magicJack Wins Consumer Electronics Vendor of the Year Award From RadioShack
November 30, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. and NETANYA, Israel — magicJack VocalTec, Ltd., the Voice Experts and cloud communications leader that invented voice over IP (VoIP) and sold over nine million magicJacks®, recently announced that RadioShack® awarded magicJack as its Consumer Electronics Vendor of the Year. RadioShack was the first large retailer to carry the magicJack device enabling consumers to save billions of dollars. The magicJack was previously awarded the Most Innovative Product of the Year by RadioShack.
magicJack CEO Dan Borislow was particularly honored by the award, stating, "I started going to RadioShack as a very young boy over 45 years ago to ask and learn about electronic projects. As an inventor and gadget guy who wants the best, RadioShack is still one of my favorite stores to buy new innovative high quality products and educate myself by talking with their knowledgeable and helpful staff. RadioShack was the first large retailer to carry our products because they were nimble enough to make a decision and then put magicJack on their shelves very quickly. magicJack people take care of the details, working hard to keep its retailers happy, and most importantly magicJack has the largest ongoing short form 15 second ad spend in the United States and Canada supporting its retailers. I never dreamed when I was in elementary school that a company I would be in charge of would become Consumer Electronics Vendor of the Year from such a prestigious retailer with a 90 year history of excellence."
magicJack also announced it released its third quarter 2012 results for the period ending September 30, 2012 before the market opened on Friday, October 19, 2012. Following the release, magicJack hosted a conference call for investors at 10:00 a.m. ET.
