Sourcenext Unveils Smart Gadget Pocketalk at IFA

Two-Way Voice Translation Device Makes Global Travel a Breeze - Imagine Where It Will Take You

BERLIN and PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 30, 2018 — Debuting at IFA, Pocketalkā„¢ is the portable, AI-powered instant voice translation device that makes it easy to travel the world and converse with people who speak different languages. With the ability to translate 74 different languages, Pocketalk makes it easy to understand others and be understood. Pocketalk uses WiFi, mobile data, or a personal hotspot to connect to the internet and provide the most accurate translations possible. Pocketalk will initially be available in white and then also in gold and black by end of year. Pocketalk will be available for purchase in the US starting October 10 with two pricing options:

$249 features a WiFi-enabled device
$299 adds a global SIM with two years of mobile data included

Talk the way you normally do, not just in statements or phrases. Pocketalk eliminates the need to look up words and phrases in a dictionary or on your phone. Small and compact, the device fits in your pocket, so you can take it anywhere, and you never have to hand over your phone. Whether you’re exploring a new culture while extending a business trip, backpacking through Europe, or communicating with world-class athletes at the Olympics, Pocketalk opens doors for global travelers.

“We developed Pocketalk to help connect people of all backgrounds to provide an instant open line of communication,” said Noriyuki Matsuda, CEO and founder of Sourcenext. “Our mission has always been to foster a mutual understanding and respect among different cultures. When you have the right tools, language is a gateway, not a barrier.”

Pocketalk will be available for demos at booth #110 in Hall 26. For more information, visit
