ParkerVision Wireless LAN Card Awarded Laptop Magazine Ultimate Choice Award for 2004JACKSONVILLE, Florida, June 9, 2004 -- ParkerVision, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRKR), announced today it was awarded Laptop Magazine's 2004 Ultimate Choice Award for its wireless LAN card.
Ultimate Mobility, Laptop Magazine's Summer Special Edition 2004, selected ParkerVision's Wireless LAN Card as their Ultimate Choice winner for Wi-Fi Add-Ons. "As a long distance Wi-Fi card for users stuck in dead spots in a home or office, the card is a lifesaver. When we tested the card in a 75-year- old house full of thick plaster walls, we were pleasantly surprised, we were able to maintain a connection from everywhere." The magazine noted, "If you want to zap dead zones in your office or abode, pick up this card."
"When we tell people that wireless products based on ParkerVision's D2D™ technology completely eliminate dead zones and dramatically improve their coverage area, most people are skeptical because that is not their experience with other wireless products. Laptop Magazine's independent testing and selection of ParkerVision's Wireless LAN Card for their 'Ultimate Choice' award for 2004 is a further validation of our performance claims," said ParkerVision's CEO, Jeffrey Parker. "We are very pleased to get this recognition on our first wireless product, and we have since introduced a complete ParkerVision wireless networking system that further extends our performance benefits," continued Parker.
