So this is the first big announcement in this space for Samsung?

That is the right way to think about it -- we'll be making other announcements in the transportation space in the coming weeks and months. There is a federal mandate that all trucks over a certain size have to have an electronic logging device, or ELD. We've partnered with Magellan, who is a leader in the fleet transportation management area. They have a tremendous presence in a sector within the fleet management arena. And we have released a product that's really targeted at the sector, which we think brings a huge amount of value to fleet management companies. Both because it meets the mandate in a way that's very significant, but equally as important is that it begins to address a lot of the issues these companies have around retention and employee satisfaction. [Issues such as] using technology that's newer, that's a lot more intuitive, particularly to younger drivers. But it also takes advantage of Samsung's strengths around the security that's in our devices.
