AirTouch Communications (OTCBB: ATCH) Is Profiled in Levine's MicroCap Investor

NEWPORT BEACH, CA - January 17, 2012 (Investorideas.com Newswire) - AirTouch Communications, Inc. (OTCBB: ATCH) (www.airtouchinc.com), which designs and markets wireless telecommunications devices, today announced that the company has been profiled by Josh Levine in his MicroCap Investor newsletter. The article is available at http://www.levinesmicrocapinvestor.com/.
The company's strategy is to capitalize on the accelerating trend of wireless rather than landline service in the U.S. and the growing wireless network around the world, particularly in regions of the globe that are underserved by landlines, such as the developing BRIC countries, Brazil, Russia, India and China, plus Latin America and Africa.
Mr. Levine states that AirTouch will offer devices capable of converging traditional landline, cellular and internet services to provide a gateway terminal for homes and small businesses. AirTouch owns patents that cover a combination of cordless telephone technology and wireless signal amplification.
AirTouch, which designs and markets wireless communication solutions using the cellular network, has developed a cordless phone that amplifies the signal up to 10 times that of a mobile phone. The advantages of a cordless phone with multiple handsets are combined with the benefits of a cellular phone for the home and small business. In addition to voice and text messaging, the AirTouch device provides the user with Internet access.
The company launched its first CDMA multiple handset, dual mode (cellular/landline) phone in 2010 for home and office and it has been increasing awareness and deployment through the Verizon Wireless independent seller network. The company has a strategic partnership with Brightpoint, its third largest shareholder.
AirTouch has set forth an aggressive strategy which includes building relationships to supply its innovative products to China Mobile, Telmex and TelCel/American Movil, some of the largest global telecommunications carriers, Levine said. In line with this strategy, the company has established a joint venture in Shenzhen, AirTouch China, hired David Lee as Head of Sales in China, Carlos Isaza as Head of Sales in Latin America and Tom Quan as EVP Global Sales & Marketing. In addition, AirTouch will be leveraging the capabilities of Elephant Talk Communications. Under this initial agreement, ETAK will provide a full Mobile Virtual Network Enabling (MVNE) system for AirTouch to launch its services in the U.S. Levine said.
Levine said that within 18 to 24 months, AirTouch expects to be able to roll out wireless triple-play services. Meanwhile, he said, the company is configuring its technology to run on a major mobile operating system. With a new OS in place, AirTouch will have the capability to develop many software services and enable a broad range of applications to be developed by third parties, built around AirTouch devices.
