Exhibit 99.1



Socket Mobile Reports 2012 Annual and Q4 Results


NEWARK, Calif., – February 12, 2013

– Socket Mobile, Inc. (OTC: SCKT), an innovative provider of mobile productivity solutions, today reported financial results for the year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012.


Revenue for the 2012 full year totaled $13.6 million, a decrease of 22 percent compared to revenue of $17.5 million for 2011. Net loss for 2012 was $3.3 million, or $0.68 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.4 million for 2011, or $0.56 per share.


Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $2.8 million, a decrease of 36 percent, compared to revenue of $4.4 million in the same quarter a year ago. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $677,000, or a loss of $0.14 per share, compared to a net loss of $0.4 million, or a loss of $0.08 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2011.


Kevin Mills, president and chief executive officer, commented, “In 2012, market and product transitions slowed our revenue growth in the second half of the year. New product introductions, growth in software developer applications incorporating our products, and reduced expenses have positioned us to grow to profitable operating levels in 2013.


“ In 2012, we introduced our low cost Apple certified Bluetooth barcode scanner Model 7Ci, an affordable professional barcode scanner that works with Smartphones and Tablets running Apple, Android, Blackberry and Windows/Windows Mobile operating systems. The Model 7Ci barcode scanner is now our largest selling barcode scanner. We launched a barcode scanning software developers kit (SDK) that enables developers to easily integrate our SocketScan barcode scanning software into their applications and provides their customers with tools to edit and process linear and 2D barcode information. We now have over 300 registered developers of which 85 percent are developing barcode scanning applications and over 30 percent are addressing retail point of sale applications.


“In 2012, we also introduced a new handheld computer, the SoMo655, replacing and improving our previous generation SoMo650 and extending the availability of our classic PDA for at least five years. In the fourth quarter of 2012, we launched an SDK for the SoMo655, which provides tools to application developers to customize features of its Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 operating system.


“Despite a difficult and disappointing 2012, we are optimistic about 2013. Presently, we have a significant backlog of orders in hand that are shippable during the first quarter of 2013. Anticipated revenue growth combined with reduced operating expenses, should make 2013 a positive year for Socket Mobile.”
