Sony Ericsson unveils the GM29, a GPRS modem for instant machine to machine 

Sony Ericsson today unveiled the GM29, a dual band GSM/GPRS Serial Modem for
data, fax and voice traffic. The GM29, available in Q3 2002, is ideal for a
variety of fixed and mobile business application areas, including vending,
monitoring and control, security/alarms and fleet management. 

The GM29 is Sony Ericsson's fourth GPRS module to be launched this year, and 
provides customers with an instant, cost effective machine-to-machine 
communications solution for getting applications to market fast, still with a
minimum of integration.

The GM29 is a plug and play device with an integral SIM card reader and standard
RS232 connector interfaces, so it plugs directly into the application or
computer and it is ready to be used as a wireless modem. The GM29 can send and
receive data by GPRS, HSCSD, CSD, SMS and fax as well as handle voice calls. By
incorporating the latest GPRS technology the modem can maintain an 'always on'
connection with the network allowing M2M customers to benefit from quicker call
set up times, faster data transmission rates and from only paying for the data
they use.

The solution offered by the GM29 is ideal for manufacturers, system integrators
and application developers who are focused on decreased time to business and
value the adaptability offered by a plug and play device. The GM29 can also be
customized for embedded software applications and is type approved for dual band
900MHz/1800MHz operation. 

With demand for machine-to-machine solutions expected to significantly increase 
year-on-year over the next few years, Sony Ericsson's range of modules which 
cover worldwide standards (GSM, TDMA, CDMA) is well placed to serve the 
increasing market needs. 

Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB offers mobile communications products for
people who appreciate the possibilities of powerful technology. Established in
2001 by Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson and Sony Corporation, the joint venture
continues to build on the success of its two innovative parent companies. Sony
Ericsson creates value for its operator customers by bringing new ways of using
multimedia communications while mobile. The company's management is based in
London, and has 4,000 employees across the globe working on research,
development, design, sales, marketing, distribution and support.
