NEWARK, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/16/12 -- Socket Mobile, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCKT), an innovative provider of mobile productivity solutions, today announced a partnership with nSales, a developer of mobile software for sales force automation. The collaboration enables sales representatives to quickly enter orders, look up account information, and check inventory levels during customer visits using a stylish, easy-to-use solution based on the Apple iPad.

The partnership combines the Socket Bluetooth® Cordless Hand Scanner (CHS) 7Xi, a small and lightweight portable barcode reader that has been certified by Apple for the iPad and other iOS devices, with nVision Mobile sales and CRM software, which nSales developed with the SocketScan 10 Software Development Kit from Socket Mobile.

"Socket Mobile has an excellent reputation as a mobile device manufacturer, and nSales is proud to offer Socket barcode scanners with our nVision Mobile sales and CRM solution to our customers in the clothing, jewelry and gift industries," said Lasse Styner Rostock, CEO of nSales. "Not only do our customers appreciate Socket barcode scanners for their high quality and ease of use with the Apple iPad, but developers at nSales found the Socket SDK to be well written and well documented, allowing us to add customized barcode scanning support to our software in only a few days."

"Socket Mobile is pleased to partner with nSales to offer a powerful sales force automation solution based on the Apple iPad," said Mike Gifford, executive vice president at Socket Mobile. "With applications from experienced developers like nSales and effective hardware peripherals like the Socket CHS barcode scanner, the Apple iPad can be elevated from a consumer device to an indispensible business tool for mobile workers."
