LG launches first mobile phone with Fastap
Digit Wireless, LG Electronics and Canadian wireless carrier Telus Mobility announced an agreement to produce the first Fastap enabled mobile phone.

Digit Wireless's Fastap keypad allows mobile phone users to type text messages and other data using letter, number and punctuation keys arranged neatly around the standard keypad on a mobile phone.

"Fastap brings keyboard functionality directly to a standard-sized mobile phone, offering both business users and consumers an intuitive interface designed specifically for easy text messaging and other mobile data applications," said Chris Hare, President of Digit Wireless. "We expect early partnerships with industry leaders such as Telus Mobility and LG Electronics to drive widespread adoption of Fastap enabled phones."

Said Neil Strother, senior analyst with In-Stat/MDR's wireless research group: "Mobile text messaging has made great strides in North America, but widespread usage remains elusive. One of the limiting factors has been the traditional telephone keypad. But Digit Wireless' unique and easy solution breaks the mold, and should enable some serious growth for text messaging."

Telus Mobility is the first wireless provider in the world to publicly commit to Fastap technology, and plans to offer Fastap enabled mobile phones exclusively in Canada in 2004. The company has create a corporate investment fund dedicated to creating strategic alliances with entrepreneurial organizations and invested directly in Digit Wireless, enabling the technology company to expand its worldwide presence.
