EGIL To Showcase ``The Edge'' Revolutionary Wireless Internet Device During The 2007 Consumer Electronics Show In Las Vegas
BOCA RATON, Fla. --(Business Wire)-- As the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow kicks off today, Edgetech International, Inc. (OTC:EGIL) takes its place along side industry giants to feature The Edge, a unique, handheld, stand alone wireless unit with a built-in modem and full-screen display functioning at DSL-type speed. After an exciting year with our product launch at the MTV Video Music Awards, and a complete sell out of our holiday inventory in December, it is only fitting to open 2007 by demonstrating our technological capabilities at the grandest level possible.
The Edgetech product line will be exhibited in Booth 12840 located in Central Hall of the Sands Expo and Convention Center. The prime location of EGIL's 1,000 square foot booth, in between Samsung and Sony, gives us high visibility to continuous crowd flow for the duration of the event. EGIL will showcase our cutting edge technology by linking the value of IP calling with high speed broadband through our partnership with SpeechPhone. The Edge is transformed by this linkage into a powerful communications device enabling subscribers to conduct a wide variety of e-mail and voice mail options, all by voice command.
EGIL will also display a variety of limited edition co-branded units, leveraged from partnerships with high profile athletes and celebrities, that we feel will have a dramatic impact on the future growth of the Company. Edgetech has successfully completed partnership agreements with Rodney Peete, John Salley, 3-time NBA All-Star Shawn Marion, prominent sports agency Athletes First (www.AthletesFirst.net), and legendary music manager Lou Pearlman's multi-Billion dollar Trans Continental conglomerate.
"We could think of no better opportunity to expose the consumer electronics industry to Edgetech's breakthrough product than during the world's largest collection of cutting edge gadgetry this week at its biggest annual trade show," commented Edgetech CEO, Lev Parnas. "As we embark on our breakout year, our participation in the 40th anniversary of the CES will be a memorable event that will mark the beginning of an annual tradition for Edgetech, enhancing our position among some of the world's most influential companies."
