(Nanowerk News) mPhase/AlwaysReady, Inc. (OTCBB: XDSL), a micro and nanotechnology development company focused on advanced power and sensing solutions, today announced the completion of its 2008 strategic planning process, resulting in several new corporate developments that will accelerate the commercialization path of its revolutionary nanotechnology-based battery.

"We are also deemphasizing our IPTV assets and looking at our options to sell and/or license our intellectual IPTV property, which we believe offers great value," added Ron Durando, mPhase Chairman.
