Franklin Wireless Introduces the M600 -- the World's First Dual-Mode 3G/4G Embedded Module

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) -  CTIA Enterprise and Applications 2010 -- Franklin Wireless Corp. (OTCBB: FKWL), the market leader in dual-mode WiMAX and CDMA modems for 3G and 4G wireless broadband data communications, today announced the launch of its new M600 dual-mode WiMax/CDMA embedded module. The M600 is the world's first dual-mode embedded module and is expected to be available in October. With its Mini PCI Express Card form factor, this unique embedded module is designed to be integrated into laptops, netbooks, portable media players (PMP), E-books, tablets and M2M (machine-to-machine) products that operate over WiMAX/CDMA networks.

"The new M600 embedded module uses the same technology and operates over the same networks as our U600 USB modem, but addresses a new market opportunity for Franklin Wireless," stated OC Kim, president of Franklin Wireless. "We feel that the M600 will appeal to a broad range of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) or others who seek a versatile and reliable embedded module solution for their wireless data applications."

The M600 3G/4G embedded module supports Windows® 7, Windows Vista®, Windows XP, Linux and Mac OS® X.

Additional information about the M600, as well as the company's other products will be available at the Franklin Wireless exhibit (booth 520) during CTIA Enterprise & Applications 2010 at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco, California on October 6-8.
