CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/13 --  Cobra Electronics
Corporation (NASDAQ: COBR), the leading designer and marketer of
award-winning mobile and consumer electronics, today announced its
Cobra iRadar(R) ATOM(TM) was named as a finalist in the Mobile Apps
category for Automotive, LBS, Navigation and Safe Driving of CTIA's
annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards competition. The CTIA
E-Tech Awards honor the industry's most innovative new wireless
products and services in mobile apps, consumer electronics,
enterprise and vertical markets and network. Winners will be
announced at CTIA 2013(TM), taking place May 21-23, 2012 at the Sands
Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas. 
The Cobra iRadar ATOM is the most innovative and technologically
advanced radar/laser/camera detection system on the market. It
employs smaller components than its predecessor, the Cobra iRadar
200, while packing in Cobra's highest performance platform, making it
the smallest footprint in the industry and 35 percent smaller than
the iRadar 200. It allows users to share alerts in real time when
connected via Bluetooth(R) with the iRadar app and via cellular data
services with the iRadar Community. The iRadar Community lets users
report and warn other users nearby of live police, caution areas and
photo enforcement areas. Its companion smartphone app displays a host
of valuable information including speed, compass heading,
location-based mapping, maximum speed setting and an array of
warnings from the iRadar ATOM and other iRadar users nearby. 
"The CTIA E-Tech Awards are a respected presence in the world of
wireless products and services, so all of us at Cobra are honored to
be chosen as a finalist in the emerging technology market," said
Sally Washlow, president of Cobra Electronics. "The iRadar ATOM is
the smallest, most powerful and most user-friendly radar detector on
the market, and since we all rely so heavily on our smartphones
today, pairing the unit to a user's smartphone offers a large,
high-resolution and familiar display packed with important
information and powerful features -- all at an affordable price." 
Nearly 300 entries were judged by a panel of highly-respected
industry experts, reporters and analysts. Submissions were scored on
innovation, functionality, technological importance, implementation
and overall "wow" factor. E-Tech winners, including Best in Show and
Online Pick will be announced at the awards ceremony on Wednesday,
May 22 at 2:00 p.m. PDT at CTIA's Exhibit Innovations Stage on the
trade show floor within CTIA World, booth #5646. 
Between now and May 20, website visitors may vote for the "Best
Online Pick" at CTIA 2013 show attendees

display to win "Best in Show."
