BWireless: BC Company First to Offer International 'Walkie-Talkie' Wireless Service in US and Canada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 5, 2005) - BWireless™ a Vancouver, Canada based wireless dealer, has officially launched the BWireless™brand into the US with the opening of its first Sprint Store in downtown Seattle at 3rd & Pike. BWireless™ is the first company to offer International "Walkie-Talkie" wireless service to both US and Canadian companies.

Emil Bosnjak, BWireless™ Chief Executive Officer says BWireless™ offers business clients and consumers on both sides of the 49th parallel the latest in wireless technology. "In the US, our carrier partner Sprint/Nextel and their industry leading Direct Connect service, connects users with a quick push of a button -- no dialing, no ringing, no waiting, and no using valuable voice minutes. In Canada, our carrier partner is Telus," says Bosnjak.

"It's a fast, reliable and cost effective way of communicating throughout North America with your international offices, employees, family and friends. The designer and contractors who built our BWireless™ Store in Seattle utilized Sprint/Nextel's "Walkie-Talkie" wireless service. BWireless™ employees in Seattle chirped their counterparts in Vancouver with the "Walkie-Talkie" handset when required throughout the buildup phase thus eliminating voice mail and secretaries," says Bosnjak.

The Sprint/Nextel "Walkie-Talkie" proprietary iDEN network was built specifically for "Walkie-Talkie" usage so there's little delay when connecting -- usually one half to three quarters of a second, compared with delays of two to four seconds for competing systems.

Boris Bosnjak, Executive Vice President of BWireless™ says our expansion to Seattle, a wireless hotbed in the United States, was our first choice given the amount of successful wireless business leaders who started their businesses in the Seattle area. The Pacific North West is also home to many corporations with operations in both the US and Canada.

"Global mobile phone sales will reach 779 million by the end of 2005. Worldwide sales will be one billion by 2009. We're in the right sector, in the right market, at the right time," says Bosnjak.

BWireless™, based in Vancouver, BC, is one the leading independent wireless dealers in the Pacific Northwest with six locations in two countries. BWireless™ provides wireless solutions to business clients, government agencies and consumers. BWireless™ business clients include many of North America's largest corporations.
