Personal Communications Devices, LLC Launches Pantech Perception on Verizon Wireless

Personal Communications Devices, LLC announced the launch of Pantech Perception on Verizon Wireless. Exclusively available on 4G LTE network with Verizon Wireless, this device was designed with tech-savvy early adopters, and the always-connected smartphone consumer in mind. The new Pantech Perception offers the latest technology for media-heavy mobile phone users, such as busy business professionals and tech literate young adults. Exclusive to the Perception is its touchless Motion Sense technology, which provides high-use functionality with the simple wave of a hand. Once activated, Perception users need not touch their screen, or any part of their device, to answer a call, change tunes, access a contact, or find a picture on their phone. Another exciting exclusive feature is Camnote technology, which allows users to scan and digitize notes that can then be tagged, searched, organized and shared. Outfitted with Android Beam, the Perception allows users to share digital content directly with any NFC-enabled smartphone at the tap of a finger, such as a web page with a colleague, or favorite photo with a friend; and the Global Ready Perception, with global roaming coverage, keeps owners connected to friends, family or business associates anywhere in the world. All of this comes to life with a stunning 4.8-inch HD display for rich detail. Heavy media consumers will love the Perception's 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras and its 16GB of memory for storing videos, pictures and music.

TELES Communications Corp and Personal Communications Devices Forge Agreement to Provide Cellular Gateway Products in North America

Two leaders in the telecom industry have joined forces to offer the disaster-recovery CELLX4 cellular gateway devices for Next Generation Networks (NGN) that extend mobility and provide cost-savings to small- and medium-sized businesses in North America. The CELLX4 cellular gateway devices are products of TELES Communications Corp., which established a strategic distribution agreement with PCD and Sprint. CELLX4 is certified for use on the Sprint Network, and Personal Communications Devices (PCD) is the official distributor of CELLX4 for Sprint and its Vision Network customers on the Migration portal. In addition to distribution services, PCD provides marketing and sales support, including an informational video planned for its portal website. CELLX4 cellular gateway devices work with all types of phone equipment to convert calls from fixed networks into mobile-to-mobile calls, providing temporary voice service where no landline exists yet, such as construction sites, and reducing costs for wireless minutes. For entities with field-based and fleet employees, CELLX4 provides one phone number access from the central PBX to employees' cell numbers. In addition, CELLX4 provides valuable wireless backup for both outbound and inbound calls in the event of landline outages. Through CELLX4, entities that secure prior authorization have access to the nationwide Wireless Priority Service during local or national disasters or emergencies. Effective March 15, 2013, CELLX4 is available through Sprint with two one-of-a-kind pricing plans in the United States: $34.99 per month for unlimited service and $9.99 per month for disaster (failover) service.
