Published February 23, 2010 in News

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, February 23, 2010 – Neonode, Inc. (NEON.OB), the Swedish Optical Touchscreen
Technology Company, today announced the launch of zForce Pad, a new low cost 5 to13 inch widescreen touch
screen reference design for mobile internet and computer devices. zForce Pad is the latest in a series of new
innovative products based on the Neonode’s patented touchscreen technology, zForce. The new platform joins the
Company’s powerful line-up of reference designs that provide fast and economical integration of the Neonode touch
screen technology into e-book readers, digital picture frames, mobile internet devices and mobile phones.

Neonode’s latest reference design, zForce Pad, is aimed squarely at companies who develop and sell touch screen
based mobile internet and computer devices such as tablet-PCs and iPad-like products. zForce Pad offers a number
of advantages compared to existing technologies: 100% transparency (no overlay needed like in resistive or
capacitive), low cost for complete touch screen solution, ultrathin design, outstanding finger touch experiences
(multi-touch support for gesture like pinch to zoom), integrated ambient light sensor for self adjusting backlight
levels and lower power consumption and much more. Products based on the zForce Pad touch screen reference
design are already being developed by Asian companies.

“The market for this type of products is booming and the touch screen solution is destined to be a vital part of the
success of this market. We developed the zForce Pad platform together with companies in the mobile internet and
tablet PC device industry and we are confident that it will play an important role in the development of the market.
The feed-back from the companies we presented zForce Pad to at the recently completed 3GSM World Mobile
Congress in Barcelona, Spain, was very encouraging.” said Thomas Eriksson, CEO of Neonode Technologies AB.

Neonode offers touch solutions that is many times more cost effective than any other high performance touch
solutions in the market today. zForce incorporates all functionality and performance features from traditional touch
solutions like resistive and capacitive. zForce supports high resolution pen input, multi-finger touch, gestures like
zooming combined with superior picture quality. zForce is currently being integrated into products such as mobile
phones, mobile internet devices, e-books, digital picture frames and tablet PC’s.
