LAS VEGAS, Feb. 3, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aerius International, Inc. CEO Bill Luxon (Pink Sheets:AERS) today announced Aerius had met with HDC, a manufacturer of cell phones for Motorola and others in Shenzhen China, and reported HDC will manufacture Aerius smart phones and provide HDC office space for an Aerius Shenzhen engineer to work with HDC personnel.

Aerius won a Frost & Sullivan Green Technology in Wireless Technologies Award because Aerius equipped phones have proven to add 4.5 dB more power to carrier networks, reduce dropped calls over 60%, and increase battery life 2 to 4 hours. Also, based on tests by the FCC, Aerius phones reduce SAR or the specific absorption rate of handset microwave radiation into users, 99.4%.

Statistics from the International Data Corporation (IDC) show vendors shipped over 400 million phones in the last quarter of 2010. IDC forecasts the smart phone market could grow by 43.7% year over year in 2011. According to Luxon, in the event Aerius smart phones capture just half of one percent of that market, Aerius could earn gross profits topping $80 million in 2011.

Cell phone buyers with retailers in the U.S. who reviewed the performance of Aerius phones have said, according to Chuck Closterman, Aerius VP International Sales, "If you put two phones side by side, they have similar features and one delivers 2 to 4 more hours of battery life and eliminates radiation absorption into the user, it's a no-brainer which one consumers will buy."

Aerius CEO Bill Luxon also reported there is strong interest in buying Aerius phones from major companies as soon as sales samples of new Aerius smart phones are available, and HDC reports Aerius samples will be ready in approximately 6 to 8 weeks from the end of Chinese New Year vacations February 12th.

FCC, carrier, and independent CTIA Authorized lab test reports on the performance of Aerius equipped phones can be reviewed unedited and in their entirety in English, French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese at www.goaerius.com.
