Interlink Electronics Introduces World's First Bluetooth Media Remote Control for Notebook Computers with ExpressCard; Company Offers Consumer Market an Innovative Remote Control for Notebook Computers.

CAMARILLO, Calif. -- Interlink Electronics, Inc. (Pink Sheets:LINK), a global leader in the design, development and manufacture of human interface products and technologies, today introduced an ExpressCard sized, Bluetooth Media Remote Control. The remote is the first to combine the wireless freedom of Bluetooth with the convenience of a rechargeable battery in an ExpressCard form factor. It enables notebook users to control entertainment software from the comfort of the couch, even when the couch and computer are in different rooms. Called ExpressCard Media Remote for Bluetooth, it is designed to be used with Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition, Dell Media Experience and other popular software, including Windows Media Player, Apple iTunes, Real Player, Nullsoft WinAmp, CyberLink PowerDVD and InterVideo WinDVD. The remote uses the ExpressCard slot featured in the new generation of notebook computers for both storage and charging, so it is always available and ready for use.

"The popularity of digital music, photos and videos is transforming notebook computers into portable entertainment centers," said E. Michael Thoben, Chairman, CEO and President of Interlink Electronics, Inc. "One missing ingredient for a satisfying entertainment experience is a reliable remote control that is optimized for notebook use. ExpressCard Media Remote for Bluetooth fills this void."

"ExpressCard Media Remote for Bluetooth is also the first product developed by Interlink Electronics that targets the growing consumer notebook market," continued Mr. Thoben. "This product demonstrates our commitment to innovation in pursuit of new markets. IDC reported the mix of consumer notebook shipments eclipsed that of corporate for the first time in 2005, and forecasts a 20% CAGR (from 2005-2010) for consumer notebooks versus 15% for corporate notebooks."

"In addition to enhancing the notebook entertainment experience, the remote is a very effective and powerful tool for giving PowerPoint presentations," said Mr. Reisteter, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Interlink Electronics. "The convenience of a remote designed to store and recharge in the ExpressCard slot is ideal for people on the move. PowerPoint users will appreciate the extra confidence of knowing the remote is always there, fully charged and ready to use."
