[This new web site and newsletter promises to highlight new and interesting WAP sites as they emerge.]
Washington, DC -- FierceWireless.com, an e-publishing company
dedicated to covering and promoting the mobile Internet, today launched the industry's first guide to WAP sites: a new "Cool WAP Site of the Day" email newsletter aimed at sifting through the exploding wireless Web to find the
coolest and most useful WAP sites.
Every day, FierceWireless.com's "Cool WAP Site of the Day" newsletter will highlight a different WAP site that makes the cut, offering a detailed
description of the site and directions on how to find it. But it won't all be good news: once a week, the newsletter will critique a site that, in
FierceWireless.com's view, just plain sucks. Sign up is free at www.fiercewireless.com or www.coolwapsiteoftheday.com.
"The idea is to identify the wireless Web's best practices and coolest
offerings in a fun and playful manner," said Jeff Giesea,
FierceWireless.com's publisher. "There are now more than 1.5 million WAP
pages on the wireless Web, and the demand for some direction in this
exploding new terrain is huge. Our readers constantly ask us to recommend
cool WAP sites. Now I can just point them to our new newsletter."
FierceWireless.com's "Cool WAP Site of the Day" newsletter will be edited by
leading WAP expert Robert Fine. Fine heads up Network XXIII, a wireless
consulting company whose projects have involved companies such as Bell
Atlantic, GTE, Hughes Network Systems, Alcatel, Raytheon, BellSouth,
AirTouch, DHL, The United Nations, Sun Microsystems, and numerous
international telecom carriers.
"If anyone can separate the wheat from the chafe on the wireless Web, it's
Robert Fine," added Giesea.
The "Cool WAP Site of the Day" is the latest of FierceWireless.com's
offerings. FierceWireless.com's main newsletter, "The Weekly Mobile Commerce
Report," launched in late March and has already attracted a fast-growing
subscriber base of more than 6,500 analysts and executives worldwide.
