Immersion Corporation (NASDAQ:IMMR), the leading developer and licensor
of touch feedback technology, today announced that it has entered into a
multi-year worldwide license agreement with Huawei Device (Dongguan)
Co., Ltd., the third largest global supplier of smartphones according to
IDC. This first direct license agreement with Huawei for Immersion’s
haptic software, TouchSense® 3000, enables Huawei to add tactile
feedback to certain Huawei branded mobile devices to create rich,
multi-dimensional user experiences.
“At Huawei, our goal is to offer high-quality, well-designed devices to
consumers. Touch and tactile feedback is a natural part of how we
understand and communicate with the world. We’re working with Immersion
to leverage their expertise in how to bring the best haptic experiences
to our products,” said Wu Dezhou, VP of Honor brand devices at Huawei.
Immersion TouchSense software creates an unlimited number of
customizable, high-quality, power-efficient tactile effects that enhance
mobile user interfaces, applications and services. The technology
enables device manufacturers to create distinctive and intuitive user
experiences by adding touch feedback throughout the device for better
usability, greater realism and enhanced interactivity.
“Huawei is building leading full-feature smartphones to fit the busy
lifestyle of today’s users, and tactile feedback is one of those
must-have features for any smartphone,” said Dennis Sheehan, SVP of
sales and marketing at Immersion. “In addition to being at the center of
a person’s communication, the smartphone is now used for many other
things, such as entertainment and information discovery. With
Immersion’s technology, mobile manufacturers can improve and
differentiate their user experiences by adding an entirely new dimension
to their devices. We’re pleased that Huawei has chosen to license
TouchSense and look forward to working with them to bring innovative
tactile experiences to users.”
