“The addressable market for small to medium deployments is sizable,” said Kevin Mills, president and chief executive officer of Socket Communications. “We believe that we are ideally positioned to leverage our mobile productivity products to provide a flexible and easy-to-optimize platform that brings the right mobile business functions for the best overall value.”
Socket will continue to offer one of the most complete lines of mobile peripherals and will also be leveraging existing distribution channels and extensive integration partner relationships to maximize the opportunity for this new mobile computing product line in the marketplace.
“Although a sizable market with a healthy growth outlook, much of the opportunity has been concentrated around FORTUNE 1000 enterprise deployments,” said David Krebs, director of the Mobile and Wireless Practice of VDC. “However, one of the fastest growing segments – small and medium sized deployments – continues to be underserved by mobility vendors presenting an opportunity for organizations such as Socket Communications.”
Recent research by VDC indicates that the overall enterprise mobility market – hardware software and services – exceeded $23 billion in 2006.
Socket’s unique, solutions-focused mobile computing product line will specifically target mobile workers providing essential customer-facing services in key business verticals including healthcare, retail, hospitality, field sales and field service. The Company anticipates its first mobile computing device will be available for sale in the second quarter of 2007 and will provide detailed product information within the next few months.
