ZOOM TELEPHONICS ANNOUNCES THE SHIPMENT OF FIRST POCKET FAXMODEMS
 FOR PC-COMPATIBLE AND MACINTOSH NOTEBOOK COMPUTERS
 BOSTON, Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Zoom Telephonics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZOOMF) today announced that it is now shipping its first pocket faxmodem for PC-compatible and Macintosh notebook computers. The Zoom/FaxModem PKT is a 5.2-ounce shirt-pocket size 2400 bps data modem with send/receive fax capability and very low power usage. Its suggested retail price is $149 for MS-DOS and Macintosh models, and $169 for Windows models.
 The PKT can be powered from any of three power sources -- a standard nine-volt battery, a compact power adapter provided with the PKT, or pin nine of the PC compatibles that provide power to this pin of the serial port. A power-saving feature switches the PKT to a low-power sleep mode when the PKT is on-hook and not receiving a command or detecting an incoming ring. Even in the highest-power condition when the PKT is sending and receiving data, typical alkaline battery life is seven hours.
 The Zoom/FaxModem PKT has four indicator lights including a low- battery indicator, dual phone jacks, a high-quality micro speaker for call progress monitoring, and a one-foot serial cable. It comes with software for data and fax communications, including Wordperfect's MTEZ for the MS-DOS model, Winfax Lite for Windows and STF LC for the Macintosh. MTEZ enables the PKT's Rockwell Protocol Interface for V.42bis data compression, V.42bis error-correction, and MNP.
 The PKT will be available to end-users from Zoom's retailers including Egghead, Best Buy, Computer City, PC Connection, Micro Warehouse, and Infotel. Dealers will be able to buy the PKT from Zoom's regional and national distributors, including Ingram, Micro, Merisel, and Tech Data.
