Universal Mobile Inks Mexico Deal

Uni Links With leading wireless provider Telcel

Universal Mobile, a division of Universal Music International, has signed a deal with Telcel, the leading provider of wireless services in Mexico. The non-exclusive arrangement calls for Universal Mobile to provide an array of content-such as ringtones, wallpaper, videos and games-to Telcel, which claims 22 million users.

This is Universal's first such partnership in Latin America, but the company says it plans to venture into other major markets in the region this year.
