BEDMINSTER, NJ and SEATTLE, WA — Verizon Wireless, the nation's leading wireless service provider, and Mobliss, Inc., a leading developer and distributor of mobile media, marketing and entertainment content, today announced the availability of The Price is RightTM CliffhangersTM on Verizon Wireless' Get It Now® service.
Based on the classic game show, The Price is Right Cliffhangers is as easy and exciting as the TV version. As players guess the retail price of three items, the yodeling mountaineer takes one step closer to the pinnacle for every dollar over or under the actual retail price. The fewer steps he takes, the higher the score! Keep your guesses close or it's down the mountain he tumbles! High scores are kept on a leaderboard so players can compare scores with other users nationwide.
"The launch of The Price is Right Cliffhangers on the Get It Now deck is the latest chapter in our long-standing and positive relationship with Verizon Wireless and its subscribers," said Brent Brookler, president of Mobliss' Games Division. "Our shared commitment to offer a variety of fun games and other diversions to Verizon Wireless' subscribers is emblematic of our broader commitment to put customers first in all phases of development."
The Price is Right Cliffhangers is produced by Mobliss in partnership with FremantleMedia Licensing Worldwide, the licensing division of leading international television production company FremantleMedia. Other Mobliss games available to Verizon Wireless subscribers include Family Feud, Muscle Car Mayhem, Wild West Blackjack, NY Times Crossword, and American Idol.

The full-color phone with built-in speakerphone and camera is perfect for multi-tasking and recording exciting moments. The price of the phone is just right: through October 11, 2004, the Audiovox CDM-8900 is available for $99.99 after a $70 rebate with a two-year customer agreement.
