LEUVEN, Belgium – October 28, 2008 – Option N.V. (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the wireless technology company, today announced that a major French operator has announced two Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), the SFR M! PC Pocket 3G+ and the Archos 3G+, that connect to the operator’s national HSPA mobile broadband network via embedded modules from Option. The SFR M! PC Pocket 3G+ is also the first device incorporating Option’s Linux-based connection management software.

The new SFR M! PC Pocket 3G+ – an MID with HSPA connectivity, 4.8” touch screen, retractable keyboard, Intel’s Atom™ processor, 4GB integrated memory and weighing just 325 grams – enables anywhere, anytime access to the internet and popular web-based services such as email, instant messaging and social networks. GlobeTrotter Connect for Linux, the connection management software specifically developed by Option for MIDs based on the Intel® Centrino® Atom™ processor, controls the broadband connection.

The Archos 3G+ - an MID with HSPA connectivity, a 4.8” touch screen with 16 million colors and a storage capacity up to 30GB – gives users an entirely new way to enjoy the Web, digital media and TV on a thin and extremely fast handheld tablet.

Option embarked on an initiative to become the leading supplier of 3G wireless broadband connectivity to the emerging market for MIDs in 2007. Option’s acquisition of BenQ/Siemens Mobile R&D team last year, combined with its Intel collaboration, has made Option an important partner for MID ODMs and OEMs. Option and Intel recently extended their collaboration to include the development of a new 3.5G HSPA embedded module for the “Moorestown” platform, Intel’s next generation Mobile Internet Device (MID) platform. MID forecasts from independent analysts range from 90–136 million units a year by 2012.

LEUVEN, België – 28 oktober 2008 – Option N.V. (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), de specialist op het vlak van draadloze communicatie, maakt vandaag bekend dat een grote Franse operator twee nieuwe MID’s (Mobile Internet Device – toestel voor mobiel breedband internet) heeft gelanceerd. Het gaat om de SFR M! PC Pocket 3G+ en de Archos 3G+, die via de inbouwmodules van Option verbinding maken met het nationale HSPA mobiele breedband netwerk van de operator. De SFR M! PC Pocket 3G+ is bovendien het eerste toestel dat gebruik maakt van Option’s Linux-gebaseerde connection management software.

De nieuwe SFR M! PC Pocket 3G+ - een MID met HSPA connectiviteit, 4,8 inch touchscreen, uitschuifbaar toestenbord, Intel Atom™ processor, 4GB geïntegreerd geheugen, die amper 325 gram weegt – biedt om het even waar, om het even wanneer toegang tot internet en populaire webdiensten zoals e-mail, instant messaging en sociale netwerken. GlobeTrotter Connect for Linux – de connection management software die door Option speciaal werd ontwikkeld voor MID’s de zijn gebaseerd op de Intel® Centrino® Atom™ processor technologie – beheert de breedbandverbinding van deze MID’s.

De Archos 3G+ – een MID met HSPA connectiviteit, 4,8 inch touchscreen met 16 miljoen kleuren en een opslagcapaciteit tot 30GB – biedt gebruikers een volkomen nieuwe ervaring voor zowel internet, digitale media als TV via deze dunne en ultrasnelle handheld tablet.

Option heeft in 2007 het initiatief opgezet om de toonaangevende leverancier te worden van 3G draadloze breedband connectiviteit voor de groeimarkt van de MID’s. Dankzij de overname vorig jaar van een gedeelte van het voormalige BenQ/Siemens Mobile R&D-team, en de nauwe samenwerking met Intel, is Option een belangrijke partner geworden voor de ODM’s (Original Design Manufacturer) en OEM’s (Original Equipment Manufacturer) in de MID-markt. Option en Intel hebben recent nog hun samenwerking uitgebreid voor de ontwikkeling van een nieuwe 3.5G HSPA inbouwmodule die bedoeld is voor het “Moorestown” platform, Intel’s volgende generatie platform voor MID’s. Onafhankelijke experts voorspellen dat tegen 2012 90 tot 136 miljoen MID’s over de toonbank zullen gaan.

LEUVEN, Belgium – October 21, 2008 – Option N.V. (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY) the wireless technology company, today announced that its GTM501 embedded module is providing 3G HSPA connectivity to a new ultra-compact Mobile Internet Device (MID) from USI (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 2350.tw).

Weighing 250g and with a thickness of just 1.5cm, the MID-160 is the smallest and lightest MIDs to date.

“USI’s MID-160 is another important milestone in our initiative to become the leading supplier of 3G wireless broadband connectivity to MID designers. This attractive product is further evidence of the importance of compact connectivity solutions, such as our GTM501, to the realisation of truly pocketable MIDs,” said Jan Callewaert, CEO of Option.

