Subtitle: Product range to be expanded with Android

Hannover / Germany, 27/02/2012. (euro adhoc) - Hoeft & Wessel is expanding its
range of mobile terminals with the Android operating system. The new units will
go on exhibit for the first time at the EuroCIS. The IT company recently
introduced the first mobile terminal loaded with the Android OS for commercial
applications. The new terminal is part of the skeye.dart model range, a
particularly robust handheld in PDA format. Now the top-selling model for the
German retail trade, the skeye.allegro series, is also available preloaded with
Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The distinguishing feature of this terminal, which
also allows single-handed operation, is its landscape display: it gives the
operator the same look & feel as when working on a PC. Soon to arrive is the
skeye.e-motion series, again a particularly robust handheld with a large touch
display in tablet format, running the Android 2.3 OS.

Accordingly, Hoeft & Wessel will now be offering its top line ranges of mobile
terminals also with the leading smartphone operating system. Customers in the
wholesale, retail and logistics sectors will be able to benefit from Android´s
strengths, such the diverse range of programming options, the many applications
that are available, and the intuitive user interface.

Thanks to the company´s constant development efforts, all mobile terminals from
Hoeft & Wessel are equipped with powerful ARM microprocessors and large storage
capacities. Secure WLAN modules and radio communications technologies ranging
from UMTS right through to HSDPA 3G ensure fast data transmission. The scope of
application of the various Skeye brand model series ranges from support
applications as diverse as data capture in branches, forklift operations in the
field of logistics and deployment in field services. Customers have a choice of
display sizes from 2.8" to 8.4" and options such as imaging devices, laser
scanners and RFID readers. Development frameworks for use in software
development and a device management system facilitating automatic configuration
and installation of mobile terminals complete the company's range of offerings.

The early introduction of the Android operating system is in keeping with Hoeft
& Wessel´s corporate philosophy, which is to offer customers a choice of
operating systems which can be customised to suit their particular

"The response to our Android initiative has been very encouraging. Trading
companies, logistics operators as well as our value-added partners are showing
great interest. We expect Android running on mobile terminals to make a
successful entry into commerce and logistics," says Hoeft & Wessel Management
Board member Thomas Wolf confidently.
