UMX handsets have also already been certified and launched at a number of rural and regional carriers," stated T. A. "Kip" Hyde, Jr., President and COO of Teletouch. "Based on initial customer interest, we expect significant multi-million dollar sales growth from this product line, through our PCI Wholesale subsidiary, during the second-half of fiscal 2013."
