"Response to QuickLink Mobile Enterprise has progressed better than we expected," said William W. Smith, Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro. "We are pleased that we have already one customer that has adopted QuickLink Mobile Enterprise edition and we have many other hot possibilities in the pipeline. Our sales effort has progressed strongly since we introduced QuickLink Mobile Enterprise at this show last year. We announced the availability of the product at the CTIA show last March. At that time we did not anticipate that QuickLink Mobile Enterprise would start contributing to our revenues until 2006. I believe this early win and the pipeline indicates that there is a need for this solution."
