Smith Micro Announces QuickLink Mobile Wi-Fi Seeker

Aug 23, 2004
Compact Device Allows Notebook Users to Easily Search for Strongest Wi-Fi Signal Without Booting up Their Computers

ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a developer and marketer of a wide range of software for the wireless market, announced the QuickLink Mobile Wi-Fi Seeker, a compact, convenient device that allows Wi-Fi patrons to easily search for the strongest wireless access point in public Wi-Fi hotspot locations.

QuickLink Mobile Wi-Fi Seeker eliminates the hassle of booting up a notebook computer to search for the nearest Wi-Fi access point. Simply point the device in any direction, push and hold the button down and wait for the sweeping red lights to remain lit to indicate a Wi-Fi signal has been found. QuickLink Mobile Wi-Fi Seeker can detect a wireless access point within 300 feet in less than one second and is not fooled by other radio-frequency emitting devices such as cordless phones, baby monitors and microwave ovens.

"QuickLink Wi-Fi Seeker is the perfect solution for road warriors tired of booting up their laptops only to find a Wi-Fi signal doesn't exist," said Robert Elliott, vice president of marketing with Smith Micro. "This device is small enough to fit on a key ring, zipper-pull on a notebook case or in your pocket. The QuickLink Wi-Fi Seeker is fast and can find the strongest signal in less than a second."

QuickLink Mobile Wi-Fi Seeker is directly available through Smith Micro for $29.95. Smith Micro also sells QuickLink Mobile, the most popular data connectivity solution in the wireless data industry today delivering secure, reliable and consistent connection experience. QuickLink Mobile offers users the freedom and convenience of anytime access to email, file uploads/downloads, web surfing or access to intranets without being plugged into a network or modem-line connection. QuickLink Mobile allows connection via cellular networks, Wi-Fi hotspots or a combination of both, offering the freedom to easily move from Wi-Fi hotspots to a location outside the hotspot zone.
