Neonode Launches e-Book Touchscreen Platform

Published January 28, 2010 in News

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, January 28, 2010 – Neonode, Inc. (NEON.OB), the Swedish Optical Touchscreen
Technology Company, today announced the launch of zBook a new low cost touch screen reference design for
e-book readers. zBook is the latest in a series of new innovative products based on the Company’s patented
touchscreen technology, zForce. The zBook reference design is aimed squarely at companies who develop and sell
e-book readers that require 100% transparent touch windows, finger and stylus input and multi-touch functionality.

“Electronic ink and reflective thin film transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) panels with no backlight used
in e-book readers need a 100 % transparent touch solution to achieve the desired “paper like” reading experience.
Current touch solutions like resistive and capacitive reduce the brightness and contrast of the display and have a
negative impact on the user experience. Our new e-book touch screen platform, zBook, fulfills the need for both
consumers and manufacturers and will usher in a new era of e-books using full featured touchscreen applications.”
said Thomas Eriksson, CEO of Neonode Technology AB.

Neonode delivers a touch solution that is many times more cost effective than any other high performance touch
solution in the market today. Our zForce technology incorporates all functionality and performance features from
traditional touch solutions like resistive and capacitive. zForce supports high resolution pen input, multi-finger
touch, gestures like zooming combined with superior picture quality. zForce is currently being integrated into
products such as mobile phones, mobile internet devices, e-books, digital picture frames and tablet PC’s.