Gilbert Wei, President of USI, commented: “The MID-160 is designed to empower its users to enjoy PC-like Internet experiences anywhere and anytime.

MIDs are a new category of portable and pocketable web-centric devices for consumers and business professionals that allow users to communicate with others, be entertained, access information or participate in online gaming – all while on-the-go. ABI Research recently forecast that the market for ultra-mobile devices – which include Netbooks and MIDs – will reach 200 million units a year in 2013.

LEUVEN, België – 20 oktober 2008 – Option N.V. (EURONEXT Brussel: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), de specialist op het vlak van draadloze communicatie, kondigde vandaag aan dat het een nieuwe ingebouwde 3.5G HSPA inbouwmodule ontwikkelt voor Moorestown, Intel’s MID-platform (Mobile Internet Device – toestel voor mobiel breedband internet) gebaseerd op de Intel® Atom™ processor.

Option werkt al samen met Intel sinds 2007. Hierdoor werd Option het eerste bedrijf ter wereld dat een WWAN-module produceerde die klein genoeg was om in MID’s te passen die gebaseerd zijn op de Intel® Atom™ processor. De GTM501 van Option is de enige ingebouwde HSPA inbouwmodule die beschikbaar is in de ultracompacte LGA-behuizing. De GTM501 meet slechts 25 x 30 x 2,5 mm, waardoor het ‘s werelds kleinste HSPA inbouwmodule is.

“Met Moorestown zet Intel haar vermaarde traditie van de wet van Moore verder. Ze doet dit door de verwerkingssnelheid te vergroten, het aantal functies uit te breiden en tegelijk het plaatsgebruik en energieverbruik drastisch te verkleinen”, zegt Jan Callewaert, CEO van Option. “Option’s continue innovaties in deze nieuwe 3.5G HSPA inbouwmodule zullen toonaangevende draadloze oplossingen voor connectiviteit naar Intel’s next generation Moorestown platform brengen.”

“Draadloze verbindingen van een hoge performantie zijn cruciaal voor het succes van toestellen voor mobiel breedband internet”, zegt Anand Chandrasekher, Intel’s Senior Vice President en General Manager Ultra Mobility Group. “Option’s expertise en ervaring met HSPA inbouwmodules in combinatie met Intel’s innovatieve oplossingen, zoals hoge performantie en laag verbruik, zullen er voor zorgen dat de next generation Moorestown platformen altijd verbonden zijn met het internet.”

MID’s zijn een nieuwe categorie draagbare en compacte internetgerichte toestellen voor consumenten en zakenmensen. Communiceren met anderen, ontspanning zoeken, informatie opzoeken of online games spelen: het kan allemaal, waar je ook bent. Volgens een recente prognose van ABI Research zullen tegen 2013 zo’n 200 miljoen ultramobiele toestellen – o.a. Netbooks en MIDs – per jaar over de toonbank gaan.

New red dot product design award for iCON 401 LEUVEN, Belgium – September 11, 2008 – Option N.V. (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the wireless technology company, today announced that its iCON 401 USB modem, recent winner of the red dot award in the product design category, is shipping commercially through distributors in South Africa, Norway, Finland, Germany, Italy and the UK.

Option is working with distribution partners to open up indirect channels to fulfil incremental sales opportunities and expand the overall wireless broadband market. The initiative is expanding Option’s indirect distribution into IT channels and regional mobile operators.

EMCOM, Option’s distribution partner in Norway, was recently awarded an order for the iCON 401 by the local operator Network Norway. Haavard Vinsrygg, managing director EMCOM, said, “Option’s flexibility and customization capabilities coupled with our local support and logistics made this uniquely stylish and high performance device a compelling proposition for our customer.”

The performance and design elements of the iCON 401, unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in February 2008, were highlighted again in winning the prestigious red dot award in the product design category. The international “red dot design award” ranks among the largest and most renowned design competitions in the world. It is the second major award for the iCON 401 having also won the German iF product design award earlier in the year. The international jury of the red dot organization, a group of jurors made up of renowned designers and design experts from all over the world, praised its unique combination of design and performance:

• The lightweight USB device weighs just 40 grams

• Supporting HSPA 7.2 Mbps, it is capable of downloading a typical MP3 file in less than five seconds. It also offers upload speeds of up to 2 Mbps

• Its micro SD memory expansion slot, supporting up to 8 GB of memory, facilitates the sharing of files with consumer electronic devices and PCs

• Its built-in triple-band HSPA and quad-band EDGE/GPRS enables travelers to access e-mail and the Internet virtually anywhere, anytime

Nieuwe red dot product design award voor iCON 401

LEUVEN, België – 11 september 2008 – Option N.V. (EURONEXT Brussel: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), de specialist op het vlak van draadloze communicatie, kondigde vandaag aan dat de iCON 401 USB modem, die onlangs de red dot award in de categorie product design in de wacht sleepte, commercieel wordt verdeeld via plaatselijke distributeurs in Zuid-Afrika, Noorwegen, Finland, Duitsland, Italië en het VK.

