Movaic Expands Distribution of the iZel to Japan

EVERETT, WA--(Marketwire - April 6, 2010) -  Movaic®, Inc. today announces a strategic agreement with Pleiades System Designs to distribute its popular iZel® (www.MyiZel.com), a truly portable stand for hands-free viewing of most popular smartphones, to retailers throughout Japan.

The iZel is entering the Japanese market as the popularity of the iPhone and iPod accessories are at an all-time high. The phenomenal success of the recent iPhone debut in Japan, where Apple has a 50-percent market share, has created a huge demand for iPhone accessories.

Mikio Motohashi, Managing Director of Pleiades, commented, "Pleiades has a strong history of distributing innovative accessories to iPod and iPhone enthusiasts in Japan. A unique product like the iZel fits well within our product line, and further strengthens our portfolio."

The iZel's innovative design has made it a top accessory for users of the iPhone and other mobile devices since its introduction a year ago. Consistently, independent reviewers have positioned the iZel in the top of its class. Planet iPhones recently ranked the iZel "The Best Overall" in a very detailed review of the top eight stands (http://planet-iphones.com/2010/02/25/the-last-stand-standing/) and iPhone Ness says, "The iZel is the best iPhone stand, hands down," when it was compared to 13 competitive stands (http://www.iphoneness.com/iphone-accessories/7-cool-iphone-stands/).

In the USA, the iZel is available from www.MyiZel.com or through Amazon.com.
