LONDON & LITTLETON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Livewire Mobile (otcmarkets: LVWR), a leader in end-to-end managed mobile entertainment solutions for network operators and consumer device manufacturers, has been named a finalist for Best Music Service Provider at this year's Mobile Entertainment Awards.

"In 2013, Livewire Mobile continues to shake up the digital music business with the success of our Unlimited Music service, Siren at Public Mobile, now one of the most significant music subscription services in the Canadian market, and the expanded presence of our music discovery application, Rumpus, which is currently showcased on Sprint's Entertain Me application for Android smartphones.
"Furthermore, our pioneering ringback service, MyCaller®, which is in service at six of the top ten US Operators, continues to be a huge success for Livewire Mobile around the world and remains one of the unsung revenue drivers for music services," said Mr. Stecker.
