X2 debuting 20 consumer electronic gadgets at CES

Los Angeles-Based Serial Entrepreneurs to Develop Innovative Product Line of Digital Entertainment Products; X2 Will Roll Out More than 25 Products by 2005 Consumer Electronics Show

(IRVINE, CA) - X2 Corporation, a global manufacturer and direct marketer of digital convergence products, today announces that it will debut more than 25 cutting -edge consumer electronics products between now and the

2005 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, 2005. X2 represents a revolutionary new business model, reducing time -to -market and inventory control to days, not months, by using a sophisticated supply chain management system to create exactly the products its customers want in near real time, according to Rex Wong, President.

The result, according to Wong, is "like the Dell direct distribution model on steroids." Key to the rapid development and deployment of these products to the market is X2's high -level strategic relationship with Micro -Star International (MSI), a top -tier $2 billion, Taiwan -based manufacturer of computer and consumer electronics hardware, including motherboards, graphic cards and optical storage devices. X2's positioning in the marketplace is to debut and deliver products in the US weeks to months ahead of its competition, and typically at higher price -performance ratios, by leveraging its innovative business model.
"X2's innovative supply chain model is revolutionary and MSI is proud to be a key X2 partner," said Brandon LuTran, Consumer Electronics category manager at MSI.

"What separates X2 from every consumer electronics company in the world right now is that we can go from market demand projection to shipping final product in as little as two days," said Wong. "Most Asian consumer electronics manufacturers go through two to three tiers of distribution domestically, which slows innovation, adds costs and leads to imprecise demand prediction. We will be able to provide the widest selection of quality digital media products of any manufacturer in the world, with lower prices, consistently high quality and more new features because we can add them in days, as well as make smaller batch orders for specialty products."

X2 plans to offer an array of popular digital media products ranging from Media PC Centers to hybrid MP3 players and pocket video recorder/viewers with innovative features such as Bluetooth and removable SD memory storage. In addition, X2 will offer a variety of LCD televisions, super -thin notebook computers with auto -on playback of DVDs, and PC products for gamers.

X2's products will be available at leading retailers and e -tailers, which will be announced shortly. In addition, X2 will allow select retailers to offer its products through a customized, etailer -like model where the retailer carries no inventory risk and gets a customized product delivered within days. Some of the lower -end, standard -feature
MP3 players will also be carried by traditional mass merchandisers.
