MGM Wireless seals new UK sales deal to expand rollout of SPACETALK device


Technology company MGM Wireless has secured a sales agreement with UK retailer Dixons Carphone to sell its SPACETALK all-in-one smartphone, watch and GPS device to customers through its Currys PC World online store.

The Australian-listed MGM Wireless (ASX:MWR) says SPACETALK will be available through Currys PC World online for £199, with customers able to purchase their own SIM and the AllMyTribe App, which retails in the UK for £3.99 per month.

MGM says the new agreement broadens access to SPACETALK in the UK as Dixons Carphone is a leading multinational consumer electrical and mobile retailer with annual sales in excess of £10 billion, and the owner of Currys PC World which is the largest specialist electrical retailing and services operator in the UK and Ireland.

MGM Wireless CEO Mark Fortunatow said: “Currys PC World is a top consumer electronics retailer and this deal furthers our UK rollout”.

"Our UK post-launch sales already are 70% above post-launch sales in Australia for the same time. Currys PC World is a destination brand for electronics and mobile consumers and part of a group which reported 700 million website visits for FY19.

“Increased availability of SPACETALK will help us capitalise on Sky’s marketing campaign which has lifted UK sales significantly since its commencement.”

MGM says it is in advanced negotiations with Australian and overseas-based telcos and bricks and mortar stores, including other Dixons Carphones stores, to further boost distribution of SPACETALK.

The new UK sales deal comes as MGM announced to shareholders that according to mobile App ranking site App Annie1, its AllMyTribe App was the number 1 Top grossing App on iOS and number 2 on Google.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?
