FRANKLIN SHOWCASES DRAMATICALLY MODERNIZED ROLODEX® ELECTRONICS HANDHELD ORGANIZER LINE
Completely Redesigned Cases, More Memory, More Features Highlight Six Revitalized Products
LAS VEGAS, NV, January 6, 2000 - Franklin Electronic Publishers, Inc. (NYSE:FEP) literally went back to the drawing board to bring its ROLODEX® Electronics handheld electronic organizer products out of the 20th Century with a dramatic restyling and function and software upgrades for this year's new product line. Franklin announced the completion of the first phase of the new ROLODEX® Electronics line with the showing of the RF-3, RF-48, RF-64, RF-128, RF-192 and RF-512 models at the Consumer Electronics Show.
Franklin, holder of an exclusive license to produce handheld electronic organizers under the ROLODEX® Electronics trademark started with a total redesign of all its organizer cases to make it easier for users to find controls and features, to put more distance between the keys, to make the screens larger and more readable, and to add lids to make the products even sturdier. It also incorporated its new DATA GUARD® digital data protection system into selected models to prevent data loss if batteries fail or are removed from the organizer. Franklin began shipping the new ROLODEXâ Electronics products in June 1999, and all six models are now in stores.
