Kevin Mills, president and chief executive officer, commented, "We are pleased with the quarter-over-quarter increase in revenue, which was primarily driven by an increase in our OEM business. During the quarter we began shipping our new SoMo 650 handheld computer. The initial feedback from our customers has been excellent. We entered the third quarter as a systems company and are now focused on ramping up production and building increased awareness and demand for the SoMo, which we expect to be a significant contributor to revenue in the second half of the year. We are now a one-stop supplier of mobile computing hardware systems, offering a handheld mobile computer specifically designed for enterprise use and an extensive portfolio of essential mobile data collection and networking peripherals that enable mobile automation and productivity increases for small to medium deployments. Socket Mobile is dedicated to working with application providers to supply complete business mobility solutions. Consequently, we believe we are well positioned to be a leading supplier of business mobility systems and capitalize on the expanding opportunity that we see in the marketplace."
