HandHeld Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZVUE, ZVUEW) a global digital-media-to-go company, today announced the acquisition of UnOriginal.co.uk™ for $500,000 ($250,000 in cash payable over the next 15 months and $250,000 of HandHeld Entertainment’s restricted common stock based on the average closing price in the five days prior to the closing or 92,456 common shares).

UnOriginal.co.uk is an editor-directed Website focused on user-generated media that is highly optimized for searches and consistently garners top 10 organic search results on Google for the term “funny videos.” Launched in September 2004, UnOriginal.co.uk provides user-submitted and user-generated videos, pictures and games, attracts close to 900,000 unique visitors per month and has had more than 82 million page views since its launch.

UnOriginal.co.uk is the third company HandHeld Entertainment has acquired in Europe, following the acquisition of Putfile.com™ in February 2007 and YourDailyMedia.com™ in December 2006. HandHeld Entertainment has now acquired a total of five companies, each focused on delivering user-generated videos and other media to consumers around the world.

“With the acquisition of UnOriginal.co.uk, HandHeld Entertainment now has three Web sites based in Europe, with two of those sites based in England, making us one of the top providers of user-generated comedy content in the United Kingdom and Europe,” said Jeff Oscodar, president and chief executive officer of HandHeld Entertainment. “This acquisition represents another step toward reaching our goal of becoming a global media company that provides great content to 18-35 years olds around the world. Additionally, we believe that we can easily leverage our library of more than 500,000 user-generated videos and other media to dramatically expand the library at UnOriginal.co.uk, making it even more attractive to visitors throughout Europe, as well as the rest of the world.”

“The crazy, fun videos found on UnOriginal.co.uk are the perfect fit for those users who already frequent the HandHeld network of Web sites,” said Gareth Coote, founder of UnOriginal.co.uk. “UnOriginal.co.uk is already a leading aggregator for funny videos on the Internet. By joining the HandHeld Entertainment network of Web sites, we will be able to provide hours of laughs for an even larger audience and provide great content for people across the globe.”
