News for the Hospitality Executive
DENVER, CO – June 23, 2009 – Roomlinx, Inc. (OTC: RMLX), the innovative supplier of hospitality in-room Interactive TV products, today announced IBM will include Roomlinx as the in-room entertainment provider for IBM’s “Hotel-in-a-Box” (HIB) solution. Roomlinx also announced it is an approved supplier of Interactive TV for InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG). HIB is a Hospitality Industry pioneering approach designed in conjunction with IHG that combines leading technology companies, working as a team, to deliver a unified, holistic operational and guest services solution with the trusted and proven commitment of IBM Corporation.
IHG recognizes that guests desire more than a simple TV programming experience in their rooms and worked with IBM to provide a new and differentiated assortment of IPTV services and HD content offerings currently lacking from legacy suppliers.

Roomlinx can install their Interactive TV product into any size hotel, which is a new concept for the Hospitality Industry.
“Roomlinx appreciates that both IBM and IHG recognize our efforts to create a platform that is flexible and embraces innovation, but also meets the reality of today’s marketplace where guests want the HDTV in their rooms to offer a broad range of services,” said Roomlinx CEO Mike Wasik. “The hotel industry today must be much more dynamic and offer guests both stored content and Internet services. We are honored and excited to be working with a technology giant like IBM, and the world’s largest hotel group by number of rooms, to provide industry-leading solutions. It is my commitment to focus Roomlinx as a Hospitality Industry leader and reshape how guests are served.”
