NEW ORLEANS, May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ShowStoppers @ CTIA Wireless 2012 – Wilson Electronics (www.WilsonElectronics.com), manufacturer of North America's top-selling line of cellular signal boosters, announced at International CTIA Wireless 2012 the company's latest product in the world's first line of 4G mobile signal booster, the Sleek® 4G-A.
In areas with AT&T™ LTE service, the Sleek 4G-A will ensure a strong LTE signal as well as conventional 3G or 2G signals for all cellular providers. Benefits include fewer dropped connections and no-service "dead zones," faster data transfer rates and improved battery life for wireless devices.
The Sleek 4G-A is on display at CTIA Wireless 2012, booth 1925, May 8-10. It joins the Sleek 4G-V, which will soon be available, in the company's line of 4G mobile signal boosters.
The device, with an anticipated selling price of $129.95, boosts all carriers 3G and 2G cellular signals on 800 MHz and 1900 MHz frequency bands, as well as AT&T's 700 MHz LTE (bands 12 & 17). Designed for use in a vehicle, the Sleek 4G-A can also be used indoors with the purchase of an optional accessory kit – perfect for boosting signal to AT&T's 4G cellular internet hotspots.
"Devices operating on AT&T's 700 MHz LTE network can now benefit from Wilson signal boosting technology just as 3G and 2G devices have done for years," said Laine Matthews, Wilson's director of business development. "The Sleek 4G-A is an ideal all-in-one phone cradle and signal booster for hands-free use in a vehicle. That's especially important for commercial drivers who are now required by federal law to use a hands-free cell phone headset while behind the wheel."
The Sleek 4G-A will amplify any existing signal on 800 MHz and 1900 MHz bands. This allows the user to enjoy a strong, reliable cellular signal even when no AT&T LTE service is available.
The Sleek 4G-A delivers more than 20 times the power of a typical cell phone signal alone, but weighs only three ounces (85 grams) and measures just 2.5 by 4.5 by 2.5 inches (6.4 x 11.4 6.4 cm). Simple, do-it-yourself installation is done in a matter of minutes.
The Sleek 4G-A will be available in the third quarter of 2012 from most Wilson resellers. It is designed for ideal use with a Bluetooth headset or other hands-free device. Additionally, like all Wilson signal boosters, it features very sophisticated cell tower protection technologies developed over more than a decade of research and development.
