Although the company has been hit by some industry delays, customers can now finally place their pre-orders by going to the company’s website. Infinitec is giving customers who pre-order free delivery worldwide and promises to start shipping units on August 31st 2010.
Ahmad Zahran, Chief Executive Officer at Infinitec, enthusiastically, explained:
“We’ve been waiting for this day for a long time and preparing very hard for it. We’re extremely excited to finally be offering such a revolutionary product to the market and we hope that customers will get a sense on how much hard work has been put into it, especially into making something this complex and innovative as simple and easy to use as an MP3 player.”
The IUM is also the first consumer electronic product in the world to offer Dual-WiFi as a core feature. Dual-WiFi is the ability for a device to connect to two separate WiFi networks simultaneously. This will allow the user of the IUM to connect their computer’s WiFi to the IUM without losing their internet connection. In essence the IUM will connect to both the user’s computer and the home/office access point simultaneously and re-route internet traffic back to the user.
“Dual-WiFi is something that has been attempted by a few companies but never has it been done like this before,” said David McKern, Chief Marketing Officer at Infinitec. “We’ve been able to alter the DNA of WiFi networks, so to speak, to create a unique solution that gives our customers a complete and seamless experience. Without Dual-WiFi the user would have had to choose between connecting to the internet or using the IUM and this was not something we wanted for our customers.”
