MACWORLD EXPO, SAN FRANCISCO, CA - BOOTH 2133 - January 8, 2002 -- The Macintosh Division of Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a developer and marketer of a wide range of software and service solutions, today announced that it will be demonstrating FAXstf X for the first time at Macworld Expo 2002.
FAXstf X is a complete fax solution built exclusively for Mac OS X. Tightly integrated with Mac OS X, FAXstf X improves upon the success of its previous version by making faxing as easy as printing. Any document-based application that prints can also send a fax. FAXstf X introduces easy fax management at your fingertips.
FAXstf X integrates the Mac OS X Address Book, making it unnecessary to duplicate or maintain multiple phone books. To send a fax, users simply drag and drop addresses from their Mac OS X Address Book into the FAXstf Print Dialog Address pane. FAXstf X is an easy-to-use solution and users will appreciate its seamless operation that enables ultra-fast faxing of virtually any document from their desktop.
"We are very excited about our new full-featured fax software available exclusively for Mac OS X, said William W. Smith Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Smith Micro. "In addition to voice and email communications, the need to be able to fax directly from your Mac is an integral tool and requirement that many businesses and consumers rely on for sending legal documents, contracts and product orders," Mr. Smith continues.
"The incredible success of Mac OS X has created a tremendous opportunity for software developers like Smith Micro," said Ron Okamoto Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "For many Apple customers who rely on faxing daily or occasionally as a part of their business, FAXstf X will help them with their transition to running their businesses on Mac OS X."
As the first native Mac OS X fax application, FAXstf X takes advantage of the multi-tasking, multi-threading environment that allows users to send and receive faxes in the background while performing other work. In addition, FAXstf takes full advantage of the Mac OS X Aqua user interface and features animated Dock icons to reflect the status of a fax that is being sent or received.
System requirements for FAXstf X include Mac OS X, hardware that runs Mac OS X and a recommended 30MB available RAM. FAXstf X has a suggested retail price of $89.95 and is available directly from Smith Micro, through online eTailers and most major retailers like the Apple retail stores and CompUSA.
