SavaJe Technologies Expands in Japan with iDOC

1/19/2004 - SavaJe Technologies, Inc., announced it has signed iDOC K.K. of Tokyo as its exclusive representative in Japan. This relationship will accelerate the company's effort to bring SavaJe's Operating System for wireless handsets to the many Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) headquartered in Japan.

Often considered the world's leading center for innovation and development of mobile devices, Japan is also one of the most advanced mobile telephony markets. Most of the world's leading handset manufacturers are headquartered in Japan, including NEC, Panasonic, Sanyo, Sharp, Kyocera, and Toshiba.

"Japan is a key market for SavaJe," said Bob Gilkes, SavaJe's CEO. "iDOC is experienced at providing services to major Japanese companies, and we believe our agreement with iDOC will have a substantial impact in increasing awareness of SavaJe, and in creating demand for new business in the region."

In early 2004, iDOC will formally represent SavaJe Technologies in Japan, as well as provide local technical backup and localized porting services.

"We are pleased to represent SavaJe Technologies in Japan," said Hideki Narui, president of iDOC. "SavaJe's innovative Java platform provides a unique value proposition for OEMs, allowing them to maintain their added-value profile to operators, while retaining margins in the face of handset commoditization."
