers have been deleted.
The extra virtual treat for everyone: free Headz to test! For a short time, you can get hold of a free Head and become a member of the mobile games and entertainment community.

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.
