InfoSonics Adds To Its Lineup With The Affordable Power Of The Verykool® S400 "Ruby"

Stocks in this article: IFON

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  InfoSonics Corporation (NASDAQ: IFON) today announced the launch of its new verykool ® s400 Smartphone.  The s400, nicknamed Ruby, is an affordable smartphone that is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and the Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system.

"We continue to refresh our product portfolio with faster processors, newer software and better features," said Joseph Ram, InfoSonics president and chief executive officer.  "The new s400 features a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, Android 4.2, a 4.0‑inch TFT LCD capacitive touch screen, 5-megapixel rear camera and VGA front‑facing camera.  We expect this model will fill the place of older 3.5-inch products as customers prefer larger screens to improve the user experience.  At the $110 price point, the s400 is a great value for the consumer."

The Company noted the following additional details of the s400:

  • 3G UMTSW/HSPA+ tri band (850/1900/2100); 2G quad band (850/900/1800/1900)
  • Connectivity includes Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot, Modem Tethering, Bluetooth, GPS and USB port
  • SMS and MMS messaging plus push e-mail, IM and SNS
  • Built-in FM radio, audio/video player and recorder
  • 1400 mAh Li-Ion battery
  • 4GB internal memory; supports up to 32GB micro SD card
  • Speakerphone, proximity/light/gravity sensors, and 3.5mm audio jack with stereo headset included

The verykool® s400 is available now and comes in two versions:  a single SIM version for operator customers and a dual SIM (unlocked) version for the open market.  Its suggested retail price is $109.99 (U.S.) and would likely be free of charge with the carrier subsidy on most post-paid plans.  To learn more about the device, visit our verykool ® website at http://www.verykool.net/Products/s400.
