SAN DIEGO -- Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq:NVTL), a leading provider of wireless data access solutions and its partner, Mobiltron China, a leading distributor of wireless devices in the region, formally introduced the Merlin G201(TM) in the People's Republic of China at a seminar held in Chongqing city. Over 100 senior officers from Chongqing Mobile -- a subsidiary of China Mobile, the largest GSM operator in mainland China -- were in attendance to gain hands-on experience with Novatel Wireless' latest dual-band GSM/GPRS PC card modem for the Asia-Pacific market. Chongqing Mobile has chosen to offer the Merlin G201 to its mobile data customer base in Chongqing city. China Mobile officially launched its GPRS service on May 17, 2002 in over 200 cities throughout mainland China. Novatel Wireless, Mobiltron China and its channel partners will initially sell the Merlin G201 in five major GSM/GPRS wireless coverage areas: Chongqing city, Xiamen city, Guangdong province, Zhejiang province, and Hunan province. "We believe the potential for success in the GPRS market is very high," stated deputy general manager, Mr. Wang Guo Gang, of Chongqing Mobile. "With the official launch of our high-speed packet data network in May, we wanted to provide our customers with the best GPRS modem solution available and the Novatel Wireless Merlin G201 was a natural choice. Capitalizing on Novatel Wireless' successful track record of delivering high speed wireless data devices, we will provide much faster, more robust wireless data services, and ultimately, a more satisfying user experience to our wireless data customers in China."
