Stockholders approve new name reflecting focus on the Business Mobility market segment
Socket Communications, Inc., provider of mobile productivity products, has announced that its stockholders approved changing its legal name to Socket Mobile, Inc. Socket Mobile has been doing business under the name for more than a year. The name change is effective immediately.
The legal name change reflects Socket Mobiles expansion into the systems business last year with its SoMo line of handheld mobile computer products specifically designed to address the emerging Business Mobility handheld market segment.
Our new name is more representative of the strategic direction of the company and better conveys the breadth of mobile productivity products we now offer the marketplace under the Socket Mobile corporate brand, said Kevin Mills, president and chief executive officer of Socket Mobile. The Business Mobility handheld systems market segment represents the gap that exists between traditional consumer grade devices, and rugged and integrated industrial devices.
