BOTHELL, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 11, 2005--Microvision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS - News), the world leader in the development of high-resolution displays and imaging systems, today announced it has earned certified status in Microsoft Corp.'s Partner Program for the Flic Laser Bar Code Scanner. The certification recognizes Microvision's expertise and total impact in the technology marketplace. As a Certified Partner, Microvision through its Flic Scanner has demonstrated expertise with Microsoft technologies and proven ability to meet customer needs. Microsoft Certified Partners receive a rich set of benefits, including access, training and support that give them a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Microvision's image capture technology has applications in a broad range of commercial, military, medical, industrial, professional and consumer applications. The company's commercial image capture product, the Flic Laser Bar Code Scanner, works out of the box with Microsoft products and technology, and is an ideal solution for development partners and purchasing sectors as they target price sensitive applications that can benefit from the Flic Scanner integrated to a wide range of Microsoft enabled mobile devices. The Flic Scanner offers the right set of performance features at a low price for cost sensitive applications in a variety of industries.

The Flic Scanner features a patent-pending, low-cost, shock-resistant, mechanical/magnetic laser scan engine.
