San Diego, California--(Newsfile Corp. - April 17, 2023) - Sonim Technologies (NASDAQ: SONM) today announced a new purchase order for $14.7 million in tablet products designed by Sonim and assembled via an ODM relationship. Sonim expects to ship the newest purchase order starting from the second quarter of 2023.
The latest tablet order adds to more than $44 million in tablet orders delivered since the new management team was appointed and implemented a growth and diversification strategy. The new tablet revenue streams exemplify Sonim's strategy to expand into large adjacent markets by leveraging its engineering expertise, rugged heritage and ODM capabilities to provide solutions in such areas as consumer durable and industrial equipment mobile devices.
Additionally, Sonim has announced that it fully refreshed the rugged mobile device lineup at North American Tier One carrier partners, including its new XP10 5G Android smartphone device.
"The Sonim team has executed well on our new management team's strategy to enter large and underserved markets adjacent to our core rugged capabilities," said Sonim CEO Peter Liu. "Additionally, with a fully refreshed core rugged mobile device family of products now available for North American carrier partners, we believe Sonim is well positioned to continue growing revenue and moving toward our goal of profitable operations."
The ODM-built tablet features an eight-inch display with 4G LTE connectivity running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. The tablet targets both enterprise and consumer applications, including service and education applications. The new tablet project is not expected to represent inventory risk for Sonim, as the tablets are built to customer purchase orders.
