nReach Kiosks To Take Off At LAX23 Jul, 2002 By: Hive News
Content kiosk developer nReach will debut its Mobile Content Kiosk at The Gate Escape's Internet Productivity Center at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) this September, the company announced today.
“The Gate Escape has the perfect solution for downtime at the airport,” said Mike Stemple, nReach founder and CEO. “From business to entertainment products, I believe our kiosk system will work seamlessly within their existing product lineup, as well as attract new customers to their location for a similar, yet mobile experience.” Under the agreement, nReach kiosks will be installed within two of The Gate Escape's locations at the Los Angeles International Airport: one at the Tom Bradley International Terminal and another at the United Airlines Concourse, Terminal 7. By first quarter 2003, The Gate Escape has plans to expand their exposure within new retail space at Terminal 1 and Terminal 3.
Products available through nReach kiosks include feature films, music, games, maps and guides, subscriptions, e-Books and software for users of handheld devices (Pocket PC, Palm OS, Linux, and MP3 Players), as well as ring tones, icons, games and screen savers for mobile phones.
To transfer items from the kiosk, customers simply insert their preferred media card into a corresponding slot and make a selection. The kiosk will then determine what type of device is being used; and, after a financial transaction, the appropriate file will be transferred within seconds (wirelessly for mobile phones).
To keep each kiosk up to date, content providers and location managers have access to the system and in seconds are able to manage their content, add/remove items, and update pricing.
“To add nReach's Mobile Content Kiosk was an easy decision to make,” said Gate Escape CEO John Gupta. “Our customer is constantly looking for technology advances that will improve their productivity and quality of life, and the kiosk has both. The possibilities for products and services [in the kiosk] are endless.”
