Hands-On Mobile (formerly MFORMA) has been selected as a winner in the Top 100 Private Company Awards by AlwaysOn, recognising and rewarding the firm's successes and potential for growth and industry excellence in the emerging technologies market.

Handpicked by the AlwaysOn editorial panel, the listing is based on a set of five criteria: Technology Innovation, Market Potential, Customer Adoption, Media Buzz and Investor Value Creation.

Jonathan Sacks, Hands-On Mobile's president and CEO, commented: "We are thrilled to be chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the Top 100 Private Company award winners. Hands-On Mobile's expertise in developing and distributing mobile entertainment, unrivalled global distribution capabilities, and our determination to deliver entertaining and empowering content to our customer's fingertips puts us at the forefront of the mobile entertainment industry."

Selected from more than 1,000 companies, the AO100 are peer nominated by leading venture capitalists, investment bankers and industry analysts. Winners will be honoured as part of the AO2006: Stanford Summit, which is scheduled to run over two days from July 25-27, at the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Centre on the Stanford University campus in Palo Alto, California.

"The AO100 companies are driving the next wave of innovative technologies that are disrupting the old guard and shaping the new media landscape," added Tony Perkins, founder of AlwaysOn.

"As ever, we were inundated with nominations from leading companies, and it's heartening to know that tomorrow's thought leaders and technology visionaries are already out there. My congratulations to each AO100 winner - these are the companies which we predict will have the greatest market traction, strongest innovation and most game-changing approaches this year."

Hands-On was selected for its development and publishing of cutting edge community-based entertainment products and leading multi-player technology used in titles such as World Poker Tour Texas Hold'em.
