    Socket's Windows CE Ethernet Card is First to be Certified
    Compaq's H/PCs

    Compaq's C-Series are the First
    Windows CE-based Handheld PCs with Built-in

    NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 18,
    1998-- Socket Communications Inc. (OTC BB:SCKT -
    and SCKTW - news; PSE:SOK) today announced that the
    company's Low Power Ethernet (LP-E) Card has
    certified by Compaq Computer Corporation (NYSE:CPQ - news)
    for compatibility with Compaq's new C-Series
    of Windows CE-based handheld PCs.

    The LP-E
    Card is currently the only Ethernet adapter to pass
    Compaq's Ethernet connection tests for
    computers and is also the only PC Card Ethernet adapter to
    be certified by Microsoft for operation with
    CE. Compaq is the first manufacturer of Windows
    CE-based handheld PCs to provide improved, built-in
    drivers for browsing LAN resources that offer instant
    plug and play installation of Socket's Ethernet card.

    Socket's LP-E Card is a credit card sized Ethernet adapter
    that plugs into the PC Card slot of a Windows
    handheld PC (H/PC), giving the user a fast way to
    synchronize an H/PC with a partner desktop PC or notebook,
    files, perform system backup and restore, run e-mail,
    and browse the web. The LP-E connects to a Windows
    via 10BaseT twisted pair cable and transfers data at
    the rate of 10 megabits per second, 500 times faster
    than the
    over-the-cable speed of an H/PC's serial

    Another advantage of the LP-E Card over a
    serial connection is location independence -- instead of
    being limited to
    the length of a serial cable, users
    can establish a connection with a partner PC from
    anywhere on a local area network.
    As a member of
    Socket's Battery Friendly(TM) family of I/O adapters for
    Windows CE-based computers, the LP-E
    is designed to
    consume minimal power in order to extend the battery life
    of its host H/PC.

    ``Our C-Series line of
    handheld PCs are designed for professional users who place
    a premium on convenience and
    performance,'' said
    Christian Bubenheim, Compaq's marketing manager for
    handheld products. ``By offering
    network software on
    the H/PC, we streamline the installation process for
    C-Series users who want the speed and
    independence offered by Socket's Ethernet PC Card.''

    ``We designed the LP-E Card specifically for use with
    Windows CE-based handheld PCs,'' said Peter
    Socket's product marketing manager. ``Compaq's decision to
    include Ethernet software in ROM gives
    customers access to a great network solution. High
    performance just doesn't get any easier.''

    C-Series PC companion features the fastest and most
    powerful handheld processor and modem
    available, bright color and monochrome displays, and Windows
    CE 2.0, the newest member of the
    Windows operating system family. With Windows CE 2.0,
    customers can effortlessly synchronize
    information between their desktop and handheld PC. Also
    included with the Compaq C-Series are enhanced
    and asset management utilities and enhanced Pocket
    versions of desktop applications such as Outlook, with its
    suite of
    e-mail Inbox, Calendar, Contacts and Tasks
    applications, Internet Explorer, PowerPoint, Word and Excel,
    making it
    easy to learn and use.