Option werkt samen met distributiepartners om indirecte kanalen te openen, tegemoet te komen aan de toenemende verkoopsopportuniteiten en de algemene markt van de draadloze breedband uit te breiden. Dit initiatief verhoogt de indirecte distributie van Option bij IT-kanalen en regionale mobiele operatoren.

EMCOM, de distributiepartner van Option in Noorwegen, heeft onlangs een bestelling voor de iCON 401 door de plaatselijke Noorse operator Network Norway binnengehaald. Haavard Vinsrygg, directeur van EMCOM Noorwegen: “Dankzij de flexibiliteit van Option en de bekwaamheid om zich aan te passen aan de klant, gecombineerd met onze plaatselijke ondersteuning en logistiek, is dit stijlvolle en hoogperformante product erg aantrekkelijk voor onze klant.”

De iCON 401, die werd voorgesteld tijdens het Mobile World Congress in februari 2008, levert inderdaad topprestaties in een aantrekkelijk design en dat werd opnieuw beloond, ditmaal met de prestigieuze red dot award in de categorie product design. Deze internationale “red dot design award” heeft haar plaats tussen de grootste en meest gerenommeerde designcompetities ter wereld. Dit is de tweede grote bekroning voor de iCON 401 die eerder dit jaar al een Duitse iF product design award in de wacht sleepte.

De internationale jury van de red dot organisatie, samengesteld uit vermaarde designers en designexperts van over de hele wereld, prees de unieke combinatie van ontwerp en puike prestaties:

• het lichtgewicht USB toestel weegt slechts 40 gram;

• het ondersteunt HSPA 7.2 Mbps, waardoor het een gewoon MP3-bestand in minder dan vijf seconden kan downloaden. Het levert ook uploadsnelheden tot 2 Mbps;

• een expansiepoort, die een microSD-geheugenkaart tot 8 GB geheugen ondersteunt, vergemakkelijkt het uitwisselen van bestanden met elektronische apparatuur en pc’s;

• dankzij zijn ingebouwde triple-band HSPA en quad-band EDGE/GPRS krijgen reizigers virtueel overal en altijd e-mail- en internettoegang.

World’s first 5.76 Mbps-capable HSUPA device supports 900 MHz frequency bands

Leuven, Belgium – August 28, 2008 – Option N.V. (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the wireless technology company, today announced that it started shipping a new, stylish and high performance wireless broadband ExpressCard to Vodafone.

Exclusively developed for the Vodafone Group and its Partner Networks, the new ExpressCard is designed to achieve peak HSDPA download speeds of 7.2 Mbps with HSUPA uploads at up to 5.76 Mbps - depending on the network availability. This is the first commercial device in the market based on Qualcomm’s state-of-the-art MSM7225 chipset. The new ExpressCard offers the best combination of upload and download speeds available today, and uniquely, can support high speeds in downlink and uplink concurrently. Customers and network operators are demanding higher speeds for the improved user-experience when accessing social networks, posting content and videos to blogs and websites such as YouTube and Wikipedia, and using applications such as real-time location services.

The ExpressCard also sets a new benchmark by supporting HSDPA and HSUPA in the 900 MHz band. This extra band satisfies a growing need among mobile operators, especially in Europe and Australia, who are using the band to upgrade their legacy 2G networks to 3G in order to improve mobile broadband coverage in buildings and to extend the reach of their broadband offerings in rural areas.

“The development program for this new product was based on Option’s long-standing relationship with the Vodafone Group. A stylish design is important for mass-market appeal, while the unprecedented growth of voice and data traffic in the 2100Mhz band is making HSPA support in the 900 MHz band a commercial imperative. Our new device is the first commercially available HSPA ExpressCard in the world to incorporate support for that 900Mhz band,” said Jan Callewaert, CEO of Option.

Initial shipments have been delivered to Elisa, the Vodafone partner network in Finland and the world’s first commercial 3G HSPA 900 MHz operator. Other operators within the Vodafone Group of Companies are also planning commercial roll-outs of the new device.

’s Werelds eerste HSUPA kaart geschikt voor 5.76 Mbps ondersteunt 900 MHz frequentiebanden

Leuven, België - 28 augustus 2008 - Option N.V. (EURONEXT Brussel: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), de specialist op het vlak van draadloze communicatie, kondigde vandaag aan dat het gestart is met de leveringen van een nieuwe, stijlvolle en hoogperformante draadloze breedband ExpressCard aan Vodafone.

