Company Press Release
Motorola, Symbol Technologies, Connect Things and
AirClic Form New Company To Drive the Growth of
E-Commerce Through One-Scan Access to the Internet
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. and HOLTSVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 15,
2000--
Symbol Bar Code Scanning Technology in Wireless Phones,
Cable TV Set-Top Terminals and Internet-Enabled Devices
Manufactured
by Motorola and Others Will Offer People Easier Way to Receive
Information and Services, Buy Products and Pay Bills
Soon, surfing the World Wide Web and ordering items on the Internet
will be just a scan away.
Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT - news), Symbol Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:
SBL - news), Connect Things, Inc., an affiliate of LM Ericsson AB
(NASDAQ: ERICY - news), and AirClic, Inc. announced today that they
have entered into memoranda of understanding and intend to invest
up to an aggregate of $500 million to form a new company that will
drive e-commerce growth through one-scan access to the Internet.
By creating a unique registry of Web codes, which are bar codes
containing instructions for executing exact tasks, the new company
will enable Motorola and other companies' wireless phones, cable TV
set-top terminals, and other Internet-enabled appliances to access
the Internet via Symbol bar code scanning technology.
Web codes will be embedded on products, in publications including
brochures and company advertisements, and on television. By
scanning a Web code with a bar code-enabled Internet device, people
will be connected directly to Web sites to order products, find
information, and manage everyday tasks and transactions. As people
scan Web codes with these new Internet devices, information will be
sent instantly to the new company's Web code registry, which
interprets the nature of the inquiry and delivers corresponding
information to users. The information will include product-ordering
links, promotional offers, downloads for music, product usage and
service data, as well as cross references to other applicable
Internet sites. Users will get transparent, universal access to
products and services. While the messages traverse the Internet,
the Internet becomes completely invisible. The system will also
support ``Internet-enhanced'' standard UPC and EAN bar codes
already positioned on millions of products worldwide.
By supporting an open platform architecture, the companies expect
there will be interest in the service from many Internet-device
manufacturers which, in turn, will drive mass volume of consumer
devices in the marketplace and widespread application of Web codes
to products, literature and advertising.
