Catcher Holdings CEO to Present at Frost & Sullivan Conference

Catcher to Demonstrate Next Generation Wireless Technology and Rugged Mobile Clients

LEESBURG, VA--(Marketwire - February 29, 2008) - Catcher Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: CTHH), (www.catcherinc.com), a leading provider of standards-based solutions that address high-speed mobile computing for the harshest and most demanding application environments, today announced that CEO, Gary Haycox, will be a keynote speaker for the Infrastructure and Convergence Track of the conference taking place on Monday, March 3rd. Mr. Haycox's presentation, "Broadband Wireless Decisions - 4G, WiFi or WiMAX -- Why Not?, will compare and contrast the costs and benefits of different networking infrastructures and protocols available to address the demand for true mobility solutions as computer users rapidly become more reliant on consistent access to information and applications. Additionally, Mr. Haycox will be seated as a panelist for the session, "WiFi, WiMAX and Wide Area Networks" to discuss the advantages of phased array base stations over short range "mesh" architectures for large area wireless networks where traditional "hotspots" are not feasible.

"It's ironic that I addressed this same conference several years ago on a similar subject and at that time many in the wireless industry believed technologies such as 4G and WiMAX would quickly eclipse Wi-Fi. This simply has not happened and due to many factors WiFi remains a robust and a growing technology. I strongly believe the wireless industry will move forward based on a combination of all of these technologies, with Wi-Fi still commanding a dominant position," commented Mr. Haycox. "I'm excited to be allowed to offer the wireless industry Catcher Holdings' perspective on how we believe these technologies will evolve over the coming years."

Catcher Holdings is proud to offer conference attendees Internet access utilizing the company's Vivato™ indoor base station to increase the industry's awareness of next-generation, wide area network technologies.
