Phoenix, Oct 16: The InPlay Technologies has joined hands with RichPower Electronic Devices, a company of WPG Holdings, to expand its business in Asia and India.
"With an extensive sales and technical network reaching our target OEM customers and potential strategic partners, WPG is an ideal partner as we expand our global infrastructure," said Ramesh Ramchandani, President and Chief Operating Officer of InPlay.
"We started with Japan, and now through WPG have significantly increased our footprint in Asia and India," Ramchandani added.
WPG Holdings is Asia's number one electronics distributor. Headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, it has a solid and complete Asia-Pacific service network with over 30 sales offices around greater China and the Asia-Pacific region.
WPG will provide a local presence to market and support InPlay's relationships in Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, and India.
"We are always looking for unique, market-leading products to deliver to our customers," said Al Hamilton, CEO of WPG Gateway Inc. - a member of WPG Holdings.
"InPlay's digital pen technology offers advantages for today's mobile computing devices as well as a roadmap that enables product innovation in the future," Hamilton added.
InPlay is targeting OEMs to incorporate its patented FinePoint technology for tablet PCs, smartphones and other mobile devices as well as partnerships with providers of complementary components such as LCDs and touch screens.
FinePoint is the only active RF pen input solution with digital stream communication available today.
The analog technology used on most systems uses an analog communication method with limited expansion capability.
InPlay's digital technology offers OEMs an almost limitless roadmap for development of features and functions for their product designs.
InPlay recently introduced its initial advancement using digital stream communication with its InPEN, the first intelligent pen for integration with tablet PCs.
