DENVER--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Less than two weeks after releasing its first app for iPhone, Archstone
– a leader in apartment operations, investment and development – announced today that it has launched a mobile-
friendly version of its website,

The mobile-friendly, which went live Oct. 28, empowers customers looking for an
apartment home to browse communities, review floor plans and retrieve real-time pricing and availability with ease
on their mobile devices.

“We are focused on continuing to be the easiest apartment company to work with in the industry,” said Dan
Amedro, Archstone’s chief information officer. “The mobile website is a natural extension of that vision. Now
customers searching for an apartment home can easily browse and view the incredible locations, features and
amenities that our fantastic communities have to offer while on the go."

The mobile website, which simplifies while retaining many of the most-used features of the full website, is compatible
with most popular mobile phones, platforms and devices — including Android, Blackberry, iPhone and iPod Touch.

“If you're as busy as most of our customers, you don't always have time to plan out your search for a new apartment
before you leave your home or office,” said Donald Davidoff, group vice president and head of marketing for
Archstone. “The mobile website allows customers to do the searching while already in their favorite neighborhood.
That's the power of mobile and how our mobile site makes doing business with Archstone easier.” 

Customers who visit through a mobile device will be automatically redirected to the
mobile-friendly version of the site, which can also be accessed by going to on any
Internet browser.

The release of the mobile website comes on the heels of the launch of Archstone's app for iPhone, which makes it
easy for residents to pay rent, submit service requests, review their account histories and more from the palms of
their hands. Archstone is the first apartment operator to release a resident-based mobile application that allows
residents to complete the important transactions and interact with their community management teams.

The mobile technologies fit well into Archstone's long history of leading the progress of the apartment industry
through the introduction of several other industry firsts. In addition to being the first to offer the convenience of
paying rent, leasing and renewing online, the company was the first to introduce web-based instant application
screening and the first to launch a sophisticated revenue management platform (Lease Rent Options).
