iBIZ acquires Synosphere, makers of Blue Dock
iBIZ Technology and Synosphere announced the completion of the company's acquisition of Synosphere. Synosphere's main product is the Blue Dock, which was shown during the Consumer Electronics show (CES) 2004 in Las Vegas.

The Blue Dock is the world's first PDA docking station to allow a PDA to function as a primary computing platform in a desktop environment, without the need for an additional workstation or laptop. It works pretty much like a uPC concept, but using a handheld OS instead of a desktop OS. It allows the use with any full size monitor, keyboard, mouse, network connection, SD card, and supported USB devices with the handheld.

iBIZ is the company behind the Virtual Laser Keyboard, just launched and present on TV shows during the CES..

Kenneth Schilling, President and CEO of iBIZ, commented, "The Synosphere acquisition adds significant value to our company by bringing innovative and forward looking products that I believe address the immediate and future needs of handheld and portable computing in schools, hospitals, workplace and other markets. Furthermore, I believe by continually protecting key intellectual property rights, we will be able to create competitive barriers to entry and begin to control specific markets."

Bryan Scott, President and CEO of Synosphere, commented, "The iBIZ acquisition of Synosphere is a perfect match between a technology company and a company that has an excellent reputation and avenue for manufacturing and distributing PDA products. We are excited to work closely with Ken and his team and look forward to future success together."
