FAIRFAX, Va. & BEIJING--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 16, 2004

Extends Xybernaut Efforts in People's Republic of China; New Solutions Feature Xybernaut Technologies

Xybernaut(R) Corporation (NASDAQ:XYBR) today announced that Xybernaut China Ltd., the Company's joint venture with Softbank Strategic, has completed agreements with China Electronics Corporation (CEC) and Golden Cellular Communications (GCC), a CEC subsidiary company. CEC is one of the largest electronics conglomerates in China.

Under one of the completed agreements, GCC has developed two new technology solutions for the medical and power industries that have been tailored for delivery on Xybernaut mobile/wearable technologies. Initially, these solutions are being offered with Xybernaut Mobile Assistant(R) (MA V(R)) and Atigo(R) products. In related news, GCC is also now actively promoting and beginning to sell these medical and power systems solutions within the greater China marketplace.

The medical solutions are being introduced at the International Medical Equipment Exhibition (IMEE), which was held this week in Wuhan, China. More than 125,000 professionals and executives from the Asian medical community are expected to attend the IMEE conference. The GCC-Xybernaut technologies offer a complete solution that meets the unique needs of various medical communities -- from ambulance paramedics responding to a call for assistance, to emergency room procedures, to hospital operations management from patient admission until discharge.

The power systems solutions assist in applications such as field force automation, inspection/maintenance/repair, asset tracking/management and enterprise knowledge management.

Xybernaut experience and expertise in the medical, utility/power systems and other industries have been incorporated into the joint offerings.

Ming He, GCC CEO, stated, "We have been offering similar software and processes on other platforms, but they have always fallen short of meeting our constituency's needs. With the availability now of Xybernaut mobile/wearable systems and its line of smart displays, we have finally found the right marriage of hardware and software for our clients. We expect a very aggressive roll-out to our existing clients and the market at large."

Lam Phung, CEO of Xybernaut China, Ltd., commented, "CEC/GCC is one of China's finest companies, with support at the most senior levels of the PRC government; we are very proud to have them as a key member of our Xybernaut team here in China. The first two industry sectors they selected are directly in line with our own experiences in the USA and elsewhere; in this case, GCC's own direct market research with current customers affirmed their decision to team with Xybernaut."

Ed Newman, chairman and CEO of Xybernaut Corporation, added that GCC management and Xybernaut China executives are also working together to see how both companies can leverage CEC's existing customer base of well over ten million commercial and consumer cell phone users.
