Zoom® Introduces Miniature Dial-Up USB Modem

56K Modem Works With Windows, Mac, and Linux Computers

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - July 10, 2007) - Zoom Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZOOM) announced today the first shipments of the Model 3095 V.92 USB Mini External Modem. The low-cost dial-up modem plugs into the USB port of any notebook or desktop computer, and its miniature design makes it ideal for travel.

The Model 3095 is approximately the size of a disposable lighter. The modem's short integrated cable plugs directly into a computer USB port, and the other end of the modem connects to a phone jack through a standard phone cord. The standard phone cord is easy to replace if it's lost or forgotten, a considerable advantage over the proprietary phone cords used with most PC Card modems.

The modem's power is provided by the computer's USB port, eliminating the need for a power adapter when traveling, and reducing power adapter clutter in the home or office.

An on-board digital signal processor and controller maximize system stability and performance. The Model 3095 provides a downstream data transmission rate of up to 56,000 bits per second (bps) and an upstream rate of up to 48,000 bps. All V.92/V.44 features are supported, including Quick Connect, Modem-On-Hold, and improved compression for the graphic content found on the Worldwide Web. Other advanced modem features include voice mail support, send and receive fax, and ZoomGuard advanced lightning protection.

Documentation and software are provided in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Greek, French, Italian, Polish, and Turkish.

The Model 3095 V.92 USB Mini External Modem has an estimated retail price of $49 in the U.S.
