IRVINE, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Location Based Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: LBAS) a leading service provider of asset tracking GPS devices, has begun fulfillment of the $880,000 purchase order that was placed by a leading telecommunications carrier in October of 2012. Delivery is expected to be complete in approximately 30 days.
“We believe the PF-886 is going to be an industry game-changer as the first run of the PF-886 devices is completely sold out,” said Dave Morse, CEO of Location Based Technologies. “Additionally, a number of other companies are evaluating the PF-886 device for their asset tracking needs. There is a large void in the GPS market for a rugged asset tracking device with a long battery life, and the 886 is a perfect solution.”
The PF-886 operates on the 2G and 3G wireless network and is approximately 4.4 inches long and 2.2 inches wide and weighs only 5.7 ounces. The PF-886 is waterproof and can operate for several months on a single charge based on power setting options.
