NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 10, 2012) - AirTouch® Communications (OTCQB: ATCH) (OTCBB: ATCH) (www.airtouchinc.com), a supplier of innovative wireless telecommunications devices, has announced that GetWireless, LLC, a cellular solutions distributor, will feature the Company's SmartLinX™ "super router" that enables smartphone users to "keep the cord" or landline, enhancing the signal quality of calls amongst other benefits.
"Our agreement with GetWireless marks the second distribution contract recently signed with a major distributor of innovative wireless telecommunications devices, having previously announced our products being sold by TeleDynamics, a major wholesale distributor of consumer electronics and telecommunications equipment," stated AirTouch CEO Hide Kanakubo. "Twenty-five million cordless phones are sold each year. In our estimation, the SmartLinX™ product provides consumers with a unique solution to replace these phones, adding a new, innovative technology aspect to the cordless telephone industry. The beauty of the SmartLinX™ technology is that your smartphone functions as your cordless phone handset."
Mr. Kanakubo continued, "AirTouch products are the perfect tool for customer retention, acquisition and convergence of mobile and landline service into one economical home or small office unit. This product can also serve wireless signal challenged areas at a fraction of the price that Femtocell products cost and without the concern about boosted microcell signal radiation."
In addition to enhancing clarity, even in areas where signal quality is weak, SmartLinX™ saves mobile minutes by using the consumer's landline rather than cellular plan. SmartLinX™ is powerful and versatile, enabling users to dial smartphone contacts directly through their landline while pairing up to eight smartphones on one base unit. SmartLinX™ is also a smart solution for home-based and small businesses, serving up to eight smartphones, with the ability to turn a smartphone into a virtual two-line phone, and built-in conference/intercom functions. In addition, SmartLinX™ can be used as a traditional landline phone even when no smartphone is present.
"The AirTouch SmartLinX is a 'win-win' product for consumers and carriers of landline services," stated Brian Taney, CEO, GetWireless. "Consumers benefit from enhanced signal clarity and functionality. Carriers benefit by having a powerful retention tool to keep customers from dropping their landline service. We're very excited at GetWireless to offer innovative and affordable technology from AirTouch."
