West Palm Beach, FL, and Netanya, Israel December 26, 2012 – magicJack VocalTec, Ltd. (NASDAQ:CALL, news, filings) (the “Company”), the Voice Experts and cloud communications leader that invented voice over IP (VoIP) and sold over ten million magicJacks®, announced today that the newest product has been modified to include two USB slots, one USB plug, a SD micro slot, one RJ11 jack and one RJ45 jack. With LTE 4G progressing so quickly in the United States and throughout the world, the Company modified the newest product for a few months to accelerate the ability to offer discounted Internet access to new and existing customers using this device besides other functions and features. This will provide many people their first opportunity to take advantage of high-speed Internet access.
magicJack will announce the new product name in 2013 and expects the new product to be offered in early Q2 2013. Incredibly, it will be only be about slightly larger than the magicJack PLUS and will offer high definition (HD) voice. The Company expects additional, exciting new products to follow in 2013 utilizing our second new chip of 2013. This is a 55nm chip designed for portable use and includes a super scalar one Ghz CPU and much larger GB DDR2 or DDR3 memory as well as over 25 other functions. The Company expects to continue to offer the magicJack PLUS as its price-leading model as it has proven to be very reliable and desirable, with extremely good sales recorded in December. It is no wonder that the magicJack PLUS continues to do so well, as the Company will soon announce a major award granted to magicJack, with the Company scoring on top of five different metrics being awarded the top consumer VoIP company.
Dan Borislow adds, “With assets nobody else has we will continue to dominate and grow our space. This is the power of what we are building and the patents and IP we have built up. This has been a breakout year not only financially, but we have developed and planned our future. Our growth is predicated on locking some deals up and executing on our plans. We do not need one more unique idea to be very successful and grow the value of our Company for years to come. I think 2013 will be the year people understand what we are building, our technology and our vast opportunities. Our newest products will be our best inventions and will dwarf what we have done with magicJack to date.”
