New orders and new rugged phones expected to drive fourth quarter sequential growth
San Diego, Calif.–(Newsfile Corp. – Nov. 30, 2022) – Sonim Technologies (NASDAQ:SONM) today announced an additional customer purchase order for $17 million of tablets designed by Sonim and assembled through an ODM relationship . Sonim expects to ship the last purchase order beginning in the fourth quarter and continuing through 2023, driving sequential revenue growth through the third quarter of 2022.
The latest tablet order follows $13.9 million in tablet orders delivered in the third quarter. The new device revenue streams illustrate Sonim’s strategy to expand into the broader consumer durable and industrial equipment market by leveraging its engineering expertise, robust heritage and ODM capabilities.
Additionally, Sonim announced the availability of its new Android XP10 5G smartphone, completing the refresh of its line of rugged mobile devices sold through North American Tier 1 carrier partners.
“We continue to implement the new leadership team’s strategy to deliver purpose-built mobile devices to our carrier partners while entering large and underserved markets adjacent to our core robust capabilities,” said Peter Liu, CEO from Sonim. “Additionally, with the recently announced launch of our XP10 rugged 5G smartphone, our core family of rugged mobile devices is fully refreshed and available to North American carrier partners. We believe Sonim is now well positioned to further increase its revenue through an exciting set of robust opportunities and new core industrial and consumer applications as we steadily progress towards our goal of profitable operations.”
The ODM-built tablet features an eight-inch display with 4G LTE connectivity running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. The tablet targets both enterprise and consumer applications, including service and education applications. The new tablet project should not represent an inventory risk for Sonim, as the tablets are built according to customer purchase orders.
