SAN DIEGO, May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- InfoSonics Corporation (NASDAQ: IFON) today announced the launch of its new verykool® s505 smartphone, the most dynamic mobile handset the company has offered to date.

InfoSonics’ verykool(R) s505 Spark smartphone is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad core processor and Android 4.2 (upgradable to 4.4) operating system. The Spark has an ultra high-end design and comprehensive set of features including a preloaded Personal Safety Services app designed to provide users quick access to help in case of an emergency. At an MSRP of $199, the Spark delivers verykool value by combining smart functionality,  an elegant design, and advanced safety features at an affordable price.

The s505, nicknamed the "Spark," has an ultra high-end design. It is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad core processor and is equipped with the Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system. The phone will be upgradable to Android 4.4 (KitKat) in the near future via a partnership with Red Bend Software, the market leader in mobile software management.

The Spark sports a 5-inch HD IPS-LCD, on-cell touch screen with full lamination, an 8mm ultra slim profile and is being offered at a suggested retail price of $199. In addition to providing a comprehensive set of features, the Spark is the first smartphone to come preloaded with the Personal Safety Services application from MobileTREC, which allows texting to 911 and immediate deployment of emergency help across multiple contacts when personal safety is at risk. 

"We understand that the future of the industry is dependent upon our ability to offer robust applications that provide tools and resources that are important for our work and daily lives," said Joseph Ram, InfoSonics president and chief executive officer. "We are on the forefront of this trend as exemplified by partnering with MobileTREC to bring their patented safety platform to verykool users. We believe our goal to provide the best value to our customers is met by the Spark, which combines smart functionality with an elegant design and one of the most advanced safety features available--all at a very affordable price."