Deze nieuwe ExpressCard, exclusief ontwikkeld voor de Vodafone Group en haar partnernetwerk, is ontworpen om HSDPA downloadtopsnelheden van 7.2 Mbps te halen, gecombineerd met HSUPA uploadsnelheden tot 5.76 Mbps, afhankelijk van de mogelijkheden van het netwerk. Dit is het eerste commerciële product dat is gebaseerd op de gloednieuwe MSM7225 chipset van Qualcomm. De nieuwe ExpressCard biedt de beste combinatie van upload- en downloadsnelheden die vandaag de dag beschikbaar is en kan, als enige, hoge snelheden in downlink en uplink tegelijkertijd ondersteunen. Klanten en mobiele operatoren vragen steeds hogere snelheden voor een betere ervaring wanneer gebruikers toegang hebben tot sociale netwerken, inhoud en video’s toevoegen aan blogs en websites zoals YouTube en Wikipedia, en/of wanneer ze toepassingen gebruiken zoals realtime locatiegebaseerde diensten.

De ExpressCard zet meteen ook de nieuwe standaard door HSDPA en HSUPA te ondersteunen in de 900 MHz frequentieband. Deze extra frequentieband komt tegemoet aan de groeiende vraag van mobiele operatoren, vooral in Europa en Australië, die deze band gebruiken om hun bestaande 2G-netwerken te upgraden naar 3G om zo de mobiele breedbanddekking in gebouwen te verbeteren en ook het bereik van hun breedbandaanbod in landelijke gebieden uit te breiden.

“Het ontwikkelingsprogramma voor dit nieuwe product bouwt verder op Options langdurige relatie met de Vodafone Group. Een stijlvol ontwerp is een belangrijke troef voor de consumentenmarkt, terwijl de ongekende groei van zowel voice- als dataverkeer over de 2100 MHz band ervoor zorgt dat HSPA-ondersteuning in de 900 MHz band een commerciële noodzaak wordt. Onze nieuwe datakaart is wereldwijd de eerste HSPA ExpressCard met ondersteuning voor deze 900 MHz band die commercieel gelanceerd wordt”, zei Jan Callewaert, CEO van Option.

De eerste leveringen van de ExpressCard waren bestemd voor Elisa, het partnernetwerk van Vodafone in Finland en de eerste 3G HSPA 900 MHz operator ter wereld. Andere operatoren binnen de Vodafone Group plannen eveneens commerciële lanceringen van dit nieuw product.

IDF, San Francisco, USA – August 19, 2008 – Option N.V. (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the wireless technology company, today announced that its embedded wireless modules and Linux-based connection management software have been selected by Compal Electronics (Taiwan: 2324.tw) to provide HSPA 3G connectivity to a new range of Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs). The Compal Group is the world’s second largest original device manufacturer (ODM) - a specialist manufacturer of products on behalf of major brands. The company has a market capitalization of 4 billion US dollar.

“The multi-year agreement represents a key milestone in our initiative to become the leading supplier of 3G wireless broadband connectivity in the emerging market for MIDs,” said Jan Callewaert, CEO Option. “In less than a year, our acquisition of part of the former BenQ/Siemens Mobile R&D resources and our collaboration with Intel have made Option an important partner for ODMs and OEMs within the MID ecosystem.”

Independent analysts forecast that demand for always-connected Mobile Internet Devices could reach 90 million units a year by 2012.

The first Compal product is an MID with integrated multimedia player and retractable keyboard which offers anywhere, anytime access to the internet and popular web-based services such as email, instant messaging and social networks. The device incorporates GPS to enable it to take advantage of innovative location based services and applications. The new MID also includes GlobeTrotter Connect for Linux: connection management software specially developed by Option for Mobile Internet Devices based on the Intel® Centrino® Atom™ processor technology. Option is currently working with Compal to secure certification and operator validation for this device in multiple markets.

Based on Option’s ultra-compact GTM501 wireless module, a Developers Kit has been assembled to enable ODMs to develop 3G connectivity solutions for their mobile internet devices and other portable consumer electronic devices. The Developers Kit is already shipping to ODMs and OEMs. With the GTM501, the GlobeTrotter Connect for Linux and the Developers Kit, Option clearly demonstrates that it is ready to contribute to the success of the new MID category.

Compal’s new MID will feature on the Option booth (N° 412) at IDF, the Intel Developer Forum, in San Francisco (August 19-21) where Option will also be demonstrating GlobeTrotter Connect for Linux and its new GTM501 Developers Kit.
