ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a developer and marketer of a wide range of software and services for the wireless market, has worked with Kyocera Wireless Corp. to modify QuickLink® Mobile so that it supports the new Kyocera Passport(TM) KPC650 PC Card, featuring high-speed CDMA2000® 1x Evolution Data Optimized (EV-DO) technology. QuickLink Mobile, Smith Micro's leading connectivity product, will give end users convenient and versatile access to the Internet via high-speed CDMA 1xRTT and EV-DO data networks using Kyocera Wireless' PC Card.
QuickLink Mobile is the most popular wireless data connectivity solution in the industry and offers anytime access to email, file uploads/downloads, Web surfing and corporate intranets without being plugged into a network or landline modem connection. The solution includes installation assistance that automatically detects the mobile phone or PC card and sets up the user's computer in minutes.
"Together, Smith Micro and Kyocera Wireless will offer EV-DO customers an easy and reliable way to access wireless data services," said William W. Smith, Jr., president and CEO of Smith Micro. "The decision by Kyocera, a leading CDMA mobile phone and PC Card manufacturer, to bundle QuickLink Mobile with the Passport KPC650 highlights our ability to offer the industry's leading wireless connectivity solution, solidifying our position as a strong wireless Internet software company."
"Kyocera Wireless is widely know for providing an easy, intuitive user experience and that's why we selected Smith Micro to provide our user interface for the Passport KPC650," said Jim Kelly, executive vice president and COO at Kyocera Wireless Corp. "We believe the Passport KPC650 is the best CDMA PC card on the market today and QuickLink Mobile unlocks the power of our high-speed performance for our customers."
