Newport Digital Technologies Inc., a technology solutions driven company focused on the wireless technology space, recently announced that it had implemented the licensing agreement with Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) to develop applications for its Windows Mobile platform.

In conjunction with leading Taiwan-based R&D technology incubators, Newport Digital Technologies is commercializing a number of leading-edge radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies. The first product is the N37B Ruggedized Handheld RFID reader and computing device. The N37B will offer options that includes a 3G connection module and location/navigation based GPS.

The innovative N37B, which will run on Microsoft’s Mobile Computing platform, has wide application in the RFID market. Newport Digital Technologies will offer this device, along with a comprehensive line of mobile computing products and solutions targeting RFID field applications, for asset tracking, inventory management and point-of-sale for various business-to-business markets.
