B&B Electronics Is Awarded Exclusive Canadian Distribution Rights for ZOMM, the World's First Wireless Leash for Mobile Phones

The small, lightweight ZOMM device prevents phone loss, while providing hands-free communications and emergency calling capabilities

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 14, 2010) - B&B Electronics Ltd. (B&B), a Canadian distribution company specializing in best-in-class products for the Automotive, Marine and Consumer Electronics markets, announced today the signing of an exclusive distribution agreement with ZOMM™. This agreement applies to the Canadian marketplace and will be bringing ZOMM to major retailers across Canada this fall.

ZOMM is the world's first wireless leash for mobile phones. Utilizing Bluetooth® technology, this CES award-winning device prevents users from losing or misplacing their cell phone by vibrating, flashing and sounding an alarm every time users walk away from and leave their phones. With added features including call notification, fully functional speakerphone with a noise canceling microphone and personal safety, the keychain-sized ZOMM is the ultimate multi-functional accessory for any Bluetooth-enabled phone.

"The team at B&B Electronics is excited and proud to be launching ZOMM in Canada," said Ben Jensen, President of B&B Electronics. "ZOMM is a simple device like no other, designed to protect you, your phone and your personal information."

"ZOMM fills a tremendous void in the marketplace," said Henry Penix, CEO and co-founder of ZOMM. "Most people can relate to either losing or forgetting their cell phone, therefore we created ZOMM to help people avoid the exasperating and expensive process of getting a replacement. It's not just the phone – it's also the pictures, contacts and other personal information that make replacing a phone such a hassle and ZOMM so appealing."

"B&B Electronics takes pride in partnering with some of the most advanced and cutting edge product lines in their industry. ZOMM's innovative technology and refreshing business culture mesh seamlessly with B&B's overall direction and growth strategy," said Jensen. "The agreement with ZOMM further cements B&B Electronics as one of Canada's leading distributors in their class, committed to sourcing only the latest and most innovative consumer electronics for Canadians."
