Handheld Electronic Yellow & White Pages Telephone Directory Device Patent to Be Offered for Sale at Ocean Tomo Live IP Auction in San Francisco on April 2nd

REDWOOD CITY, Calif – Clarke-Boler Technologies today announced that Lot #51a, comprised of patent #6,912,407 relating to a handheld device for storing, searching, and selecting telephone listing information, will be offered at the Ocean Tomo Spring 2008 Live IP Auction on April 2nd at The Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco.

The bulky and eco-unfriendly “Yellow Pages” phone book isn’t going to be around forever; now meet its electronic counterpart. Here is a pocket size device with which you can look up phone numbers at the touch of a button. Keep it on your desk, in your briefcase, purse or pocket! Save money on expensive 411 calls and have instant access to any listed number in the country anytime, because the phone numbers are built in!

As the paper phonebook fades away, the holder of this patent will be in a powerful position. Like the Yellow Pages, this electronic phone directory has the capability of generating advertising revenue through graphical ads and premium positioning. The patent allows the device to be updated often via wireless or PC sync. It can also be voice activated, “What city please?” As memory and technology are becoming increasingly more affordable, it is possible that this device could one day be found in every home, office, car, briefcase and purse in America!

Telephone and multiple service providers, directory information management technology developers, and handheld device manufacturers would all benefit from acquiring this Lot.

With approximately $50+ million in transactions closed to-date, the Ocean Tomo Live IP Auctions are often referred to by leading industry professionals as a “forum of commerce.” The events bring together hundreds of key decision-makers in the intellectual property and investment communities.
