Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) September 12, 2006
ATP Electronics Inc., a leading manufacturer of digital flash media products, today announced a partnership with Brightpoint Inc., the nation's leading wireless handset distributor. The partnership is intended to capture the large growth in demand for higher performance flash storage media due to the increase in multimedia featured mobile handsets with removable flash memory card slots. ATP flash media products will further complete Brightpoint’s current catalog of high-quality, name-brand mobile handset accessories.
“The partnership between Brightpoint and ATP is a natural and important fit. Brightpoint has always differentiated its accessory lineup by selling OEM and higher quality products. That matches well with ATP’s focus on the highest build quality and highest performing flash cards.,” said Michael Plaksin, ATP VP of Flash Media Sales. “Also, with ATP being a true manufacturer and a close partner of Samsung Semiconductor, ATP will have both the supply chain and production capacity to accommodate Brightpoint’s high volumes, especially during shortage situations such as the holiday season.”
By the end of this year, it is anticipated that at least one third of all new mobile handsets will have a slot for removable memory slots, with a large portion of these handsets to be released in the US market. The majority of these new handsets will have enhanced higher megapixel photo, music, and video functionality, all of which require larger amounts of storage. To take advantage of this application’s growing market, ATP will be working with Brightpoint very closely to ensure full availability and support to all of Brightpoint’s sales channels and Brightpoint’s entire reseller network.
Produced using ATP’s advanced SIP (System-In-Package) manufacturing technology, ATP’s product line is best known for its water and extreme temperature resistant, dustproof, shockproof and ESD (electrostatic discharge) proof durability features.
