Tiger Telematics Inc today confirmed its USA release date of October 22, 2005 for Gizmondo and announced further retailers carrying the product in the United Kingdom. Carl Freer, co-founder and Chairman, Tiger Telematics, says: "Contrary to rumors in the marketplace we are not delaying the scheduled USA launch, we are committed to the October 22, 2005 release date, and the product will be available in all 50 states well in advance of the Christmas retail season."
The extensive list of UK retailers continues to grow following the demand generated by the new Satellite Navigation package. Previously announced retailers like Comet (a leading UK electrical supplier with 264 stores), Argos (the UKs #1 catalogue-based highstreet retailer), Carphone Warehouse, HMV, Virtual Games, Harrods, Amazon and the top-10 destination John Lewis stores, are joined by Play.com and Maplin.
