China Mobile to Deploy TestQuest CountDown

BSQUARE Automated Testing Solution Ensures Nationwide Data Services Quality

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) - BSQUARE Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR), a leading enabler of smart, connected devices, today announced that China Mobile Communications Corporation, the world's largest mobile operator with over 200 million subscribers, has selected TestQuest CountDown, an automated testing solution from BSQUARE to automate remote data services testing in all thirty-one of the operator's provincial operating subsidiaries.

TestQuest CountDown will be used as the core of an automated system that is designed to validate the availability, stability and reliability of a broad array of data services delivered to China Mobile subscribers via their handsets. Data services will be tested across a wide variety of handsets including devices based on the Android, Microsoft, OPhone and Symbian platforms. Handset testing will be conducted from locations in each of the thirty-one provinces to measure real-world network performance, ensuring the best possible experience for China Mobile subscribers.

"We are extremely pleased to be working with China Mobile," said Brian Crowley, chief executive officer of BSQUARE. "This investment in measuring real life data performance is a testament to China Mobile's commitment to delivering the best possible data services to their large and growing base of subscribers as data becomes a critical component of their growth strategy. This win, along with the separate BSQUARE Handset Certification Platform program, represents a concentrated effort to focus the TestQuest products on new markets and new customer targets including mobile operators. We see significant opportunity in these areas and this effort will lead to strong growth in our TestQuest revenue in Q4."
