The accessory maker, known for its popular brands like invisibleSHIELD, ZAGGskins, ZAGGbuds and ZAGGsparq, said its mobile device protection products will be distributed by T-Mobile USA nationwide in the United States.  invisibleSHIELD, ZAGG’s flagship product, will be offered initially for the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide smartphone, which is set to be available this month.

    “T-Mobile served more than 33 million customers at the end of the first quarter of 2011 and this opportunity will introduce the unique protection provided by ZAGG products to millions of potential new customers for ZAGG,” John W. Melville, ZAGG director of wireless sales, commented in the release.

    ZAGG saw shares climb to $16.24 on Wednesday to set a new 52-week high before closing the day at $16.06, up 4.83% from the previous session’s close. About 2.76 million shares have traded hands during the session, versus the 10-day average volume of 2.95 million. The stock is currently above its 50-day moving average of $12.83 and above its 200-day moving average of $9.67.

    Financial Summary

    ZAGG posted revenue of $27.0 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011, a 207% increase from $8.8 million in the first quarter of 2010, and an 8% sequential decline as compared to $29.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.
