AirTouch Communications, Inc., a company engaged in the development and marketing of patented telecommunications devices, recently announced that UniCell Ghana Ltd., a leading company offering telecommunications solutions, purchased 1,000 pieces of its X1500 wireless device.
The wireless device improves the cellular signal in the home and office through PureSound technology in one complete voice and data solution. The X1500 has more features than an ordinary cordless phone with less static and better signal. The device is static-free in places where other connect-to-cell phone systems with BluetoothTM are compromised. The user can plug in the notebook, laptop or desktop for internet, e-mail and more (data activation and plan required).
"We expect Ghana to be the gateway to the economic community of the West African States (ECOWAS). Under the terms of our agreement with our distribution partner UniCell, we collectively expect to sell our product to several mobile operators, including Airtel, Tigo, Glo and Vodafone (News - Alert). They will be responsible for installation of the product in both the homes and offices of their customers in several ECOWAS countries," said Hide Kanakubo, president and CEO of AirTouch, in a statement. "The agreement with UniCell and the recent order from Telmex (News - Alert) are two key milestones we have worked hard to achieve."
