Atlanta, GA 6/12/12 (StreetBeat) -- AirTouch Communications, Inc. (OTCBB:ATCH) today announced the sale of its X1500 wireless device that allows home and office users to receive voice, text (SMS), and data with no landlines and no computers to UniCell Ghana Ltd. The initial order is for 1,000 units and the first into the African market.
"We expect Ghana to be the gateway to the Economic Community of the West African States (ECOWAS). Under the terms of our agreement with our distribution partner UniCell, we collectively expect to sell our product to several mobile operators, including Airtel, Tigo, Glo and Vodafone. They will be responsible for installation of the product in both the homes and offices of their customers in several ECOWAS countries," said Hide Kanakubo, President and CEO of AirTouch. "The agreement with UniCell and the recent order from Telmex are two key milestones we have worked hard to achieve."
AirTouch, a designer and marketer of wireless telecommunications devices, provides a unique telecom solution, particularly in countries where cost and geography have limited the deployment of landlines. AirTouch devices combine cordless phone technology with up to 10 times more wireless signal amplification, while safeguarding against possible hazards of microwave radiation from cellular phones to sensitive human tissues. Home and office users will be able to enjoy services, including voice, text (SMS) and data with no landlines and no computers by using AirTouch Communications' patent protected line of products.
The HomeConneX® X1500 feeds a wireless (cellular) signal throughout the home or office for voice, data (Internet and entertainment) capabilities and can interface with home security systems. The X1500 provides a better option than poor signal quality and call dropping on mobile phones and broadband solutions requiring a high-speed Internet connection and cumbersome installations in markets that have inadequate landline and broadband infrastructure. This product is similar to the product previously certified on the Verizon network (NYSE: VZ) and certified for use in Africa.
