Wilson Debuts in-Car Mobile Phone Signal Booster
St. George, Utah-based Wilson Electronics, a manufacturer of amplifiers and antennas for mobile phones and data cards, revealed Wednesday that it has launched a line of cellular signal booster kits for automobiles. The firm said its iBooster amplifier kits were designed to improve data and voice coverage for mobile phone users on the road. Wilson noted that its iBooster line currently consists of three kits: one for Apple's iPhone, one for BlackBerry's Curve, and a Universal model that should work with most other mobile phones. Wilson added that it expects the kits to retail for about $240. Wilson's products are used to boost cell phone reception, particularly in remote areas with spotty or weak cell phone coverage.
