SAN DIEGO, July 11, 2012 – InfoSonics Corporation (NASDAQ: IFON) today announced the launch of its new verykool® s757 Smartphone/Tablet 5-inch crossover product.

It has a 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing camera for video conferencing, 4GB of RAM with capacity for 32GB of external storage and a multitude of connectivity and media features.”
