Mexico's Iusacell Selects Franklin Wireless' CDU-550 Wireless Broadband Modem

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 4, 2006 -- Franklin Wireless Corp. (PINKSHEETS: FKLT), a developer and marketer of wireless broadband communications devices and applications, and Iusacell announced the launch of the Franklin Wireless CDU-550 mobile broadband USB modem on Iusacell's CDMA 1xEV-DO network in Mexico.

The Franklin Wireless CDU-550 USB modem is available through Iusacell distributors according to more than a $1 million deal based on distributor price. The CDU-550 USB modem provides a flexible way for wireless subscribers to connect to the wireless broadband network since it is compatible with any laptop, tablet PC or desktop USB port and operates with Windows, Macintosh and Linux operating systems.

As Mexico's only 1xEV-DO network operator, Iusacell has embarked on a strategic and differentiating approach that focuses on mobile data products and services, which places the company as a leading-edge technology operator. EV-DO technology enables individuals to send and receive email with large file attachments, play real-time interactive games, receive and send high-resolution pictures and video, download video and music content or stay wirelessly connected to their office PCs -- all from the same mobile device.

"Franklin's CDU-550 gives Iusacell a unique advantage in the Mexican mobile market," said Jorge de la Mora, Data Solutions Director with Iusacell. "Not only do we offer the fastest and most robust wireless broadband data services through our EV-DO network, but customers now have a flexible way to take advantage of the network since Franklin's CDU-550 is compatible with multiple operating systems and doesn't require a PCMCIA card slot to connect to the Internet."

"We are opening up the wireless broadband market by offering a multi-platform connectivity solution to end users. A PC card solution can't match these capabilities," said O.C. Kim, President of Franklin Wireless.

Franklin Wireless products are marketed through Original Equipment Manufacturers ("OEMs") and distributors, as well as directly to operators and end users.
