Gupp Technologies Inc. Selects Trinity Convergence's Voice Engine for IP-Centric Smart Communication Device

VeriCall Edge® Multimedia Software From Trinity Convergence Enables WiFi Calling in Next-Generation Dual-Mode Handset Targeting Enterprise and Consumer Markets in Asia Pacific and Europe

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC--(Marketwire - February 18, 2009) - Trinity Convergence today announced that Gupp Technologies Inc. has licensed its VeriCall Edge embedded multimedia software for an IP-centric dual-mode (WiFi + GSM) smart communication device that it will deploy in the second quarter of 2009.

Gupp's new smart communication device, Phreedom - Monday, is a SIP-based, dual-mode multimedia and communications device designed to have WiFi serve as its primary means of data transfer and voice calling. The product is designed to offer consumers the best possible WiFi experience -- regardless of whether they are at home, in the office or on a public WiFi network. Supporting high-fidelity voice-over-WiFi (VoWiFi) calling in both enterprise and consumer networks, the GSM capability functions as a back-up medium for locations where WiFi connectivity may not be available.

"When we set out to design the Phreedom - Monday phone, our goal was to deliver a truly unique product to the marketplace -- in terms of design, functionality and performance," stated Guy Tessens, Co-Founder and CEO/Managing Director of Gupp Technologies Inc. "The expertise of Trinity Convergence and its VeriCall Edge software have been instrumental in helping ensure that the voice-over-WiFi call quality is pristine. Trinity's track record developing multimedia and communication devices made them the clear choice as we evaluated a variety of technology and solution partners."

"Gupp has developed a truly innovative IP-centric mobile communication device that puts more functionality and flexibility into the hands of the user," stated Brian Lees, vice president of sales and business development for APAC and EMEA, Trinity Convergence. "The focus on WiFi is a departure from other dual-mode devices and takes advantage of the high-density of networks and users spreading across many parts of Asia. The Phreedom - Monday offers users the ultimate in convenience with the added benefit of drastically lowering consumer phone bills. We look forward to seeing the Phreedom phone's launch."

Phreedom - Monday is the world's first IP-centric fully open, SIP-based, VoWiFi/GSM mobile communication device. GUPP's premier offering provides unparalleled freedom on-the-go and drastically reduced roaming charges for a lower phone bill. With Phreedom, users can seamlessly switch to VoIP-based calling, avoiding long-distance and roaming charges.

As businesses increase their reliance on hand-held mobile devices, smartphones will need to offer more than traditional voice communications. Phreedom provides enhanced capabilities such as a Smart Call Flow, web browsing, music downloading and e-mail. The advanced mobile technologies combined with Phreedom's disruptive technology gives users the ultimate connection experience anytime, anywhere.
