LAS VEGAS, June 8, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aerius International Inc., (Pink Sheets:AERS) today announced prototypes of Aerius smart phones were shipped by their manufacturer in Shenzhen, China to Aerius. The Aerius engineer in Shenzhen Rani Wu also reported the phones were equipped with Aerius LogoLens that illuminates the carrier name when phones are in use.

Aerius won a Frost & Sullivan Green Technology in Wireless Technologies Award because in carrier and CTIA lab tests Aerius equipped phones increase smart phone battery life 2 to 4 hours and reduced dropped calls over 60%. Also, based on tests by the FCC Aerius phones reduce handset power loss into users or SAR, an average 99.4%.

Statistics from the International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts the smartphone market will reach 450 million smartphones in 2011. According to Aerius CEO Bill Luxon, if Aerius smart phones capture less than 1% of the market Aerius will sell over one million phones in 2011.

According to Chuck Closterman Aerius VP of Sales, buyers with cell phone retailers in the US who reviewed performance of Aerius phones have reported, "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."

Luxon added, "Strong interest in selling Aerius phones has been received by major carriers and cell phone retailers as soon as Aerius smart phones become available."

"FCC, carrier, and independent CTIA lab reports on performance of Aerius phones, and the Frost & Sullivan Award to Aerius in Wireless Technologies are posted in 6 languages on the Aerius website at www.goaerius.com," said Closterman.
