Globaltel Media, a mobile technology solutions company and intellectual property rights innovator, was awarded a U.S. patent last week for a technology method that enables the delivery of rich electronic content to mobile cellular devices.
U.S. Patent 8073895, “System and Method for Delivering Web Content to a Mobile Device,” allows for the delivery of any web-based electronic content – such as pictures, video clips, apps, music, documents, files and other rich media – to any cellular mobile device.
Many companies today use Short Messaging Service (SMS), or text messaging combined with shorter four- to six-digit phone numbers to deliver messages with electronic content to cellular users. Globaltel Media’s patent supports the practice of embedding an applet such as a URL or hyperlink into these server-initiated text messages.
“We are effectively leveling the playing field by delivering any electronic web-based content to any cellular mobile phone regardless of phone type or wireless carrier,” said Robert Sanchez, CEO and president of Globaltel Media. “Our patent makes all phones smarter.”
Less than 40 percent of U.S. cell phones are “smart” and Internet-enabled, according to Sanchez. Globally, the number is less than 10 percent.
Globaltel Media has implemented this technology since 2007 in their products, Cherple Passport, Cherple IN, Cherple Out, Cherple Alert and Cherple Dashboard. Quick, easy and effective, these solutions have helped close the gap between online and mobile communications by connecting those who are constantly on the move with the companies and brands they want to hear from.
In addition to this patent, Globaltel Media has three more mobile patent applications pending, all of which have significant market value, according to Sanchez.
“We believe these patents inherently increase the position of our company, particularly in the current environment of patent valuation related to mobile communication technology,” said Sanchez. “We are determining how best to leverage our intellectual property assets to benefit our clients and investors.”
