Microvision's Bluetooth Flic Laser Bar Code Scanner Integrated with BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds

BOTHELL, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 23, 2005--Microvision Inc. (Nasdaq:MVIS - News), announced today that its application development partner, Infinite Peripherals, Irvine, CA., has created an application interface that integrates the Flic® Cordless Laser Bar Code Scanner with Research in Motion's BlackBerry(TM) Wireless Handhelds. The new capability developed by Infinite Peripherals offers out-of-the-box solutions that enable barcode scanning from any Bluetooth-enabled RIM BlackBerry Wireless Handheld.

Introduced under private label from Infinite Peripherals, the Microvision Bluetooth Flic bar code scanner has the ability to integrate with a variety of data collection software applications residing on the BlackBerry platform. The data can then be seamlessly transferred in real time to a corporate database using the wireless capabilities of the BlackBerry device.

Available immediately, the Flic Bluetooth bar code scanner and application interface from Infinite Peripherals is expected to enable powerful field force solutions using BlackBerry Handhelds. Application areas are wide ranging including sales force automation, route accounting and inventory for packaged goods companies, mobile technician record keeping and job invoicing, and building and construction site security.

"The Microvision Bluetooth Flic bar code product provides us with a simple and extremely affordable scanning solution for our customers," said Jeff Scott, Director of Sales and Marketing for Infinite Peripherals. "As we are committed to giving our customers access to the peripherals they need for their BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds, our customers now can have many choices for barcode scanning ranging from the Microvision Bluetooth Scanner to our combined printer, scanner and mag-stripe reader."

Tom Sanko, Microvision vice president of marketing stated, "We are extremely pleased with Infinite Peripherals application interface design to seamlessly integrate the Bluetooth Flic scanner with the BlackBerry Handheld Platform. With approximately 2 million BlackBerry devices currently in use, we anticipate the Bluetooth Flic Scanner may become a very popular peripheral component in bundled solutions for this growing market. Compared to bar code scanning engines that are embedded into mobile devices, our Flic Bluetooth Scanner is an inexpensive, simple and battery-saving alternative for third party developers, application providers, mobile device hardware providers, and companies with mobile field forces. The Flic Scanner combined with a BlackBerry Wireless Handheld provides an attractive business opportunity for developers and integrators that are looking to expand and service the rapidly growing mobile workforce marketplace."
