Ask, Julie About Wireless

Julie Ask

One of my few New Years' Resolutions: Blog on the wireless industry. My mentor here gave me the advice to blog early and blog often. I'll start with a short one announcing my areas of interest:

- Wireless access technologies: cellular, Wi-Fi, etc. …
- Wireless content: mobile games, sports, ringtones, …
- Mobile advertising and marketing: on the phone and online
- Telematics

More to come.
