AirTouch Communications Receives Certification of HomeConneX Product in 16 African Nations

Shipments of X500 and X1500 to Begin in First Quarter of 2012

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 7, 2012) - AirTouch Communications, Inc. (OTCBB: ATCH) (, a designer and marketer of wireless telecommunications devices, today announced the certification of the Company's X500 and X1500 HomeConneX products for use on the Vodafone communications networks throughout the 16 countries of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

AirTouch provides a unique telecom solution, particularly in countries where cost and geography have limited the deployment of landlines. AirTouch devices combine cordless phone technology with up to 10 times more wireless signal amplification, while safeguarding against possible hazards of microwave radiation from cellular phones to sensitive human tissues. Home and office users will be able to enjoy services, including voice, text (SMS) and data with no landlines and no computers by using AirTouch Communications' patent protected line of products.

"We believe this certification by Vodafone demonstrates the potential widespread market demand and acceptance of AirTouch phone devices," stated AirTouch CEO Hide Kanakubo. "The shipments of our X500 and X1500 products in Africa come after successfully establishing a joint venture in China to pursue purchase orders from Chinese carriers, certification by Verizon Wireless of our X1500 and the expansion of our footprint in the U.S. through the Verizon Wireless independent dealer network. We are very excited to begin selling to Vodaphone, which puts us one step closer towards our goal of becoming the premier wireless telecommunication device option in emerging markets, particularly those with large rural populations that will likely never have adequate landline service."

Vodafone is the world's largest mobile telecommunications company, measured by revenues, and the world's second-largest measured by subscribers, after China Mobile. Vodafone owns and operates networks in over 30 countries and has partner networks in more than 40 additional countries.

Vodafone's actions follow extensive compatibility testing with their networks. Certification, also known as homologation, of the AirTouch HomeConneX products has also occurred for other countries' cellular networks in the ECOWAS.
